There are a lot of people who are out work right now and this one of the few areas of the economy that is growing. No pun intended.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 21, 2011
THCjobs.com is the first job board specifically designed for the medical marijuana industry. As more and more states pass medical marijuana laws, new companies are coming in and creating jobs. People are currently looking for these positions, but are having a hard time finding where they are located online.
The site’s founder, Greg Olson, wanted to eliminate this problem. Olson is quoted, “There are a lot of people who are out work right now and this one of the few areas of the economy that is growing. No pun intended. There are a lot of companies who are looking to hire people, but there was not a single site devoted to employment in this industry. We wanted to create a platform where employers and prospective employees could connect. I think our company mission, which is to connect passionate and talented people with companies and organizations in the marijuana industry, really drives that point home. To many people the marijuana jobs that are listed on our site are their dream jobs”.
The layout of the website is very simple. You probably could not tell a difference in it from other job sites until you look at the jobs posted. There are currently budtender jobs, receptionist positions at medical marijuana dispensaries, and sales positions from companies who design products for the marijuana industry. THCjobs is also using social networking sites like twitter and facebook in order to let people know about any new job opportunities.
The site is free to use by both employers and job seekers. Starting on March 1st, 2011 the site will give companies the option to feature their jobs for $25. Olson said, “This is an extremely fair model. We are actually less interested in money than we are getting people back to work".
