Cannabis Industry Retail Resume
Seattle, WA 98112
Let me begin by saying thank you for your consideration. I'm excited for the opportunity to represent your company in today's fast-changing market. I'm a degreed botanical biochemist and cannabis enthusiast looking for part time employment in the industry and I would love to join your team.
With over 10 years in promotions and sales in addition to my laboratory background, I have had the pleasure of working on every level of experiential marketing from brand ambassador and team lead to tour and market manager with a range of brands and products at trade shows, conventions, festivals, concerts, in-store demos, nationwide tours and much more. The industry is very fast paced and consumer oriented, requiring meticulous attention to detail, extensive product knowledge, and the abilityto keep calm and collected while providing an exceptional and memorable customer experience.
I love what I do so much and professionalism remains a top priority. I don't crack under pressure and I'm not afraid to make authoritative decisions and take accountability for those decisions. My time management skills allow me to multitask and allocate my time appropriately to get things done correctly and still easily meet shifting deadlines.I have smoked cannabis for about half of my life and my passion for plants (cannabis in particular) motivated me through two botanically focused science degrees and was my primary reason for relocating to Washington from Houston, Texas.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you!
