Revealed: Interest in Metaverse jobs up 900%
In a mere 6 months, the metaverse has rocketed from a barely-known concept to the subject of endless opinion, explanations and debates.
Ipsos Mori defines the Metaverse as “a virtual, computer-generated world where people can socialize, work and play.” While only 16% of Americans could accurately define the metaverse in early 2022, 42% are now familiar with the general concept.
Based on a survey of more than 31,000 workers, the Bankless Times studied Metaverse interests and attitudes. The massive increase of 938% in Google searches for metaverse jobs is indicative of 84% of people who said they would be working in the Metaverse.
Metaverse jobs include:
- Jobs to design, build and maintain Metaverse infrastructure.
- Existing jobs – from marketers to lawyers, customer service agents to retailers – transitioning to making the Metaverse an active part of their working lives. There will be more meetings, team socializing, conferences and work trips conducted by avatars. Metaverse-enabled shopping will explode as virtual storerooms become the norm.
