CannaCareers is a collaboration between WOCC (Women of Color in Cannabis), THC Staffing, Quality Control Analytics and Joint Venture & Co.
In early 2020, WOCC wanted to provide professional development resources to those who might've found themselves recently unemployed, facing reduced hours at work or those interested in maximizing newly found free time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We wanted to create a network of resources for those who wanted to enter the professional Cannabis Industry space but were unsure where to begin. WOCC connected with trusted Women-owned businesses (THC Staffing, Quality Control Analytics and Joint Venture Co.) to create a program previously unseen in the Cannabis industry.
CannaCareers is a one-stop-shop for personal development, job sourcing, and a place to learn the industry skills and qualifications you will need to begin a career in Cannabis. These resources have been vetted and tested to ensure they are safe environments for BIPOC folx interested in participating in the Cannabis industry.
Whether you are transitioning into the Cannabis industry or leveraging your Cannabis experience to move up, WOCC hopes these resources will help guide you on your path to success.
Our Job Board includes job postings in the Cannabis space across a wide range of locations, pay ranges and position titles. The commonality amongst all the opportunities listed here is that we have VETTED each of the companies to determine if they are safe spaces for us all.

Companies qualified to list jobs on this board have been vetted so we believe they are spaces conducive to healthy work environments for POC and other marginalized groups.

Live modules are hosted via Zoom; register below to attend and get your opportunity to ask questions and learn. Live webinars are recorded and will appear full-length along with any additional module materials in the .EDU section above.
WOCC CannaCareer: Office Hours is the first initiative launched in November 2020 from our CannaCareers program. Currently, Office Hours are hosted by Cannabis staffing legend and owner of THC Staffing, Danielle Schumacher.
These 30min - 1hr long sessions provide participants the opportunity to update their resume for Cannabis job placement.
Future Office Hours will be offered by skill development module hosts, Cannabis entrepreneurs and other thought leaders for one on one sessions to answer Cannabis job and entrepreneurship questions.
