Finding qualified AV professionals for contract or full-time work just got easier, according to AV Junction, which announces its free online platform for the audiovisual industry.
The platform, which can be found here, aims to help integration firms find qualified help while adding AV professionals in their quests to find work.
AV Junction founder and CEO Paul Weatherhead says the new online platform provides companies with instant access to pre-vetted AV professionals while simultaneously helping industry pros to find new employment opportunities, adding that it’s the industry’s first dedicated online marketplace of its kind.
“AV Junction enables AV companies to search for and connect with qualified AV Professionals on a project-to-project or fulltime basis, from anywhere in the world,” Weatherhead says.
“AV companies can post jobs, instantly receive matches, search a vast worldwide database of AV Pros, and send direct messages. All without a middleman and associated fees.”
Industry AV Pros can easily search for and even apply to relevant jobs based on skill, sector and job type, according to a press release.
Born Out of First-Hand AV Recruiting Experience
AV Junction is a solution built to address all of the issues that currently plague AV operations departments that are tasked to find and hire and AV Pros, according to Weatherhead. As the former VP of operations at integration firm Advanced, he experienced how difficult securing AV Pros and navigating a long-distance employment relationship could be for everyone involved.
“I realized that there was no good solution for finding AV Pros. It was basically through non-industry platforms or via a middleman.” he says. “Likewise, there is no AV-specific job platform for AV Pros to refer to when looking for work. I knew there was a better way to connect companies and AV Pros all over the world.”
