Consumer Products Careers

Consumer products are products designed for use by an individual as opposed to by a company or an event. It’s a pretty tricky definition, but some examples given on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website include “toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals”. If a career in the consumer product business interests you, here are some options to consider.

You’ll need a bachelor’s degree for many of these positions. A love of the product you’re making will certainly help. While you can get started with a few of these positions (such as quality assurance and control) without a degree, what you gain from a degree program can help you get in the door or advance more quickly.
