NCIA 2019 Rewind With Justinian Mason And Christie Lunsford. A job recruiting platform specifically for the cannabis industry with Justinian Mason, Business Development Manager at Vangst Talent Network. VTN is a job recruiting platform specifically for the cannabis industry. Vangst is one of a handful of staffing and recruiting firms that focus on the cannabis industry. Another important topic in the cannabis industry is opening up business opportunities for those who have been most impacted by the war on drugs, so equity and diversity issues are on our minds as we’re building this new industry together. We’ve seen in certain states like Massachusetts & Oakland CA programs that set aside a certain number of direct to plant licenses for people of color, but that is more of an ownership level. Vangst believes that having an exceptional internal team allows them to best serve their clients. That’s why VTN prides itself on hiring the most talented internal staff for every aspect of our business. As well as their constant growth is a testament to their devotion to being ahead of the game in the rapidly growing cannabis space. We talk about the advice Justinian has for someone who wants to get a job in the cannabis industry but has no real experience yet and much more.
