The Vangst Cannabis Career Summit takes place on Thursday, January 18 at the City Hall venue in Denver. Lining City Hall will be cannabis companies of all sizes, ready to answer attendees questions regarding how to make the jump into the green space. It’s a once in a lifetime chance to talk to big name cannabis companies such as Native Roots, LivWell, O.pen Vape, and Leafly, to name a few.
At last year’s career fair, Vangst matched around four-hundred qualified candidates to their dream jobs. This year alone, Native Roots announced they are looking to hire at least one-hundred employees.
Their goal is to advance career-enriching knowledge and better business practices within the entire professional cannabis industry. With more and more states building cannabis markets, the summit will also serve as an educational summit.
