A change of trust
There is now a Gold Rush for blockchain skills
There are two key motivators behind businesses’ desire to hire.
So, if you want to take advantage of these opportunities, how can you do it?
- Get your hands dirty: if you are not in the Blockchain technology field now, do your own research and find out what technologies are being used by leaders in the field. Consider what programming languages you could usefully learn, what frameworks are relevant to Blockchain builds as all of those skills are relevant attributes that employers are looking for.
- Broaden your experience – you need to be a dualist: The people getting hired are the people that see both sides, says Ben. Hiring managers want employees that see a Blockchain business someone as having both the technology component and a commercial benefit. A single individual with those things, is even more important than a person with specific Blockchain project experience, according to Green.
- Meet Up with and network alongside others who feel as passionately as you do about the subject: There are some great meet up groups such as Bocky Poobah’s Ethereum Dev group where people can talk tech and meet others who share the same interests. Exposure to these people and these ideas will keep you on the front foot, demonstrate to potential employers you have a genuine interest and introduce you to valuable contacts who could help you get a job in the area.
- Get involved in Open source Projects: Finally, involvement in any sort of Blockchain related Open Sourced project is a real differentiator for candidates. Open sourced solutions assist in setting the standards for the industry.
