VR/AR industry is booming – but finding the right candidate is limited

There are currently almost 700 virtual reality startups worldwide, from companies focusing on building virtual limbs, self-driving cars and 3-D immersive cameras, to drone technologies and wearable tech for gaming. And yet for these companies finding the right talent can be a struggle.

The VR/AR landscape is constantly changing and evolving, with companies, now more than ever, seeking the right candidates to be part of their team. Job postings for specific skills within this industry has increased 1314% while job searches have increased by 951.89%. The demand is booming but the people to fill in these new positions are thin, which doesn’t come as a surprise considering the industry is relatively new and requires a much more specific talent. 

This is why at TechNET Immersive we have taken extra steps in building relationships and networking with key players such as Fundamental VR, Melody VR, Didimo, Solar Flare Studios and many more, giving us greater insight into the needs and demands these companies face as they continue to expand/branch into VR/AR. Having this understanding has helped us find them the right talent and candidates who are looking to join their team. 

With demands still being high, people looking to get a job in this industry have the upper hand when it comes to negotiating your role and position within the company.

The augmented and virtual reality market amounted to a forecast of 18.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2020 and is expected to expand drastically in the coming years, potentially generating $285 billion by 2023.
