2015 BIZ: PEOPLE: Jobs from the virtual world. Virtual Lisbon, AvaHyr, Job world (SL), etc

Jobs from the virtual world: Virtual Lisbon, 
AvaHyr, Job world (SL), Virtual Lisbon, etc. 
Updated 9/28/2015
Virtual worlds generate jobs:  builders, musicians, event managers, video producers, customer relations, designers, photographers, scripters, teachers, animators, translators, writers/editors, marketers, etc.  That creates a need for a job mart to help employers find people to do the jobs and to help skilled people find a job.

    In the outworld

    • The outworld (opposite of inworld) has a lot more people and jobs.
    You have been in virtual worlds for a while.  You have learned your way around the web.   If you want work, you don't have to limit yourself to jobs in the virtual world.  There are people going to school to learn what you already know.  They are being taught by instructors who probably don't know half of what you know.  When they finish a 3 month course, they will probably have less than 10 percent of the experience you have had.  (30 months is 2.5 years. How long have you been in virtual worlds?)

    Disclaimer: I have not done business with this company and have no direct basis for an opinion on their legitimacy.   The logic is "You want people that know how to use the web, look for them in the metaverse."  That is sound logic, as those of us people of the metaverse know.
