Ever wonder how to get a GIG through Vangst? Here are some quick tips!

Getting Started in Cannabis


My name is Taylor and I am a Recruiting Manager for our GIGs department here at Vangst!

I wanted to share some tips on how to get a GIG with us!

1. The first thing you should do on your end would be to make sure you have a completely up-to-date profile.

2. Next, would be to get connected with someone who works in GIGS. Do this by checking to see a "Recruiter" tag, then click on their profile to indicate which type of jobs they staff for. You should be targeting the recruiters that mention they staff for GIGS.

3. Once you have connected with a GIGS recruiter, shoot them a message expressing your interest in setting up a time to see how they can help you find a GIG. It would also benefit you if you attach a resume that is fully up to date and in a NON-Indeed format.

4. Be flexible in scheduling and make sure that you are completely prepared to talk at the agreed time. It is best practice to make sure that you are in a quiet area with little to no background noises or distractions. If you have to reschedule that is always okay, but please be mindful by reaching out ahead of time to do so.

5. During your conversation with a GIGS recruiter, it is best to be open as possible and give any and all details about yourself so that they can find the perfect fit for you!

If you do all four of those while being very patient and understanding. You will find a GIG with Vangst!
