What is the most needed position in the industry right now?

In 2016 I was able to land 2 cannabis positions off Craigslist. Very random but I've had a ton of success getting jobs or gigs on Craigslist. (I was located in CA at the time) I'd say Craigslist still has random opportunities to get your foot in the door. (As always be safe while on the internet)

Howdy,

I am a West Texas Marketer who has some experience in the New Mexico Dispensary Scene.

I'm Actually looking to leave West Texas and move somewhere colder and Recreational of course.

However, I have a pleathera of CBD and Cannabis Product Placement Pictures,

I was wondering If anyone has figured how to upload a picture on the Community Board yet?

I Hope all is well.

Hi everyone!

I'm sure like many, I am interested in getting into the cannabis industry by hopefully opening up a dispensary for recreational marijuana. However, it's still a bill that needs to be passed in my state.

I'm looking for someone who has any hot tips or pointers in what it's like to get started, especially while we sit in limbo awaiting legislation. I don't want to get into the business too late as I want to have things lined up and ready to launch when we get the green light. Thanks for you input and advice!

Hey Rachael, I love how proactive you are and the eagerness will get you far. I have connected with the CEO of https://www.indacutca.com/home . You should look him up on LinkedIn and make the connection. He's been able to start a dispensary in CA and is now a Multi-State Operator (MSO) I could be a great resource for information.

Hi Rachael, Like you, I'm exploring opportunities to break into the cannabils industry. I have signed up for a webinar about Virginia Medical Marijuana Dispensary Training with LGA https://leafygreenagency.com/register-now/ for a list of courses they offer. Somewhere in my research, I saw the cost for licensing in VA, a total of $70K; $10K for the application and $60K for the license. It's not a cheap endeavor. I'm not looking to own a dispensary, but I figure this webinar is a good overview of the industry.

My primary interest is compliance, I have tons of experience workng under federal regulations; but I'm also interested in the possibility of recruiting for the industry. Of all my jobs, I found the most value in helping people find a job that changed their life for the better. Alas, the dot.com bust lead me into federal contracting where I've been ever since. Good luck!

If anyone is ever looking to get a kick-start in the industry, an awesome way to do that is by joining our GIGS team! We offer tons of temp and even temp-to-hire roles; GIGS is a fantastic way to familiarize yourself with the way cannabis works and allows Vangst members to be playful with their career path and see what exactly suits their fancy in the long run!

Emily-Singer: Hi,

Thats so exciting Emily! I would say based on where you plan to work, educate yourself on the state regulations and requirements; once you have all you need to apply I would do some research on specific areas of the industry to see what really interests you!
