Our CEO, Liesl Bernard, was recently interviewed by Andrew Ward of The Fresh Toast for a story on high paying cannabis careers and the burgeoning cannabis job market. Several industry experts were quoted in the article, and the consensus was that while several well-paying cannabis industry jobs are in high demand, some salaries are not up to par.
The article begins: “Staffing leaders say that the better-paying roles in cannabis are found like other industries, typically in positions requiring higher expertise or leadership responsibilities. As such, some of the top-paying cannabis careers include C-suite executives and facility management.”
“The right mix of experience, drive and knowledge are vital in landing any job,” says Liesl. “With the popularity and acceptance of cannabis growing, talent from other industries are looking to transition into the cannabis industry.”
Liesl continues to address several ways applicants can stand out in the competitive cannabis job market:
- Highlighting soft skills like communication, creativity and adaptability is still important
- Cannabis knowledge is beneficial, but not mandatory
- Play up your relevant experience that can translate to the cannabis industry
The Fresh Toast is a lifestyle and health platform with a focus on making cannabis part of the mainstream conversation. The outlet shares informative information on culture, cannabis, tech and medical marijuana.
