If you know your stuff about cannabis and are in the market for a new job, here’s a possibility.

Cannabis company Common Citizen will hold an outdoor job fair from noon to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17, and Friday, Sept. 18, for various positions at its new Hazel Park store, located at 877 E. 8 Mile Road.

Common Citizen is looking to hire up to 15 budtenders at the Hazel Park location. Budtenders “help educate customers about the benefits of safe cannabis use and recommend safe, high-quality cannabis products that serve the individual needs of every customer,” according to a statement.

The store is scheduled to open in mid-October.

The job fair, according to a release, will take place in three tents outside the Hazel Park store on both days. All Common Citizen team members and applicants will be required to wear masks and maintain a safe social distance before and during the interview process.

“The City of Hazel Park has welcomed Common Citizen with open arms, and we are proud to create jobs and help improve the local economy in this vibrant community during these challenging economic times,” Michael Elias, Common Citizen CEO, said in a statement. “Our Hazel Park job fair will be a critical step toward expanding our highly qualified Common Citizen team in Hazel Park and beyond while maintaining our commitment to the safety, health and well-being of our customers, employees, future team members and our communities.”
