Getting Started in Cannabis
I have been a Sr. Executive in my career.
I have been a Sr. Executive in Sales and Sales Management in my previous career, pre-COVID, I have seen the huge possibilities with Cannabis. Where should I start and who should I speak with?
Hi Brad, I'm glad you've seen the huge amount of possibilities that exist within the cannabis industry. If you are looking to break in, I have several things that I would recommend. First, I would suggest that you check out one of our AMAs with one of our recruiters. You can find the link to the event here https://vangst.com/events/ask-me-anything. You can also always try reaching out over Linkedin!
The second thing that I would recommend would be to look into working with an ancillary service such as packaging or software. The cannabis industry needs a lot of support, and a perk of working with an ancillary service is they are less demanding for previous cannabis industry experience and are a great way to learn about the different parts of how the industry works.
