Creating AV integrated rooms is both an art and a science. You need qualified professionals on your team. If your go-to AV technicians aren’t skilled in the particular area you need, you must find and hire freelancers to get the work done. And sometimes, when your sales team comes to the installation department with a new project with a short deadline, you need to find labour quickly.
In the status quo, this can be a stressful situation. It’s difficult to ensure the freelancers you hire are as skilled, capable, and reliable as they say they are. You’ve no doubt heard horror stories from other AV project managers in the industry hiring independent freelancers who really didn’t have the qualifications required to take on the projects they were hired to do. Their projects turned into disasters because these freelancers weren’t qualified. They lost money. They lost clients. All because they didn’t hire the right AV technicians.
When it comes to finding and hiring AV freelancers, you have some options to consider. Some are better than others.
