I was looking online for a job in the sales fieldâ€¦ I saw an advertisement from a cannabis business, they were looking for a retail SEO consultant.
The cannabis business was about 30 hours away from my home.
I did not know what style of position they were hiring for, because the only thing listed on the advertisement was the need for a cannabis consultant. The advertisement said they wanted someone with 2 years of experience. I only had 6 months of experience in the cannabis industry, however I decided to apply for the job anyway. I was called the actually next day to interview with the supervisor of the cannabis dispensary. I found out later that they were looking for someone with 2 years of sales experience. They weren’t necessarily looking for someone with cannabis industry experience, when they saw that I did have experience, they were even more happy to interview myself and others for the job. I spoke with the owner of the marijuana dispensary for a couple of hours. The guy seemed to be down to earth as well as actually friendly. When the interview was over, the supervisor told myself and others that he would let myself and others know in a couple of afternoons, then he promised to call myself and others either way, so I would know if the job was taken. Later that day the iPhone rang as well as I expected it to be a rejection call. Instead, it was an offer for a position at the retail cannabis store. The offer included full dental as well as health benefits as well as adjustable scheduling with every other weekend off.
