Getting Started in Cannabis

I'm a multi unit manager in food service and looking to start a career in cannabis

Getting Started in Cannabis

I've been in the restaurant industry most of my career but am very interested in learning and growing in a the cannabis industry. I have spent a great deal of my time helping others to grow their careers. I feel like my skills are very transferable: guest experience, culture, people recruiting and growing, and growing sales/profits (Of course). I've had a couple Dispensary Manager interviews but no bites yet. I'm definitely determined and will just keep loving the no's until I find the right yes! I don't expect to start in a similar role as I desire to learn the business and how to successfully navigate the laws and expectations. I definitely can't start as an entry level position either. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I will gladly pay forward any help provided to me! We're all here for different reasons but for the same goal!

Hello Steven! Welcome to the Vangst Community. I admire your determination to get into the business. In time something will come up. Getting as familiar with the retail environment as possible will help you shine in interviews. Also, be sure to be up to date on all of your state's regulations. I'll post some helpful links below.
