Looking For a Job Change? 3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Blockchain.

Change Ahead

Your current job sucks, you are bored as hell with it or are just looking for a change in your work life.

You have come to the right place! With the rising era of Blockchain, a paradigm shift in technology is on its way! It’s time for a change, a change that may define the rest your life. I am quite sure that you have heard about it before, but now it’s the time to get serious about it.

Today getting a job in blockchain sector is much easier than ever before or what it will probably ever be.

So, if you are looking for a job change then this is the best time to switch to blockchain. It doesn’t matter what you are doing now because almost every industry is/will move to blockchain sooner or later.

The thing you have to worry about is “What are you doing about it ?”

This article is not about convincing you to leave your job and jump into the blockchain, but it’s about analyzing where the world is heading. It’s about giving yourself a headstart for your next few years. So, giving you an overview, these are the 3 reasons why you should consider jumping into the blockchain boat ASAP.

1. It’s new, and it’s Here To Stay

From the startups to the giants all see the same future.

The blockchain is fairly new.

So, you will see a lot of blockchain startups emerging every day and getting heavily funded. But what is interesting to see is that almost every giant is also moving into blockchain. IBM, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, you name them.

That clearly says that the blockchain is here to stay.

2. Scarcity of people in blockchain domain, hence a high pay

You can get a lot of attention in this sector even with a year of experience.

As this sector is fairly new, not a lot of people are in it right now.

And the demand is damn high.

Recruiters are hunting blockchain enthusiasts all over the internet. If you don’t believe me, just add blockchain related words in your bio and see the magic!

I personally started blockchain development a year before as a college kid (I am still in college), and today I receive plenty of jobs offers even if I don’t want them.

Instead I give jobs to people, in my own blockchain startup.

3. Almost anyone can jump into the blockchain boat.

No matter what you are now, marketer, environmentalist, writer, banker, lawyer, teacher, software developer etc. all have a seat in the blockchain boat.

You may think that blockchain is just for techies.

Nope. It’s for all.

And the best part is that you can get leverage in blockchain world using your existing domain’s knowledge.

Every blockchain project needs marketing, a writer for writing about their project, lawyers to analyze and deal with laws of their respective country/state. And as blockchain is being explored in every possible sector, recruiters need people who have knowledge in that domain.

So no matter who you are now, people are out there looking for you.

This is a revolution. You are lucky to be alive at this time. It’s a wave that comes once in many decades, it’s like the whole internet is being built again. Just the difference is that we are connected to each other in a better way today.

So, don’t miss this chance. As Steve Jobs said:

“You can’t connect the dots looking forwards, you can only connect them looking backwards. So, you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in future. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road, will give you the confidence to follow you heart, even if it leads you off the well known path. And that will make all the difference.”
