One of the most common questions that I get from friends and family is ‘how do I get a job in the marijuana industry?’ The question is popular for understandable reasons. The marijuana industry is fun, exciting, and has virtually endless potential right now. What I always encourage people to do is to attend job fairs, and to check out online job boards.
A marijuana job fair (Juana Career Fair) is coming to Bellevue, Washington later this month. It’s my understanding that the event is free to the first 100 people that RSVP. Spread the word! Below is more about the event, via the event’s Facebook page:
