One of the most common questions that I get from readers is how to get a job in the marijuana industry. A large percentage of those questions are specifically about how to get a job in Colorado. The first ever marijuana industry job fair is happening next week in Colorado, and if you are looking to crack into the industry, this is going to be the best way to do so. See more below:
Colorado's legal marijuana industry is booming, and every day, more people are moving out here seeking jobs and a way to enter the industry. It's typically a difficult process for both employers and would-be employees, but Colorado's first ever weed-centric job fair, "CannaSearch" aims to change that.
"CannaSearch," hosted by O.penVAPE, will take place next Thursday, March 13 at the O.penVAPE headquarters, located at 1058 Delaware Street in Denver. Anyone job seeker can attend, and companies interested in hiring can still join the party.
The event will run all day, from 11am-7pm. 15-17 companies have already signed up for the event, but it's not too late to get a table and take part in the country's first marijuana job fair. If your dispensary or business is interested in having a table at the event, check out the CannaSearch event page on Facebook!
As for the job seekers, if you're a patient or enthusiast looking for a job in the industry, this is the place to be, as companies from Dixie Elixirs to The Hemp Connoisseur will be in attendance. Many of the businesses at the event are ancillary to the cannabis industry, and thus do not even require an MMED badge for hire (though some do, and it will help).
That means rather than waiting in lines all day and entering a lottery at the MMED, you have a much easier, user-friendly way to meet many of the industry's biggest companies and be considered for a position at one of them.
