Angel - use LinkedIn to network with individuals that have that expertise - search companies in that industries and then the people send them a tailored connection request to set up an informational interview - networking is king - secondly connect with me to broaden your network -

Here is a colleague of mine who is a premier leader (J.D.) in the drone business. He was the first in the U.S.A. to start his own certified drone pilot apprenticeship school. He has branched off into into AI (artificial intelligence) and is an international speaker on this topic. Last, but not least, he is a young entrepreneur and is an opportunity to have diversity inclusion (black-owned business) on your radar. He is very professional, patient, and pleasant to work with!
