Over the last few months, we’ve seen more and more AV firms start bringing back furloughed workers, and even some that have started outright hiring again. While this is generally a good sign, it doesn’t mean that there won’t still be that classic problem we’ve reported on time and time again: a lack of young people who are willing to learn and become the next generation of AV professionals.
And it’s not just AV integration firms who are having trouble finding talent: product manufacturers are in need, too.
On Episode 130 of AV+…
- I recently spoke with Adam Bowers and TR Hoffman – two millennials who are starting their tech careers at MSE Audio, as well as their manager Ken Hecht – about what drew each of them to the tech solutions industry and what it takes to have a fulfilling career in this space.

The Commercial Integrator Podcast
The phrase ‘pro AV’ doesn’t do justice to all of the integration crowd, so we at Commercial Integrator wanted to create a podcast that speaks to all of those areas (and more!) under the umbrella of commercial tech integration.
The host, web editor Adam Forziati, has a background in radio and is looking forward to providing listeners with an entertaining, informative audio forum for all topics affecting the industry.
Podcast Release Schedule
We plan to release a shorter, single-topic episode once every week or two on Fridays (just like this episode). But at the end of each month, we’ll also drop a longer, in-depth episode of the AV podcast with features like Editor’s Desk, CI Monthly News Spotlight, CI’s Project of the Month, and more.
We hope you’ll share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #AVPlusPod !
