Getting Started in Cannabis Industry

Introduce Yourself

Hello Vangst Community! I found Vangst while researching Cannabis Careers. I have been spending time reading articles, watching videos, and finding companies. I live and own a home in San Diego. I have an executive background in Real Estate, and Broadcast Television. I am used to working within a regulatory environment, which should translate well with Cannabis regulations. I have also spent time socially since 1987, in the Grateful Dead community. I am comfortable with any social stigma, and in many ways I am a pioneer. I look forward to starting my Cannabis Career in a sales capacity, and to connecting with many of you in the industry. Please let me know if you may be of assistance in my search of a Cannabis Career, or if I may be of assistance. Thank you!

Greetings Charles,

You should look on LinkedIn and search in the united states, remote and cannabis. They are a lot of companies looking for people such as yourself. I found Linkedin's cannabis opportunities had a lot more executive-level positions. I would also look for an executive recruiter that focuses on the industry. I know several and I can send you some info. I just joined RavOffers's HR department, so maybe we will have something coming up there. Please reach out to me if you need any help.
