Meet All Your Hiring Needs at the Vangst Virtual Cannabis Career Fair

Left without a way to pound the pavement or attend an in-person networking event, cannabis industry employers have gone remote with their hiring strategies. In keeping with current trends, Vangst is hosting its first all Virtual Cannabis Career Fair, dedicated to linking your growing businesses with the deepest pool of talent in cannabis.

No matter what level of seniority you’re seeking, whether short-term or long-term, Vangst has innovative solutions to get you connected with the right person for the right job.

Registering for a digital booth at this year’s Career Fair lets employers collect resumes, screen and follow up with every candidate, showcase their brand, create in-booth conversations, and chat in a virtual networking hub.

These tips will help you make the most of your Virtual Career Fair experience:

The Vangst Virtual Cannabis Career Fair is putting social equity workers front and center with qualifying candidates receiving wait priority from all participating employers. The effort is designed to lower the barrier to employment for well-qualified individuals who have past cannabis arrests and/or convictions or have otherwise been disproportionately impacted by America’s War on Drugs. Vangst has also partnered with three nonprofit organizations focused on social equity, policy reform, and transformative justice in cannabis - Last Prisoner Project, Mission Green, and California Cannabis Coalition.
