Marijuana Resume Help
To tell you a bit about myself, my name is JR Hindman and if you need marijuana resume help then you came to the right place. My professional credentials include over 15 years of combined experience as a staffing executive, career consultant, and freelance resume writer. I have owned and operated Pro Resume Builder LLC since 2010, and I have helped thousands of people to land their dreams jobs by providing them with effective resumes formatted to fit the needs of potential employers in just about every conceivable industry.
I also moved to Colorado in 2010, and that was my formal introduction to the world of marijuana. I myself became a “caretaker” and learned all about the intricacies of growing high-grade cannabis, both in large production environments as well as small-scale growing operations. I worked with all sorts of marijuana professionals, and performed just about every task there is from seed to sale (trimmer, budtender, etc). In fact, this was how I supplemented my income for years as I was growing my resume writing business.
Then, in 2016, as the industry really started to take off and the rest of the US started to embrace legalized marijuana, my two worlds collided and Marijuana Resumes was born!
Marijuana Careers & Cannabis Industry Jobs
Marijuana careers are some of the fastest growing careers in the world right now, and cannabis industry jobs are popping up everywhere. In the US alone, over half of the states have introduced some form of legalized medical marijuana, while a handful of other states have also legalized recreational usage. It’s projected that the cannabis industry will create millions of new jobs in the upcoming decade, and it set to outpace jobs in manufacturing, utilities, and even the government!
Well first you need to decide what you want to do, and how you can bring value to a cannabis company. Let’s face it, not that many people have a diverse history in the cannabis industry because until recently there was no industry to speak of! So if you’re a newbie you’ll need to focus on your most transferable skills, and you’ll need to decide the best way to get your foot in the door. On the other hand, if you’re an experienced grower, or you’ve held other cannabis industry jobs in the past, then you’ll have a lot more to talk about on your marijuana resume. But either way, you will need to do some research if you want to succeed and land the perfect job for you.

Affordable Freelance Resume Writer
As I mentioned previously, I am a small businessman and freelance resume writer with years of experience in both the hiring industry and cannabis industry. But what I didn’t mention were the benefits of working with a freelance resume writer – first of which is the cost! I do not advertise my services and work mostly off of referrals, so with very little overhead I can pass the savings on to my clients.
The result is that you only pay a fraction of what you would at one of the “larger” online agencies, who generally outsource their work to affordable freelance resume writers like me anyways. I know because I used to work for some of the largest companies out there, and I know that you are NOT getting what you pay for with them! But you are with me.
I offer completely personalized services and an in-depth industry knowledge that you won’t find anywhere else, not to mention absolutely unbeatable prices.
