Is it just me or are job openings at audio component brand or manufacturing companies rare or basically non-existent? Do you have to know someone who knows someone who is the uncle of someone you know who is the CFO of an audio component company to get a job in these places? Rotel, Polk, Sunfire, Ascend, Outlaw, NAD, B&K, B&W, JL Audio, JBL, GMA, etc.
Most medium to large companies I know have at least an application process online. Audio component companies have nothing of the sort.
