I actually broke down and filled out a job application.
Believe it or not, the only time I have ever filled out a job application before was a practice one in high school.
I took a business and employment class, which I highly recommend to all young people, by the way. This class gave us a few different job applications, which we had to fill out honestly but creatively, and then create a resume to go with them. I thought it was stupiud at the time, but now it really helped me out, I would have been lost otherwise! I applied for a job as a budtender at the new cannabis dispensary they opened down by the highway. It was sort of a funny story, because although I had been selling marijuana for years at this point, I knew I shouldn’t put that on the application. On the other hand I didn’t want to lie, so I decided to grab the bull by the horns, and I went to talk to the manager of the cannabis dispensary. I just laid it out honestly for him, and told him I had years of experience with buying, selling, growing, and smoking different strains of cannabis, but I didn’t know how to put that on a resume. He appreciated my candor, and said he was actually looking for buyers and growers of different kinds of marijuana. He would need someone with experience to drive to different marijuana grows to test and sample their products. I asked him to pinch me, because that job sounded like heaven.
