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.
