Multimedia Sound Workers

The U.S. Department of Labor does not provide information specifically about multimedia sound workers. It does, however, discuss multimedia artists and animators, for which slower than average employment growth is expected through 2022. 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 keen. Sound workers who have a combined knowledge of sound design and composition and/or musical abilities will have good employment prospects in the coming years. 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.
