Earlier this week, WeedHire.com
, one of the leading resources in cannabis career searches, released their latest technological employment tool -- the first ever smartphone app to connect weed workers with potential cannabusinesses
While visitors to WeedHire.com were once forced to rely solely on their computers to scour the site for high-paying gigs in the cannabis industry
, the latest mobile app puts the pot job finding power at the fingertips of anyone with an Android phone. In addition, the company, which is part of Anything IT, says that a version of the app has been submitted to Apple, and should be available for iPhone users within the next few weeks.
"The new mobile app will allow users to conveniently access WeedHire.com right from their phone where they can review open positions and apply directly from wherever they are," David Bernstein, CEO of WeedHire.com, said in a statement. "This means people can see the most recent jobs as they come out, without needing to be in front a computer, making WeedHire.com that much more efficient for our users."
With more states moving to legalize marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes, the cannabis industry is becoming one of the fastest growing job markets in the United States. WeedHire.com, which is similar by design to traditional job search sites like Monster.com, serves as a mainframe connection between pot professionals and the legal marijuana industry.
“Current job postings for cannabis related employment include many high-paying jobs such as: Growers, Budtenders, Dispensary Operators, Security Guards, Dispensary Administrators, Solar Panel Specialists, Delivery Drivers, Lab Techs, Marketing Specialists, Lawyers, Insurance Agents and Government Jobs,” according to the company’s press release.
There is speculation that the cannabis industry has already contributed to over 175,000 new jobs in the United States.
