Job Interview Success in the Cannabis Industry – Our Top Tips

No matter what industry you are in, job interviews are always a stressful experience. To perfect your interview technique, it can take many bad interviews to really get the hang of it.

When so many people are applying for the same position as you, especially in the cannabis industry, you need to stand out from the crowd and demonstrate how you have something different to offer.

If you browse a cannabis jobs website such as http://jobs.cannabis.net/, you will quickly realize there are lots of opportunities out there, but this doesn’t make it any easier in landing a job. If you find a job you like and manage to earn an interview, here are some top tips for being successful at interview.

Learn About the Business

If you are applying for a dispensary for example, it is essential you know the strains that sell well and give an accurate and complete description of their genetic makeup, as well as their effect on the user.

If you are asked about a strain that you don’t know about, think outside the box and say, well, that is a good strain, but I have always found that this strain is a good alternative. It will show to your interviewer that you have sound knowledge.

Dress Appropriately for the Position You are Applying For

Gone are the days of suits, shirts and ties. You don’t want to look overdressed. Of course, dress smartly, but in a way that shows you are serious but not corporate and rigid.

Maybe do some research as to how existing employees dress and take it from there. If you can’t find out what they wear, have a look on the company’s social media profiles for some insight.

Perfect your Resume

Having a sharp resume is essential. Don’t make it boring – make it interesting. An interviewer will review loads of resumes, and your one might be overlooked if you don’t do anything to make it look great.
