Virtual Reality is on the rise, and with it the demand for VR-related jobs. In times of rapid development of machine learning and artificial intelligence, it might not be foolish to consider a job in this young but booming industry.
Today, the AR/VR market is estimated at 11bn dollars. This market is estimated to grow to a whopping 216bn dollar by 2021. At the moment, especially specialised programmers and people that possess 3D modelling skills are in high demand, but as this market spreads across industries and adoption grows, there are bound to be many more opportunities to work a VR/AR job.
So, if you don’t want to wait around for a universal basic income, it might be wise to consider a career in the wonderful world or augmented and virtual reality.
