TRADE TALK: Magazine ranks Sundog among best places to work

For the second consecutive year, Advertising Age Magazine has named Fargo-based Sundog to the magazine’s list of best places to work in marketing and media.

The publication recognized 40 firms nationwide that combine benefits and culture to create environments where employees thrive.

Sundog, a marketing and technology company, was No. 22 on the list this year.

Last year it was in the No. 25 spot.

“We’re honored and, once again, humbled to be part of such a distinguished list of companies,” said Brent Teiken, Sundog chief executive officer.

Some of the perks Sundog employees enjoy:

Fishing trips, holiday parties and weekly get-togethers; monthly chair massage days; and open use of Twitter, Facebook and other social media on smart phones provided by the company.

Rehab grants

The city of Fargo’s Department of Planning and Development is accepting applications from downtown property owners for $1,500 in matching grants to complete improvement projects.

In the past decade, the program has helped more than 60 property owners make a significant impact in the central business district.

While the funds are often used for storefront rehabilitation, they can also be used for other exterior improvements.

To apply, call (701) 241-1474, or visit the Web at www.cityoffargo.com/planning

Applications must be received by 4 p.m. April 27.

Bobcat job fair

Bobcat has scheduled a job fair April 12-13 at the Springs Golf Course in Gwinner, N.D.

The fair is from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. both days.

The company wants to fill production and engineering jobs, and summer positions.

Company representatives will accept applications and conduct interviews at the two-day event.

Interested individuals can call (701) 678-6313 to schedule an interview.

Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins will also be accepted.
