Does a career in the Audio/Video industry interest you? Think back to the last time you went somewhere and truly had an amazing experience... there is a good chance that it had to do with the A/V technology in use at the venue. It's a growing market and, there are more job opportunities than ever before. What does it mean to work in this industry? It's more than professional sound systems for concert venues. It also includes projection systems for classrooms and conference room systems for meeting spaces; audiovisual technology is woven into every organization, at every level. Here's a quick look at some employment-related industry highlights should you be considering an opportunity in this exciting field.
Serious Market Growth
At the end of 2019, the international trade association, AVIXA, declared that the global AV industry will grow to more than $325 billion by 2024; currently, it's at $247 billion. That means much more growth and many more jobs to look forward to. According to the NSCA, the average firm has around seven job openings. With an average staff of about 40 employees, that leaves a workforce gap of about 18% of the industry!
Small Businesses Often Yield The Best Talent
You don't necessarily need to join a Fortune 500 audiovisual firm or technology company to be successful and have the opportunity to grow. Small businesses can (and do) succeed in this industry once they have established their niche. By tailoring their operations to the success of a particular market(s) and complementing their technology with outstanding service, small companies are putting themselves ahead of their competitors, regardless of size.
Working for a small company has plenty of benefits. With a more personal, close-knit atmosphere, you can expect to find that your teammates often become an extension of your family.
