New Jersey is staying true to its farming reputation and history when it comes to cannabis production and sales. The demand for professionals in the business is great because the state is currently the fifth-largest marijuana retailer in the United States. Last week, a career fair featuring cannabis-related companies made this need extremely evident.
In three hours, more than one hundred people attended the Passaic County Cannabis Career Fair that was held at the main campus of the Passaic County Community College; Edwin Lopez was one of those attendees.
Lopez, who manages a local site for a medical supply company that is shutting down, is actively searching for a new position because his present one is almost phased out. He expressed his amazement at what he discovered at the job fair, stating that he’d initially attended the event as a joke but, after being there for a while, he had discovered some great opportunities.
Both the industry and the fair are incredibly real, and revenues in the space are soaring. Sales of medical and recreational cannabis exceeding $177.7 million in the third quarter of 2022, based on the state’s report. The numbers place New Jersey as the fifth largest marijuana seller in the nation. Additionally, the state anticipates that sales will keep growing.
Due to the growing strength of the sector, companies now require more human resources. ANJA Corporation manager Alexandra Verello reported that the company had a resoundingly favorable reception to its request for applicants, stating she had a full folder of resumes. This year, ANJA is hoping to obtain its marijuana permit. It was not the only business at the event whose cannabis sales license is still pending. Some job candidates, including Maureen Falzarano, were caught off guard by this fact.
Company representatives who attended the event appeared happy to have taken part. One of the attendees, TLEHL Corporation CEO Dab Riga, was gushing. He noted that the job fair was one of the most vibrant and successful events he had ever participated in.
Every job applicant who interviewed with PIX11 News expressed optimism about locating positions in an industry that is expanding quickly. Bines-Wiltshire, a job seeker at the fair, acknowledged the rapid growth of the cannabis industry, stating that it was a smart idea to put your feet in the doorway given that you rarely know where it may go.
More companies in other jurisdictions, such as India Globalization Capital Inc. (NYSE American: IGC), are also employing top-tier personnel in their bids to make pharmaceutical-grade formulations from marijuana compounds. These jobs make the industry one of those with high growth numbers nationwide.
