The 3 main signs that Metaverse was created for mothers
Metaverse, with virtual options and endless possibilities, is created for mothers.
Refusing to disappoint in words and phrases, Metaverse is the tech industry’s latest descriptor for interconnecting all things.
Including the ambiguous and complex, according to The Wired, Metaverse, “does not actually refer to any specific type of technology, but rather a broad (and often speculative) change in the way we interact with technology.”
In the end, the way we all interact with technology continues to thrive and improve. Every improvement and new step forward requires a lot of effort behind the scenes. Therefore, associated with the endless process of continuous technology improvement is an opportunity.
Opportunities for mothers who want to grow in their current careers, mothers who re-enter the workforce after schooling in pandemic homes (or even nearly two decades of raising children!), Mothers as new empty nests, suddenly terrified of home their most empty so far.
Mothers will always need more than Metaverse, but surely today’s tech-driven Metaverse industry is ready for more moms.
How do we understand this?
Jobs are there, waiting!
All the jobs in information technology (IT) lost during the pandemic have now been recovered and employment continues to grow. According to Computerworld, the unemployment rate for technology professions is 1.3%, its lowest level since June 2019 and about a third of the current national unemployment rate (3.6%). Meanwhile, there are over 400,000 job opportunities in technology posted since March 2022.
It is important to recognize that in many technology companies, more than half of all employment positions are in fact non-technical in nature. Do not count yourself out of the payments and benefits of tech companies too quickly.
Feel inspired but a little nervous to consider technology?
The return of the technology industry to the focus of the user experience expanded the traditional search criteria for many IT-related positions. Now more than ever, seemingly non-technical people can enter with strong communication, testing and documentation skills. Whatever a mother has done in her “past life” is more likely to apply to today’s Metaverse.
And once you are inside, if you prove valuable through projects or relationship building on operational lines, there is no better field to work in to provide training and hands-on experience in areas of interest. If you identify an attractive technology path, you are more likely to register quickly to help raise your skills to their next level.
Once you log in, how different is the technology compared to traditional industries? Rhythm, expectations, survival? Everything just better than ever!
Good welcome times
While mothers surely know their way around the worst types of vacations, tech executives embrace vacations as positive. Need some time to regroup? Take a break. Do you have a sick child at home who needs a ‘Mom TLC’? Go virtually as needed. Want to take your family to a local amusement park for the weekend? Do it. Are family dinners a priority in your family? Enjoy.
Technology has changed over the last two decades. With more and more systems and solutions shifting to the cloud computing, overtime has faded to a degree of near non-existence in most technological environments. Vacation evenings and weekends are a norm. The ability to get back to virtual is not only feasible, but it has recently been proven worldwide that many work longer and more from home than when they are in the physical workplace.
Technology is not only family friendly these days, it is often family first. Tech schedules are practically made for moms.
Jobs available? Check. Ability to learn new skills? Check. Family friendly? Check.
According to a Skillsoft 2021 report, 91% of women in technology express satisfaction with their work. Technology should be a strong competitor for any mother looking to return to the job market or make an orientation from their current position. And with 400,000 technology jobs of various disciplines and levels posted at the moment, it is clear that Metaverse and more need mothers today.
