The AES Melbourne Section Skills Survey

The AES Melbourne Section is conducting a survey of pro-audio practitioners to identify the education, skills, and experience of people working in the pro-audio industry.

The purpose of the survey is to assist the Section in better provision of services to our members, and the industry at large.

It will also help us in answering queries from people interested in entering the industry.

We would greatly appreciate your participation in this survey.

You can get to the survey through this page on our website:

http://www.aesmelbourne.org.au/skills-survey-2017/

The survey will run for one month, so please respond promptly.

Both retired audio folk and students looking to break into the field are most welcome to complete the survey along with current practitioners.

When the survey results are available, a summary will be provided to all participants as a reward for their effort.

All data provided is anonymized before processing, and will not be used for any purpose other than the provision of consolidated summary reports.

Thank you for your participation.
