Teaching Web2 talent how to pivot and align their profiles for Web3
NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Up Top Search, the market leaders in recruiting for Web3, in partnership with Faris Oweis, Head of Consumer Applications at Eclipse, announce their official launch of Placement Labs, a crypto career bootcamp, with their first cohort of 25 students.
"Despite the down market, there is still an excess of highly skilled, motivated, and qualified talent coming out of Traditional Finance, FAANG companies, and fintech startups that are aggressively searching for their first role in crypto," says Dan Eskow, Founder of Up Top.
Placement Labs will provide students a framework to understand the overall web3 landscape and break down the nuanced differences between the various segments of the market. Over the course of 3 weeks, Dan and Faris will provide insights into what each sector indexes towards for hiring criteria and share examples of how they have helped people from various backgrounds, industries, and skillsets make the transition to land their first job in the space.
Dan and Faris will also utilize their networks to bring in Founders, Builders, Investors, and Community Members to participate in teaching the class, and give students the opportunity to engage in conversation with legitimate professionals actively working in the fields they are interested in.
"Through our work with seed stage crypto companies that are raising their first round, we have developed strong pattern recognition on what types of talent are most in-demand to set those projects up for success. I'm 100% convinced a lot of that talent will be non-crypto native professionals, as crypto is poised to reach mainstream consumer audiences." Oweis says.
Graduates of Placement Labs will leave with a clear understanding of where they fit within the greater crypto landscape, action items on how to pivot their profiles to match their ideal roles, and a jumpstart in building out their network of people that can help them achieve their goals.
