How to get a job in 3D: The job hunt for 3D artists
3D artist vacancy has become one of the hottest recruiting topics for recruiters as companies look to fill a growing market in 3d animation, visual effects and other applications.
According to a report from market research firm Euromonitor International, demand for 3d artists and animators has risen by 12% in the past 12 months to reach $13.8 billion in 2020, a 12% increase over the same period last year.
The report found the average number of openings per job is now 9.6 per year, up from 6.8 last year and a 6.6 average in 2015.
The rise has come amid a major surge in demand for these skilled artists and compositors, particularly in the U.S. and Europe.
to the report, a typical job opening for a 3D animation studio requires a degree in digital painting, design, art history, architecture, computer science or other related discipline.
A bachelor’s degree is a common requirement for many jobs in the 3D industry, which is the most popular medium for digital animation, according to the firm.
The job market for 3DS artists and other artists in the field is also changing.
According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, only a quarter of U.K.-based 3D-artist openings were for traditional painting jobs, while a similar percentage of jobs for digital artists were for digital-effects jobs.
Pew also noted that fewer than 10% of the jobs for 3rd party developers were filled for artists.
The latest job openings for 3ds artists, however, are a mixed bag.
In addition to traditional painting, 3d artist vacancies also include painting and drawing, with about 30% of jobs offered in these fields for artists with a master’s degree or higher, according the report.
But, even with such a high percentage of available positions, only 8% of 3d-artist vacancies are currently filled for this type of work, the report said.
Many of the artists that are available for these jobs are already working in their fields, as the industry has grown exponentially in recent years.
The number of 3D jobs in this industry has more than doubled since 2008, according an analyst with Euromonitors.
According, the number of digital artists has doubled since 2009.
According the report for the same year, digital-animation has also grown by 13% in that same time period.
In 2020, the total number of software-based 3d animators employed in the UK was 4.3 million, up about 13% from 2.6 million in 2020.
While there has been a rise in the number and size of software companies, many of these companies have struggled financially, and many are looking to cut costs.
The trend is also not limited to software companies.
A recent report by the Financial Times said that many 3D companies have been struggling for years to attract employees, due to a shortage of skilled workers, as well as high unemployment rates.
The Financial Times also noted a growing number of companies are also looking to sell off assets and turn their businesses around.
For example, 3D printing is expected to grow in the next five years, according Euromoncer.
Despite the increasing demand for skilled workers in the industry, however: “there is a clear lack of qualified candidates,” said the report from Euromoniter.
