My experience at GreenLight was invaluable. I enjoyed working in a challenging environment that pushed me to produce my best work. The skills I gained were a fantastic introduction to the world of cannabis consulting, and the mutual respect that every member of the team shares is a rare thing to find in the workplace.
From day 1 of my internship, GreenLight was asking for me to speak up when I saw something that would be beneficial or something that could be improved. It was new to me to see that no matter the title, every voice was heard in company meetings. By hearing new ideas and building off of each other, some amazing things have been created.
I have gained so much knowledge throughout this internship. I’ve learned how to work in a fast paced environment, while still being organized and showing attention to detail. I have truly felt like my voice and suggestions are heard. The saying you learn something new every day genuinely fits with this internship experience.
Our Internship Program
Our training program encompasses a well-rounded understanding of how to become properly licensed for a cannabis business in Massachusetts, everything that goes into running a successful business, and real hands-on experience in the field.
Our interns work under the direct supervision of our Internship Coordinator with weekly individual assignments as well as team projects. Interns observe client meetings, help solve day-to-day problems, as well as create future programs and events. Interns can expect 10-15 hours of work a week including team meetings.
Our Internship Program is highly selective with the individual time and resources of our executive team dedicated to each intern’s success. At GreenLight Business Solutions, we focus on making sure interns get the resources they need, the experience needed for jobs in the cannabis industry or outside, and something all interns will benefit from no matter their major or area of focus. We have had interns from various fields such as media majors, art majors, law school students, etc. We strive to create and maintain an internship program that will be mutually beneficial to everyone involved.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis with selective intern classes every semester.
During my internship at GreenLight Business Solutions I learned more than I could’ve imagined from an industry that is so upcoming and new to many people. I gained so much knowledge and understanding of the cannabis business industry, and it was so rewarding to learn about. From the start of my internship, I was welcomed by all the employees and knew I was in the right place from the start. At GreenLight Business solutions they always say there are never too many questions to ask, and this is definitely true. They are open to our questions and creativity and help us become our best selves. Interns were able to learn off of each other, and project coordinators were there to learn from.
GreenLight is an opportunity to dive head first into the world of cannabis business planning, licensing, and strategizing. As interns, we have the chance to work directly with clients, strategize with the executive team, research and speak with community members, and even work on licensing documents first hand. There is not another internship that allows that level of close, hands-on work, and by doing so GreenLight provides an opportunity for education by immersion in this young and vital field.
