AV Junction releases free platform to find AV pros to hire

Dealers can use AV Junction free features for full-time or temps

TORONTO, ONTARIO, July 2, 2019 –  Taking a major step forward in its mission to simplify the process of finding expert AV professionals for both contract and full time work, AV Junction today announced the launch of their free web platform for the audiovisual industry. According to company Founder & CEO Paul Weatherhead, AV Junction provides companies with instant access to pre-vetted AV professionals while simultaneously helping industry pros to find new employment opportunities.  This is the industry’s first dedicated online marketplace of its kind, and is available now here.  Registration only takes a couple of minutes to complete and best of all using AV Junction won’t cost you a penny.

“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 explained. “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.

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. As the former Vice President of Operations at Advanced, a leading North American AV integration firm, Weatherhead 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 emphasized. “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.”

Specific platform features include:

  • Qualified Applicant Searching: Quickly find qualified AV professionals for contract or fulltime work.
  • Post Jobs: Post jobs and instantly receive matching applicants who are automatically invited to apply for the job.
  • Send Direct Messages: Send direct messages to AV pros. Check availability and ask additional questions about their skills.
  • Add AV Pros to Favorites: Companies can add AV Pros as favorites so they can build a roster of professionals for easy access.
  • Ratings System: Rate AV Pros after each project, boosting attractiveness to other potential employers after a job well done.

All applicants are vetted by AV Junction; and then receive a “verified” check mark on their profiles. All participating AV Pros can showcase their skills on a dedicated profile and market themselves to a focused AV audience, search for jobs and send direct messages to employers.

AV Junction is available to commercial and residential systems integrators, rental, live event and staging companies, exhibit and production houses, and audiovisual manufacturers in 25 countries.

“For the very first time, companies have unrestricted access to a portal of AV professionals that they can easily find and work with on their meaningful assignments. And, for the very first time, AV pros have a dedicated platform to market themselves and their hard-earned skills to an audience that needs them more than ever. All of this at a fraction of the cost to anything else available on the market today.  It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”
