Audio Engineering Job Overview
Audio engineering jobs are dedicated to making sure that the world hears every message, every sound and every note of music loud and clear. An audio engineer must have strong attention to detail, be knowledgeable with a wide array of equipment and computer systems and enjoy working with sound. Audio engineers must also be able to communicate quickly and clearly with other people involved with a production or event to ensure that their efforts integrate seamlessly with the work of others.
Audio engineers find jobs as audio and visual technicians, working with performing artists, being performing artists in their own right, and assembling sound work for a range of media.

Anyone seeking to become an audio engineer should have a demonstration reel of previous work available for potential employers to consider. Demonstrable ability and a solid track record of dependable work are heavily considered by employers when looking at job candidates.
