DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/06/14 -- O.penVAPE, the largest national brand in cannabis, will host O.penVAPE's CannaSearch, a job fair, at its downtown headquarters, 1058 Delaware, March 13, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
O.penVAPE designed the event to help match job seekers with Denver cannabis employers. Todd Mitchem, O.penVAPE's chief revenue officer and spokesperson, said local cannabis businesses are experiencing rapid growth and are seeking qualified professionals. Employers enthusiastically responded to the event and now 15 top cannabis employers have reserved space. They are hoping to hire employees in the areas of management, retail, sales, marketing, accounting, IT, quality control, and administration. Most of the jobs available are very mainstream, traditional jobs that just happen to be in the cannabis industry.
"Our colleagues in the industry will be there ready to hire," Mitchem said. "O.penVAPE and its affiliates plan to hire 120 people this year. This is a first for the industry and we plan to host similar events in other states."
Just some of the positions being offered are bookkeeper, customer service representatives, sales support team, copywriters, graphic designers, tour guides, Web developers, and a variety of other mainstream jobs. There will also be several dispensaries present that will be looking for budtenders and trimmers.
All applicants must be aged 21 or older. Refreshments will be provided.
"We anticipate turnout will be high... but not high," he said. "Seriously, this is a fun event, but keep your cannabis at home. We are professional companies looking for cannabis loving professionals."
O.penVAPE will award 100 people with some free O.penVAPE gear and a spot at the front of what is sure to be a long line. To be considered, submit a picture of your most professional self on the O.penVAPE Facebook page today. www.facebook.com/openvape
