Meta seems to be leading the pack, according to Business Insider, with 103 metaverse-specific job listings on its website. In late 2021, Facebook had issued a press release stating it was looking to hire 10,000 people in Europe over the next five years for metaverse-specific job roles.

Many of the jobs in the metaverse will be for highly skilled individuals, including engineers and developers who can build groundbreaking metaverse infrastructure and new technologies. Other roles will involve content creation, including designing and placing ads. Of course, the metaverse will also require executives, managers, and people to fill strategic roles, just as organizations do in the real world. Since many companies, including Meta, are viewing metaverse activities as a separate branch of their company, they will need accountants, finance officers, marketing executives, project managers and more.
