Bloom Farms™, a San Francisco based medical cannabis company, will present its fourth SF Bay Area Cannabis Career & Job Fair, Sunday, April 10, at City Nights, 715 Harrison St, San Francisco, from 12 pm - 4 pm PT.

“The last SF Bay Area Cannabis Career and Job Fair in July helped hundreds of job seekers take their first step toward a new career in the medical cannabis industry," said Bloom Farms Director Michael Ray. "This will be our fourth industry specific career fair for cannabis job seekers.

"This career fair represents a shift in the way people view the medical cannabis industry," Ray said. "We’re chipping away at the negative social stigma that exists around marijuana by helping great job candidates find great companies to work for.”

“Bloom Farms’ Cannabis Career and Job Fair is one of the only recruiting events that truly caters to the cannabis industry,” said Harborside Health Center HR Recruiter Mistie Jung. “Since participating in the last two fairs, we’ve hired four qualified and quality applicants to our team.”

Last year’s event hosted 1,800 attendees, including 26 employers that hired 125 workers, according to Bloom Farms. This year’s event is expected to be even bigger.

"This will be an opportunity for those who are just getting started in their professional careers to find actionable advice from medical cannabis industry experts," reads a March 30 press release from Bloom Farms. "In an effort to support motivated job seekers the Bloom Farms team will also host a resume workshop the week prior; space is limited."

Bloom Farms™, a San Francisco based medical cannabis company, has partnered with Magnolia Wellness, an Oakland dispensary, and raised $25,000 this past holiday season for Calaveras County Butte fire relief efforts.

On Friday, March 4, Bloom Farms Director Michael Ray made the donation at The Resource Connection in San Andreas to the following organizations focused on post-event recovery and supporting affiliated local nonprofits:
• Mountain Ranch Fire Relief Fund ($10,000 to support individual and emergency family needs)
• CalaverasGROWN ($5,000 to support soil erosion prevention efforts)
• Mountain Ranch Resource Center ($5,000 to support local community feeding program)
• The Resource Connection ($5,000 to support countywide food insecurity efforts)

The Valley and Butte fires of 2015 were two of the most destructive blazes in California history and were declared federal disasters by President Obama. Californians are already forgetting the devastation created by the fires, but with the cold, wet winter months, many people in rural Calaveras County still need help.

Bloom Farms and Magnolia Wellness worked together to raise $25,000 this past holiday season for fire relief. Bloom Farms provided its HIGHLIGHTER™ cannabis vapor pens to Magnolia Wellness free of charge.
