David from Oak Network: "Bring your Web2 skills to Web3."
A great way to start is to simply get involved (e.g. start helping in Discords). You don't have to start big, the crypto space is very friendly!
Also, a lot of Web2 skills are needed in Web3 (e.g. marketing, growth, biz dev, etc.) and a lot of the current Web2 skills are transferable to Web3.

Wanna work in the Web3 space?
The crypto space is developing fast and there's a high need for all kinds of talent, from developers to marketing and pretty much everything in between.
Don't be afraid if you don't have Web3 experience. A lot of the people who start working for Web3 projects don't have it either!
What is important is that you're a fast learner. It's a young space and it's moving fast. Few people really know "everything" about crypto anyways, so what is important is that you are adaptable, willing to learn and that you can think outside of the box.
You can join a DAO and contribute there to get noticed, or reach out to the founding team and propose how you can help the project! The easiest way though is to apply for an open position, like the ones we have at SubQuery: SubQuery jobs.

Wanna create a Web3 project?
Don't forget about the value of quality education. Join our Hero course! This course is designed to get a developer from knowing nothing about SubQuery to developing subqueries, deploying them in Subquery Projects, and building a simple front end app to interact with the project.
You already have a great project in mind but need funding? Check out our Grants Programme! The SubQuery Grants Programme is here to incubate and accelerate the next generation of builders with funding and support.
Let us give you the tools you need to kickstart your project and take it to the next level! Receive non-dilutive funding (up to a total of $30k) to accelerate the development of your new idea.
SubQuery is a blockchain developer toolkit facilitating the construction of Web3 applications of the future. A SubQuery project is a complete API to organise and query data from Layer-1 chains. Currently servicing Polkadot, Substrate, Avalanche, Terra, and Cosmos (starting with Juno) projects, this data-as-a-service allows developers to focus on their core use case and front-end without wasting time building a custom backend for data processing activities. In the future, the SubQuery Network intends to replicate this scalable and reliable solution in a completely decentralised manner.
