Cannabis Careers In Canada

May 12, 2016

Seeking cannabis careers in Canada’s legal medical cannabis industry is no different than any other job or career. Like any job hunt, researching your potential employer long before contacting them is critical to success. Before ripping off a resume to Peace Naturals or any other Health Canada licensed producer, do some research.

By familiarizing yourself with a company, you demonstrate enthusiasm and an ability to learn. These two interpersonal skills are very important for any candidate seeking a career, but more so especially in the burgeoning Cannabis sector. The industry is constantly evolving and staying abreast of trends is a small requirement for people thinking of legal Cannabis careers.   

Depending on the licensed producer, there are opportunities for a variety of skill sets and experiences. Some positions people don’t consider are accountants, human resource professionals, graphic designers, public relations and office staff. The biggest focus, possibly because there is a “glamor factor”, is always on horticulturist or master growers.

Many people are wondering what types of jobs available in this exciting new industry, but there are, besides a few specific positions, mostly just regular 9 – 5 gigs. The biggest myth people have is jobs are only available to people who consume marijuana or have an insider knowledge of marijuana. Not true. People can learn about medicinal Cannabis and its benefits from books, YouTube videos and newspaper articles.
