Why You Should Attend
1 – If you can locate someone who takes an interest in your skills or personality, you might land a new job with more opportunity.
2 – You never know who you’ll meet. These events often have people with large sums of money burning a hole in their pocket. Not everyone has money though so be prepared to follow up and share plenty of business cards.
3 – Many decision makers will be attending. Their goal is to beat other companies in sales and they’re doing everything they can to save money on traditional costs. If they can save big thanks to new connections, they’re more likely to hire you and give you referrals for opportunities.
4 – Portland is between California and Oregon and conveniently located right in the epicenter of legal cannabis. If you want to work in the west coast cannabis community, now is your chance to make something happen!
