Gazette Premium Content Denver job fair being held for marijuana industry

DENVER — The first applicants arrived five hours early and by the time the marijuana industry job fair opened in Denver, the line stretched for two blocks.

Organizers say they heard beforehand from more than 600 job seekers who planned to attend the Thursday event. Many more are likely to come during the all-day job fair, judging from the number of people in line who say they only heard about it in the past few days.

O.penVAPE, which makes vaporizers and other devices, organized the fair to meet its own growing staffing needs and help others in the industry. O.penVAPE spokesman Todd Mitchem says the company may need a venue bigger than its central Denver headquarters for the next fair, which he says is already being planned.
