Consumer Product Careers

If you woke up to an alarm clock, shaved with a no-nick cream and blended a smoothie this morning, you’ve already used multiple products before leaving the house.

All of these products landed in your hands through scientific, statistical and creative efforts of the consumer products industry. Whether he or she buys DSLR cameras or elliptical trainers, the customer is king. The pursuit of their satisfaction (thus disposable income dollars) and is why every year, corporations pour billions of dollars in research and development (R&D). What results is a treasure trove of data that guides designers, engineers, analysts and business minds.

Today’s discriminating consumers have a wider spectrum of goods to choose from, keeping the industry busy even on a global scale. On the list of modern challenges for the industry include the complexities of cross-cultural marketing, and consumer product safety as evidenced by a media focus on toy recalls and food contaminated milk. Within this increasingly complex industry, specializations are increasing to suit the talents of all kinds of employees:

Creative.Are you creative and loathe to reinvent the wheel? Whether you’re a product designer or advertising and promotions manager, the evolving consumer products industry needs your ideas. Ideas enable it to crank out newfangled things you may not have heard of: Canister vacuums, compound miter saws, digital converter boxes and monochrome laser printers. These products are borne not just of purely scientific strivings, but by human imagination. Creativity is inherent whether you create collateral material, design incentive contests, or come up with “new and improved” product features.

Logical. Even if they haven’t found a way to design non-stick peanut butter jars, logical folks are in great demand. Industrial engineers design, test, and assess systems like ergonomics, inventory control and cost analysis. Logisticians see a product through its life cycle, purchasing managers track the flow of goods and variable costs, and operations research analysts supply optimization data to the decision-makers. What does all this arcane jargon mean? That there’s a lot of jobs out there – it takes a lot of number-crunching to run a consumer products business. For educational qualifications, it is best to take coursework in quantitative statistics, supply chain management, accounting and finance and more.

Psychological. Got a knack for understanding and influencing human behavior across multiple generations and cultures? Then you may be a great candidate for a position as a market research analyst or marketing manager. Through courses in social science, advertising and marketing you can qualify for fulfilling jobs in this field. You’ll also help companies answer questions like: Why do moms respond better to baby ads with milk bottles versus diapers?

Even if you are currently undecided about which field you want to take, your choices are abundant within the consumer products sphere. Because ultimately everyone, even a seller, is a consumer.
