Very insightful read. I graduated with an Industrial Design degree and this is very relevant to our field. For one, I didn’t know that “Product Design” suddenly became only digital once I got out of school and was looking for a job. And even until now, most companies looking for Industrial Designer are still looking for Mechanical Engineering background. Fortunately my first job out of school was at a start-up that helped me explore all aspects of Design in the IoT field, but unfortunately the current state of job listings, and talent acquisition makes “specialists” more of a hot commodity than “generalist” like myself.
