I recently had a chat with some chads from @Unidentified. 🛸 about jobs in web3, so I wanted to share some of my experience and advice, hopefully, it’s of use to you out there. This is my personal approach and experience, keep that in mind :).

Web3 does offer TONS of opportunities to work from home in your favourite Attack on Titan pyjamas, whether as Discord mod, community manager, project manager, operations manager, marketing, dev, programmer, top management roles, etc.
But it *might* also come with a cost: rugs, toxicity, overwork, companies being clownfiestas etc. What you need to ask yourself first is: are you fine with that? Are you ready for that? Companies (and founders) are young. Now that we have that out of the way, you must identify:
- What is your niche? - What is your skillset? - What sets you apart from all the persons who are looking for that sweet web3 money and tokens? Your edge in a nutshell. - Relevant experience and how it translates (See below)
If you come from web2, look for your translatable skills: writing, analytical skills, data, research, coding, finance, marketing, community, etc. Yes, lots of similarities between web2 & web3 - but you have to find how to utilize them perfectly in this new/evolved market.
To give an example; doing community in web2 gaming is a different beast from web3 gaming - agreed. However, what you have to find is: what can be used from web2? Trust me, not everything is to be thrown in the bin despite people yelling that muh WeB3 iS DifFeRenT. Fuck the noise.
However, these skills are aplenty, and you're not alone in this PvP (job)market, so you must identify your edge at all costs, and hone it, as I said above.
Companies + their network Careers pages, some examples: boards.greenhouse.io/nansen
polygon.technology/careers coinbase.com/careers binance.com/en/careers/job… angel.co/company/optimi… kraken.com/careers Other excellent sources: Twitter + Discord + Telegram of protocols/projects you like. Slide in members DMs, be active, and as a general rule of thumb: be kind.
Without going into full motivational speaker bullshit: some roles won't be pixel-perfect for your liking, some jobs will be overpaid, some underpaid, some will be amazing, etc. All that matters is that you find what works for you and don't burn yourself.
As for your resume, please make it relevant for the job - don't spray and pray. It has to show your relevant experience at a glance. Include a portfolio, references etc. If you need help, I can help review it with my meager experience.
If you liked this thread, please give the first tweet a like and retweet - it's thanksgiving after all. Thanks a lot for your attention - happy holidays! Ahri twitter.com/0xAhri/status/…
