MEETUP FOCUS: Workforce/Operator Member Meetup Mixer
THE OPPORTUNITY: Employees meet Employers! From Aug. 20th to late December, the industry awaits licensure. During this quiet period, we saw a unique opportunity to divide our highly popular monthly into two events. We begin with our Member’s Only Meetup and then transition to a public Job Fair. Our meetup will serve to provide industry updates from both the department and MoCannTrade. The job fair portion will serve to bring our member license applicants and interested MMJ industry employees together, face to face in a speed interview type format. The timing is perfect (just a few weeks before licensure) and so our workforce meetups create that first connection between employer and employee.
In addition, we have invited relevant staffing and HR resources to have an event presence and introduce themselves to the industry. These are the firms that will help provide staffing resources, benefits, on-boarding, training and expertise as license applicant’s need to on-board the nearly 4000 person Missouri medical cannabis industry workforce. This is the first time we are inviting the job seeking public into our meetups to make this connection. We believe everyone benefits from having the access and opportunity to connect in a casual and open environment and work together to advance the Missouri industry.
THE FORMAT: The meetup starts with just our members and the service provider sponsors in the room for the first hour. We’ll kick things off with our usual intro and industry update, then we’ll have the staffing and HR firms spend a few minutes introducing themselves and letting our license applicant members about the value of the services they provide. Immediately after those intros, we’ll open the doors to our awaiting job seekers to work the room and enjoy 1hr+ of speed interview style intros with our license applicant members (employers). Workforce candidates will have a name tag identifying what role(s) they are interested in and are encouraged to spend approx. 60 seconds at each stop during the speed dating portion. At the conclusion of the speed dating, we’ll flip to open networking for the remaining time with employers, employees and sponsors all working the room.
