They use computers, science, technology, and aspects of design to produce such products. They are employed by manufacturing industries and private design firms or they may be self-employed. ~According to Service Canada Industrial designers are usually employed by manufacturers, or design firms, but they are often self-employed. Opportunities will mainly come from employment increase, but also from jobs vacated by industrial designers who retire or change jobs. For example, the training and experience of industrial designers gives them access to jobs as drafting technologists and technicians and sales representatives, and to promotion to managerial positions. ~According to Service Canada Opportunities will be available first and foremost to candidates who have a college or university education. Some available jobs will be filled by unemployed industrial designers in the next few years, because the number of employment insurance claimants is still in 2011 was still twice higher than before the beginning of the 2008-2009 recession, even though the unemployment rate is usually low in this occupation. In general, college training leads to a position as an industrial design technician, working under the supervision of a designer, and university training leads to a position as an industrial designer among many other occupations. The drop in the number of entrants in the Industrial Design program and the weak rebound expected in the manufacturing sector should make the situation very good for future designers over the coming years. ~According to Service Canada According to census data, in 2006 about 53% of industrial designers worked in the manufacturing sector and 30% in professional, scientific and technical services, mainly for specialized design services (19%) and architects, engineers and related services firms (8%). Significant numbers could also be found in wholesale trade (6%). Whatever industry they work in, the vast majority of their duties are directly related to manufacturing production. ~According to Service Canada According to census data, women held approximately 27% of the jobs in this occupation in 2006, a percentage that has been rising significantly since 1991 (17%). As slightly less than half of new college graduates in industrial design are women, this percentage should increase but they can be expected to remain in the minority. Approximately 67% of industrial designers worked full-time and full-year in 2005, a ratio which is much higher than for the average of all occupations (53%). Even though the vast majority were salaried employees, in 2006 the percentage who are self-employed was almost twice as high as for all occupations (19% compared with 11%). These self-employed workers may be paid by the hour, on a flat-rate basis for specified contracts, as a percentage of product sales, or through a some combination of these three methods of payment. ~According to Service Canada Job prospects in this occupation are fair. Over the past few years, the number of industrial designers increased sharply. This increase was directly related to manufacturing sector trends. Given the slow increase expected in the manufacturing sector employment after the current recession, but also the critical role of industrial designers in the development of new products, their numbers should continue to increase sharply over the coming years. Employment growth in this occupation depends primarily on trends that affect the manufacturing sector. ~According to Service Canada Industrial Designers Have: Large sense of creativity Combination of artistic ability with practical sides of science and technology Excellent problem solving skills Innovation Strong communication skills Excellent computer skills Abilities to draw, make models, & do drafting by hand Solid understanding of business, especially in marketing Business skills, especially for self-employed designers An excellent portfolio with past designs and work when applying for a job In conclusion, Industrial Design is an important part in the lives of so many consumers. Industrial designers have a big impact in the world, especially in the developing modern age of technology.
This job field is really looking up for future designers, and is an excellent career for the many different experiences that come with such a job "Industrial Design." Wikipedia. N.p., 18 Dec. 2012. Web. 19 Dec. 2012. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_Design>.
