The cannabis industry needs good people, fast.
Accountants, budtenders, cannabis chefs, cultivation supervisors, dispensary managers, extractors, trimmers, and everything in between.
That’s why a new crop of recruiting services are putting a stake in the ground early and specializing in staffing for cannabiz.
HempStaff specializes in job training and placement services for most of the job titles listed above. In one of their blog posts, they argue that the cannabis industry is being held to a higher standard due to historic negative stereotype associated with the “lazy stoner”. They emphasize that professionalism is even more important when trying to establish what it means to be a legal cannabis professional.
The sheer number of these specialty agencies is a strong indicator of the industry’s need for talent and growth opportunities.
