Want to work in the weed industry? 5 tips to get you to your dream job
Posted on July 12 2016
We've worked in the industry for a little while now, so here's 5 tips that will help you get your dream green job.
Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty: Most people who haven’t been growing for years don’t have much to offer except their hands and their time, you might be trimming for a few months just to get a foot in the door. That’s ok, work hard and work your way up.
Know everything: enjoying smoking isn’t the first and last thing you’ll need to know. Know your trichomes from your resin and your sativas from your indicas.
Know the law: legislation around marijuana changes every day and varies from city to city and state to state. Keeping yourself up to date with this information makes you an asset to potential employers.
Be professional: just because you’re working with weed doesn’t mean you can show up to work stoned. Be on time, well dressed and leave out the talk about how high you got that one time.
Do something different: If you’ve got a degree in horticulture, then go spend some time in a greenhouse getting your hands dirty. If you’ve got the hands on experience, maybe it’s time to go back to school to get the academics right.
