Facebook, owned by Meta, copyrighted the name at the earliest chance, and now it’s paying out. CEO Mark Zuckerberg tends to predict future tech and the name acquisition is something we can’t overlook. Jobs are surging in the Metaverse. And every time we talk about Metaverse, “Meta”, copyrighted by Zuck, comes to our mind. One of the greatest marketing foresights in recent times.
Since October 2021, job listings on Metaverse increased 379 per cent. Somehow, if we could translate that number into the stock market, it quickly makes up the Fortune 1000 list. Job search engine Adzuna recently published a report containing the surge of job listings in the Metaverse.
Cryptocurrency remains the primary method of transaction in the Metaverse. With the rapid growth in crypto interest, companies are hiring people in large numbers to adjust to the portfolio. Aduna’s Head of data science, James Neave, talked about Metaverse hiring as it “is the latest recruitment trend to show exponential growth.”
People who missed out on being a millionaire or billionaires by not purchasing stocks at the birth of the internet are the same people promoting the idea of the Metaverse boom. They are the largest per cent; the rests are wealthy entrepreneurs and tech company CEOs.
Even though we can see a great field of opportunities in healthcare, finance, engineering, aviation, development and plenty more, it is still questionable. Why shouldn’t it be? We cannot see the future; we just hope for change for the better.
Let’s go back to the stats. A record number of job listings were found in February 2022. Over 5,302 are related to crypto and another 64,659 listing for cybersecurity. In the Metaverse, we could see several job listings. They include information technology experts, creative & design, advertisement & marketing, public relations, engineering and sales.
The fancy name for Metaverse is Web 2.0. Web 2.0 is growing in popularity, and people started collecting digital goodies as startup seed funding. Smaller percentages worldwide make up for multiple revenue streams. Companies that have the resources, will not miss out on the opportunity.
Brands are on the lookout for young demographics of customers that will buy services today and tomorrow. It is the key to long term sustainability and successful marketing. Metaverse investing includes purchasing and selling NFT.
Non-fungible tokens (NFT) did not appear overnight, but their presence was alive with the digital goodies. People did not realise that something limited to digital value could be significant.
Hence it became another billion-dollar industry with promotions from the most prominent athletes, entrepreneurs, etc. Companies are milking the same idea of buying and selling NFT for physical products.
The first listing created for Metaverse was in April 2019. These positions gained momentum in recent months. Companies increase their marketing budgets, doing online surveys and promotions to get people interested.
Market growth is only possible when a sustainable economy is present. It shall contain the demand for the product, people wanting it, supply chain, quality, stability, long-term potential and many more.
Roles in crypto and cybersecurity are growing side by side. Even though cybersecurity demand remains phenomenally broader, the crypto train is catching up. AR and VR sectors will benefit fully when Metaverse products are available for individual users. At the moment, affordability is not quite there yet. Hence it hasn’t reached its true potential.
Like the job-hunting process in the corporate world, networking events, collective roles remain the same in Metaverse. According to the same research we discussed earlier, Adzuna said top openings remain for UI (user interface), UX (user experience), writers, data scientists, and cybersecurity experts.
