Cryptocurrencies have captured the attention of the world with the amazing gains they offer. They have created newly minted millionaires. There is also talk about the recent sell-off in Bitcoin and the volatility associated with buying digital assets. However, not a lot of people talk about the need for top talent in the field.
The job market in the United States has come back to life. From small-sized restaurants to investment banks, all businesses are in a war for talent. Companies are unable to find enough suitable workers who can satiate their needs and keep up with the demands of the customer. This lack of talent is very problematic in the field of turbo-charged crypto. The exchanges require highly specialized professionals like software engineers, legal, compliance, marketing, risk management, sales, and hiring personnel for managing and scaling the businesses. These professionals will also be dealing with the anticipatory government oversight and tighter regulations.
Crypto firms have thousands of open positions all across the globe but are not able to find appropriately skilled candidates. This sector is facing several challenges while recruiting people. Because it is an emerging area, there are not many job seekers who have 5 to 10 years of relevant working experience. Also, even though some people are enamored with the field, there are several potential candidates who don’t want to work in the crypto field. They are worried about the safety of their careers in this unknown field and want to pursue traditional roles.
