How to Get a Job in the Cannabis Industry
So, you’ve finally decided that you want to work with cannabis. You’re ready do take the step and quit your job. But how do you land a sweet gig in the cannabis industry? Here’s what we recommend.
Keep on the Lookout
As Fortune explains, use traditional search methods to find work in your area. In legal states, you can use normal search engine sites like Craigslist to find good jobs. If you keep looking all the time, you’ll find something good.
Be Adaptable to Change
If you work in cannabis, chances are you are going to be getting thrown curve balls all the time. As Fortune reminds us, you need to be quick to accept change. If taxes go up, new laws get introduced, or new opportunities come along, you need to be ready.
Highlight the Experience You Have
You may not have any experience in the cannabis industry, and that’s OK. It’s a new industry, and a lot of people are trying to break into it, but as Potguide explains, you can leverage the experience you already have. If you’re an experienced HR employee and you want to work hiring cannabis workers, use that. If you’re a botanist, you can get a job in a grow. Use what you already know to get ahead!
Don’t Expect to Get Rich Quick
Even though the cannabis industry is growing like crazy and making tons of money, don’t expect it to solve your money problems overnight. Like other lines of work, you need to be patient, and sometimes start at the bottom and work your way up. It’ll be worth it!
