R & D and Marketing Chef Looking to Transfer Skills

Getting Started in Cannabis

I'm a seasoned corporate CPG test kitchen chef with hands-on product development experience in several product formats (dry, wet, pectins and gels). I am vitally interested in transferring my skill-set over to the cannabis MIP industry, where there is such incredible new potential for product and flavor innovation. How do I get my resume looked at. I've a applieed to a few jobs, but crickets. I have so much to offer as the industry becomes more regulated, having worked in consumer foods for 20 years. Any advice is appreciated! I'm in Massachusetts.

Hi, Sarah! We need more experienced professionals like yourself coming in from other industries. I often think the best way to get your resume looked at is by connecting with someone within the organization (via Vangst, LinkedIn, Twitter) and requesting an informational interview, or casual conversation about what it's like to work there. If all goes well, that connection might be willing to send a note to the hiring manager or recruiter. I happen to split my time between MA and VT, and may have some folks to connect you with - I'll send you a request here and we can set up a time to speak if you'd like.
