MCA focuses on the professional development & technical training of minorities & disenfranchised communities impacted by the “War on Drugs”, who are interested in becoming cannabis industry professionals. EzHire Cannabis is a technology platform that enables candidates to create comprehensive profiles & be put front & center with prospective employers.
For EzHire, this partnership comes on the heels of last month’s announced partnership with MassCultivatED in Massachusetts. CEO Jacob Carlson added, “We are looking forward to growing the future of cannabis in New Jersey with our partners at MCA. Diversity & Inclusion are the pillars of our brand & finding partners like MCA to fulfill that mission is critical to our success.”
With over 40,000 new jobs expected in New Jersey from the legal cannabis industry in the next 12-18 months, the timing of this partnership is critical to ensuring the skills MCA gives candidates translate to jobs in the industry. Per Carlson, “MCA’s program is intense & designed to make sure graduates know the realities of working in cannabis. Our job as the technology partner is to make it easy for employers to find & hire remarkable and diverse talent.”
As part of the partnership, those who complete MCA’s comprehensive workforce development courses will be set up with profiles on the EzHire Cannabis platform & presented to employers at various Multi-State Operators including such as Columbia Care aka Cannabist, who recently became an ongoing sponsor of the Minority Cannabis Academy.
MCA Co-Founder and President, Brendon Robinson added, “Partnering with EzHire Cannabis will enable us to create an ecosystem for the students that are enrolling in our program. Job placement is at the forefront of our organizational goals and EzHire Cannabis is the perfect partner to help streamline this process.”
