The nascent nature of the Web 3.0 landscape, along with the complexity of technical expertise involved in cryptocurrency and blockchain-related jobs, makes it hard for a bulk of corporations to find the right talent. On the other hand, Web 3.0 professionals likewise have difficulty looking for new doors on mainstream job platforms designed mainly for Web2 careers. Even when there is an ideal match for a company and talent, the remote-focused work expectations of the post-pandemic era create a bottleneck for the traditional recruiter-candidate onboarding process.
The most recent participant of Cointelegraph Accelerator, the startup booster leveraging Cointelegraph’s media capabilities, Intropia is an introduction-based Web 3.0 talent ecological system that utilizes the community-centric nature of Web 3.0 to solve the talent bottleneck threatening the expansion of the industry. To get a clear profile of the present Web 3.0 talent, Intropia conducted the Web 3.0 Talent Survey with the contribution of over 1,500 Web 3.0 professionals. The survey showed that the Web 3.0 ecological system boasts a diverse range of talent, from coding specialists to hardcore traders, who mostly prefer remote or freelance jobs and want to use pseudonyms. The vast bulk of the respondents (80%) are working on plenty of projects simultaneously, having one main job and freelancing for plenty of others.
All in all, the average Web 3.0 talent would have a hard time filling a job app inside the traditional business world, as a CV with “Web3Nakamoto” in the name section would hardly receive a suitable review. That’s why Intropia focuses only on professional capabilities instead and helps Web 3.0 talent find the following gig according to their past experience.
The introduction dynamic of Intropia turns the whole ecological system of participants into potential recruiters. Web 3.0 users can refer a friend, a colleague or someone from their network for a job opening to contribute to finding the ideal talent — monetizing their professional network in the procedure, by receiving a portion of the recruitment fee from the Intropia platform. This way, even if the ideal candidates miss a specific job posting, someone from their network can see it and refer them to the job, helping the Web 3.0 talent pool grow in a sustainable way.
Professionals can create their Web3-friendly profile on Intropia and seek new doors in a gamified environment, while Web 3.0 projects can post detailed job descriptions to grab the attention of new talent.
Launched in early 2023, the Cointelegraph Accelerator Program utilizes Cointelegraph’s leading position in the media landscape and established worldwide audience to assist promising Web 3.0 corporations reach their full potential.
