The U.S. Depart of Labor reported yesterday that last month, animation industry employers posted 3,800 really cool job openings, though only 17 were for paid positions. That number was virtually unchanged from March, when employers posted 3,640 new cool jobs of which only 19 were paid.
Government analysts again reported that the unusually large disparity between the number of new jobs “created” and the number of new jobs created where employees would actually “earn money” was the result of the ongoing animation industry trend to treat a job’s “coolness” as compensation somehow more valuable than money. “Get your name out there,” “work on really amazing projects” and “be part of a really awesome team of artists” remained the top 3 forms of compensation mentioned on April job postings.
