I was looking online for a job in the sales field.
I saw an advertisement from a cannabis business.
They were looking for a retail marketing consultant. The cannabis business was about 30 minutes away from my home. I did not know what type 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, but I decided to apply for the job anyway. I was called the very next day to interview with the manager 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 excited to interview me for the job. I spoke with the owner of the marijuana dispensary for a couple of minutes. The guy seemed to be down to earth and very friendly. When the interview was over, the manager told me that he would let me know in a couple of days. He promised to call me either way, so I would know if the job was taken. Later that afternoon the phone rang and 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 and health benefits and flexible scheduling with every other weekend off.
