The staffing company FlowerHire reports a cannabis job surge, notable for an industry already creating positions at a record rate.
- FlowerHire CEO David Belsky says companies—emboldened by legal weed’s new essential status—recently have returned to pre-COVID levels of interviewing for more senior positions.
- Among those in demand—beyond folks with the always-welcome skills of finance and accounting—are people with supply chain, demand-planning and forecasting experience.
- In 2019, the U.S. had 340,000 legal-market jobs. According to New Frontier Data, the total could grow to 743,000 by 2025. If federal legalization happens, it could be more than twice that.
