If anyone says "there are no jobs that require Rust", they've obviously not looked that recently - there are lots that mention it (if not outright ask for it).
I think we're now entering the honeymoon period of "we have to rewrite everything in $shiny_new_language because $some_advantage !!111" that Go had a few years ago.
In the case of Rust, there seem to be some genuinely compelling cases for using it. Just being statically typed isn't enough (Go is also statically typed) - but lack of GC and memory safety enforcement at compile time, plus significant performance improvements over (for example) Python in most use cases might tip the scales.
