Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone! Newbie here at Vangst.

I am currently employed as an Administrative Manager in the Healthcare Industry. I am looking to make a transition into the Cannabis Industry because it is exciting and new, but also because it is so important.

I live in Missouri where things are just starting to open up for Medical Use. I am struggling with how to get started. I have applied for any Management position I have seen come open with no luck.

Is there a way to find connection with people here who are looking for Admin Management instead of Retail?

How likely is it that there are businesses here in MO that would need my skill set?

How would I better present myself with no experience within this industry?

I have a diverse background and multiple "talents" (transferrable skills). I wear and have worn multiple hats. I love variety and learning. I pick up on things very easily and quickly.

Please help - I want to be done with traditional Healthcare.

Thanks all! Be blessed!

Hey Lori -- I hope you're doing well!

Missouri is a great market to be living in because its growing quickly! There are definitely opportunities in more administrative roles. Every company, whether its antically or plant touching, tend to need administrative help at some point. I would recommend keeping an eye out for roles within a corporate setting to start, then branch out from there. We've filled a few roles like this before, you may just have to be patient!
