What Is A Wiring Harness?

Posted by Clare McGarrey on Jun 9, 2015 4:42:00 PM

Anytime you enter a new industry there is a learning curve involved. I started my position one year ago off of the recommendation of a friend. I had little idea what they meant when I was told, “We make wiring harnesses”, or that there would be so many variations of our products, or how differently the aerospace industry works from what I have experienced before. Honestly I just thought that the company looked really well run, but working on amazing platforms like F-16, F-15, and UH-60 Blackhawk didn’t hurt either. My first year has been overwhelming at times but I’ve met some great people and feel like I’m finding my way.

Three Reasons Why Aerospace Companies Do Not Use Social Media

Posted by John Ashour on May 11, 2015 2:59:29 PM

InterConnect Wiring has been in business now for over 22 years.  During that time, I remember when we got our first fax machine.  That was a big day for us.  I also remember when we started using email.  We were so happy!  When we launched our first website, we were all so proud.  A few years ago, we started using social media without acclamation; a “non-significant” event in the life InterConnect Wiring. Why? The answer to that question is the same answer to the question “Why Aerospace Companies Do Not Use Social Media?”

When you look at a business card for a person who works at one of our main customers such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Sikorsky, Bell Helicopter, BAE, L3, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, or Honeywell, you never see logos for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, or other social media websites. Additionally, most of these companies do not invest much time or effort to use social media to improve their brand or for marketing and sales.  Why is that? Most large corporations do the opposite. Social media is extremely important to their company’s longevity, market position, and financial stability. The answer is three fold: (1) average age of employees at aerospace companies (dinosaur mentalities), (2) target audience or marketing of aerospace companies, and (3) ITAR and security clearance issues.

Happy New Year! 4 Ways to Welcome 2015 with Open Arms & Minds

Posted by Clare McGarrey on Feb 10, 2015 11:21:15 AM

I’m sitting here at Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. and it is a very good thing I am a morning person. It is 5 till 6 in the morning – been up since 0430 – and I am writing this blog. I know this sounds corny but I am so excited about a new year. Personally, 2014 was a rough year with plenty of medical issues with our one and only saint-of-a-son, Nicky. But professionally speaking, it was ideal.
