Has anyone successfully transitioned from sales management in beer/spirits industry in to cannabis? I’ve seen a few roles I’d be qualified for in the Chicago area at Canopy Growth Corp and Cresco but haven’t had much activity on my apps without connections/referrals. Appreciate advice and/or connecting me to the company!

I guess not! Cannabis is very new so I’m not surprised. It was worth a shot.


I hear profits are high....

Sorry, amigo, I guess not many have worked in either industries.

I’ve recruited for the cannabis industry in a previous role and have helped people make this exact transition.

New to this app so not sure if you can DM but if you can DM me, happy to help.

So my company got acquired by a large corporation. Things are getting weird, and even though I have 4 years at my company this larger company doesn't seem to have much opportunity for growth until the next year minimum. I got a job offer paying 54k more in base, while selling a more superior solution in the same industry. Would you leave your job for more money and enterprise experience or stay where you have tenure and ride it out the acquisition longer? I am selling into smb and mid market now
