Using a recruiter is beneficial not only to the candidate but also to the company hiring. Recruitment firms are built to bring together top talent and roles that they will flourish in and bring value to. Specialty recruitment firms like Growing Talent work with niche industries and verticals, cannabis in our case, to assist both talent and company in finding the right fit. Still not convinced? We’ve outlined the recruiter’s role for those hiring and looking to get hired in the cannabis industry to help you decide if a recruitment firm like Growing Talent is right for you.
When Looking for a Job
When you’re looking for a new job or considering a career change, it can seem incredibly daunting, especially in an industry as new as cannabis. Having some assistance when looking for a job is never bad, and recruiters are a great way to get the help you need to secure a top position. A recruitment team will be able to place you in a position that best suits your skills and works well with your experience. They have insider information about what the company is looking for in their next hire and can more accurately pair you with a job that is right for you and the business.
As cannabis is such a new and regulated industry, any recruiter would recommend educating yourself on the basics before going in for an interview. Growing Talent gives you a leg up on the competition by providing best in class training. Recruiting specialists will also go over your experience to identify your transferable skills and strengths. Our goal is not just to help get you a job but help you hit the ground running on your career in cannabis.
On the other end of the hiring process is the company looking for top talent to help round out their team. When your business is hiring for a new position, you want to make sure you are getting the best possible talent responding to your opening. Especially in cannabis, when many applicants will need to have their experience translated from a more traditional role, a recruitment team can be very helpful. A recruitment specialist will be able to listen to your company’s specific needs and connect you to talent that you may not otherwise be able to find.
Many organizations assume that because they get a lot of applications they must be finding the best talent, however that isn’t always the case. A recruiter like Growing Talent will not only help you sort through your current applicants to find the best of the bunch, but we will also be able to actively recruit top talent that has not directly applied for your position. It’s not just about going through applicants to see who is a good fit, but listening to your needs and seeking out the best talent for that role. We don’t just want you to hire the best people who applied, we want to help you hire the best people period.
An Invaluable Network
Whether you are hiring or looking to get hired, the network of a recruitment firm is an invaluable tool for your search. Not only will the network be a great place to find talent, but it is also a great opportunity for those actively seeking placement to interact with multiple companies, as well as other professionals in the industry. These connections to both companies and professionals will help you to make introductions as seamlessly as possible. Especially in the cannabis industry where there are not yet many established business networks, the community created by a recruitment firm like Growing Talent is a hub for interaction and exploration.
