Toy Industry Workers
Only a high school diploma is required for many production jobs
in the toy industry. Some positions, such as industrial engineer,
software programmer, or industrial designer, also require that you
earn a bachelor's degree. If one of these jobs interests you, be
sure to take a college prep curriculum. If you are interested in
production work, you will probably not need formal education beyond
high school. While in high school, be sure to take shop classes
that teach you how to use machinery. Family and consumer science
classes in which you learn about sewing, using patterns, and
picking out materials may also be helpful. Other classes to take
include art, basic mathematics, and English.
