thinking of changing present job.Whhci job can I work ?

Postby SGBoyxxx » Mon, 04 Jan 2010 11:31 am

presently working in a public school dealing with audio visuals stuffs.
Been working here going to be my 10 yrs this year.

I was thinking what can I progress?

next I don;t feel like doing the same old types of jobs.

further more nowadays jobs out there prefer those workers who have experiences.

Any guidances?

Depending on audio visual stuff is you could look at helping out a media production company or special effects companies. Not sure how prevelant those are or how in demand.

Maybe if you described your skill sets and job description we could help more.

Personally, if it was me, I’d say the best transition you could probably make would be to the conference scene.

Conference Centres use audio visual people to run all of their conferences, and events. As do the top hotels – who regularly host conferences and business events.

Every one of these places hires audio visual people to run the software/electronics. It can be as little as just making sure microphones will work without feedback, to running laser shows.

I’d say you’d have a good chance of transferring to that sort of business environment.

If I was in your shoes, I’d be approaching conference halls, arenas, hotels, and enquiring about how they recruit their audio visual engineers. I assure you, almost all hotels have at least 3 dedicated audio visual workers on their staff. Arenas and conference centres, you are probably talking 20-30.

The problem with the medis is the fact that the AV stuff they use will be at least 10 years in advance to anything on the open market. You won't actually be qualified for anything in the media, I suspect.

Qualifying for media AV jobs will be a degree in New Media Technology, and about 3 years on the job training with a media company.


I work in the media, and am a regular on the conference scene. I'd suggest you'd have a MUCH better chance of making a transition to working the audio visuals in conferences, than in the media.

It's actually a good job, and a big market - conference work

This is the kind of job I mean by the way. Anywhere that regularly hosts corporate conferences hires Audio Visual Operators

It may be a nice transition. Moving into the business world. More opportunity getting involved in corporare Audio Visual work
