Multimedia Sound Workers
Although the use of sound in computer and video games is growing in importance, sound workers still make up a very small portion of professionals in the game industry. As a result, competition for jobs in the game industry is very strong. Sound workers who have a combined knowledge of sound design and composition and/or musical abilities will have very good employment prospects over the next decade. The rarest breed of sound worker is the professional who has expertise in both sound and game programming. Demand for these specialized workers will be especially strong over the next decade.
