The cannabis industry has become one of the fastest growing industries in the US since the relaxation of many cannabis laws for both medicinal and recreational use.
Because of this, the number of cannabis jobs available are growing day by day, but there is so much competition for these jobs that you need to stand out from the crowd in order to get noticed.
The way to do this is to carry out research, and this will give you an inch over other candidates. If you can get a foot in the door, there is so much opportunity available.
It is important to be patient, yet persistent when you are applying for jobs in the cannabis industry. For example, it is not uncommon for someone to apply for twenty or so positions and fail to get the job before they are successful.
Don’t be disheartened! It is important to learn from each failed application and take forward any mistakes and correct them next time round.
The Key to Success…
Especially for new entrants with limited experience, doing your research is so crucial. Everyone has to start somewhere, so don’t worry about starting from square one.
It’s just a case of learning something new every day. You’d be surprised how easy it is to learn the basics. For example, there are many great videos on YouTube which are so helpful, and watching videos is a lot more fun that reading.
Let’s take an example. Say you are applying for a job with an established company. It is important to check out their website and see who they work with, and their social media locations.
Note down a few key facts. Maybe they have won an award? You’ll certainly get brownie points for bringing these things up! It show’s you are taking a keen interest in the business.
Why not go to a local cannabis conference and get speaking to people. Building up personal relationships with people at these conferences will quickly lead to interviews and valuable contacts for the future.
Even if the person you are speaking to isn’t looking to recruit, they may know someone who will.
Plus, there are many great blogs out there which offer fantastic content. You can learn a lot simply by reading these websites.
