Automotive designers work in the automotive industry to develop the cars that we eventually see driving on the road.
There is a wide range of duties associated with this position, from using computer programs for model-design and resolving mechanical programs to building prototypes and preparing the necessary materials. This position requires a great deal of mental effort, and these designers spend most days in an office on a computer or working in the shop. They must be able to work independently but also on teams, as many automotive employers hire multiple designers.
Automotive designers should be team players in order to create the best-looking and most efficient cars to be sold on the market. This position typically requires a bachelor's degree in engineering and/or relevant prior experience, and the hours and shifts can vary, though they can generally expect a regular work-day and even some work at home depending on the employer.
