Tips for Breaking In?

Getting Started in Cannabis

I've been trying to get into the cannabis industry for about 2 years now, making more of an aggressive push over the last 6 months. I keep running into the issue of not having experience in the industry. However, I have too much experience in higher roles to start at an entry level position. Any tips for landing a mid to senior level role without legal experience in the industry?


As a recruiter, I've found a lot of cannabis companies value what someone outside the industry can bring to the table. Spell this out for them (include those transferable skills!) in a concise cover letter.

PS. send me your resume! [email protected]
