Well, our corporate security has Spotify blocked for employees so were not able to access the link (requested access, but not likely they will grant it). Any chance the audio file can be uploaded here for folks to take a listen directly or posted on an AVIXA URL as opposed to Spotify?

Great topic, two industries highly intriguing and intertwining via dependencies! That being noted, have always found it very interesting that aerospace/space/rocket company career sites often portray aerospace jobs (which are sometimes highly comprised of AV aspects some as much as 80% of a job posting description) as aerospace engineering or satellite duties (without ever mentioning the duties as AV)? It appears recruiters in the defense/aerospace industry are not aware of of the overlap and similarities that intertwine with AV design and engineering. Is anything being done by AVIXA to reach out to educate these aerospace HR/People departments on the overlap with AV talent and the possibility of mentioning to have AV candidates apply to open positions, or add their postings into AV career sites requesting AV candidates apply to bring them into the aerospace sector? Bet the aerospace/sat folks would be pleasantly surprised at some of the results they may find.   

Hi Joseph, 

Normally, seen throughout company job postings in the space sector. Companies such as BAE Systems, Raytheon Technologies, Rocket Lab USA, etc. Frequently see jobs postings seeking radio frequency (RF) engineers, satellite controls,  navigation systems,  radio communication systems, low voltage, network engineering, NOC centers, etc. These are skillsets (or similar skillsets) that many CTS holders obtain knowledge or skills about (to some degree) within the AV industry. Somehow, space systems human resource departments don't seem to correlate any existing knowledge or skills in these areas to AVIXA CTS holders.  Perhaps adding CTS or AV Engineering to their job posting skills requirements would increase applicants and hiring managers could entertain some additional dialogue? My guess is many space industry hiring managers have no idea that CTS holders posses a great deal or knowledge or skillset in these areas.
