At the moment we are enjoying the dividends brought by the Internet era, and at the same time its development speed is gradually slowing down. The industry seems to be in desperate need of a new opportunity to push the Internet to a higher level. The arrival of the “Metaverse” concept provides a new development path for Internet companies. The social network giant FaceBook changed its name to “Meta” and announced a full exploration of the Metaverse. The concept of “Metaverse” spread all over the world overnight and became a hot topic now.

As a cutting-edge technology Metaverse is an opportunity that Internet giants cannot miss, but the market and resources are limited. If they want to occupy a place, competition is inevitable. Among them, talent competition may be the key. Long before Meta’s name was changed, it was announced that it would create 10,000 high-paying jobs within the European Union to help establish Metaverse; after the official name change, it announced that it would provide employment opportunities for millions of creators and developers.

At present, Internet giants have started the competition mode of Metaverse talents “grabbing”.

Engineers can receive up to US$180,000 in stock awards. These bonuses will It is issued in the form of restricted stock, and the vesting time is four years, which also means that once the award is accepted, it will remain in Apple within the last four years.
