Humboldt Cannabis Job Fair

Humboldt Cannabis Job Fair

Humboldt Green is pleased to announce that we are continuing a tradition that began last year by throwing the second annual Humboldt Cannabis Job Fair. The future of regulated commercial cannabis will provide great employment opportunities for the local economy, and harnessing this growth for the betterment of our community is our goal at Humboldt Green.

At this year’s Cannabis Job Fair, we will lead a resume building and interview workshop for employment applicants.

Beyond the green hills, pure water, and lush valleys of Humboldt County, we believe our most precious resource is the social capital that has grown within our community through years of innovation, experimentation, and cooperation. Master cultivators, breeders, trimmers, cannabis product innovators and producers, along with general contractors, architects, engineers, accountants, and electricians, will need to depend on each other’s skills and services so that we all may prosper in the years to come.  Through events like Cannifest, and the Cannabis Job Fair, Humboldt Green is putting our specialists on a pedestal so that we can show the world what has been growing behind the Redwood Curtain.

The Cannabis Job Fair will be held at the Main Stage building on the second day of Cannifest, Sunday April 16, from 11am to 1pm.  Please note that there will be 4 stages of Cannifest Talks going on and your ticket includes these educational and community building events.
