The Cannabis Jobs Market – Where is it Going, and How Can You Get In the Mix?

Wednesday, June 1st at 12 pm CST

The legal cannabis industry is expected to eventually provide more than 1.5 million jobs in the US alone. But what are the biggest trends in the cannabis jobs market today and what can would-be industry professionals do when they’re ready to seek out a career in cannabis?

About this Webinar

According to the 2022 Leafly jobs report, there are now more legal cannabis professionals than hairstylists, barbers, and cosmetologists combined. Luckily for job seekers, these positions include a wide range of “plant-touching” and in-direct ancillary cannabis jobs, covering fields as varied as accounting, legal affairs, security, construction, human resources, compliance, and much more. For many (if not most) of these jobs, prior experience with cannabis may not be required, and applicants may find that they don’t even need to live in a state that has legalized cannabis. In our Rootwurks webinar “The Cannabis Jobs Market – Where are We Going, and How Can You Get In the Mix?” we are joined by two expert panelists who will discuss the biggest trends in the cannabis jobs market today and what would-be industry professionals should do when they’re ready to seek out a career in cannabis.
Subjects to be covered may include: • What are the big job trends we can expect in cannabis in the coming year or two? • Which jobs are hiring the most, and which job markets are the most thriving? • Does prior job experience matter? • What are the biggest misconceptions people have about working in cannabis? • Is there still a stigma surrounding a career in cannabis? • What role have the pandemic and “the Great Resignation” played in the cannabis job market? • What role has remote work played? Do you have to live in a legal cannabis state to work in the industry? • How diverse is the cannabis industry? • What makes a job in cannabis unique?
