Getting a job you love is most people’s goal in life. For some, that might include getting hired to work in the local cannabis industry that has seen a massive boom these past few years. The people who work in this field love what they do, are passionate about helping others, and serve the needs of those who come through their doors. They are also able to build a trusting relationship and bond with people who come looking for help, which is rewarding for compassionate people.
First things first: know the right way to approach getting hired. If you do that, you are more likely to have a chance at getting a foot in the door.
Do Some Research
Working in the legal cannabis field is not for everyone. It is best to do your research first and know what you’re jumping into. Researching companies means you are serious about the industry and have done some homework. Take time to figure out who works in the industry, what they do, how much they get paid, where they work, and why it matters to them. Start by doing lots of reading. Go online, do some internet searches, and join some newsletters to brush up on the industry. Read books by known authors with knowledge of the industry and find the latest research and trends on these topics if you haven’t already. Attend and network at events that are in the area. Hobnob with folks who know the ropes to make some inroads.
Know Their Why
Companies all have their own reasons for doing business. The main one should not be to make a profit off people. Dive deep into their website, bios, backgrounds, and information. Find an organization that matches up with your enthusiasm for helping people and that you would be proud to say you work for. Keep in mind the best missions are focused on helping others. Medical marijuana serves a higher purpose than just dispensing cannabis. It helps relieve pain symptoms, support pain management, improve mental health, and offer peace of mind.
Part of a Team
Going to work is not just showing up by yourself to do a job. There are some solitary jobs, but other people are almost always involved. Most jobs involve some type of teamwork and being with others a large part of the day. People are the most important asset to any organization or company. To be a good fit for the business, you align with the company culture and begin to integrate into its structure.
If your heart is not in it, don’t start. If you find it is not a good fit, ask to move into a different area of the company or try something else. Sometimes things change, but most people in this industry look to grow and learn more about it to help others.
Be sure to ask lots of questions. Don’t hesitate to ask the people who work there what they do and why. Find out how they got their start and engage in conversation. This is the time to find out if it is a good fit. It will be the best decision you ever made.
