Hi there,Before I begin to talk about work opportunities, let me begin by talking about what a Paint technologists does.They are responsible for developing new products as well as enhancing and upgrading the qualities of products which have already been developed. Paint Technologist identifies and evaluates the suitability of various paints for various applications. They also explain to the customers about the right usage of paints and identify new markets for the products. Their work also involves developing new colours and textures of paints, new techniques for the application of paints etc.
Now from the above description, surely a Paint technologists has many departments that they can opt for, right from research to marketing to production to quality to being a technical assistants
So a little brief about the work in each department to help you clarify the job roles. In research and development, one has to identify, evaluate and develop various technologies, formulate the paints that meet the requirements for the desired end application. Paint technologists employed in production department monitors and improves the efficiency in the process of production. A person working in the paint manufacturing company is responsible for the analysis of raw materials and finished products In the quality assurance department, they are responsible for the product being to the mark and passing the set rules and regulations. In technical services and marketing sector paint technologists help in identifying newer markets, promoting products by educating customers, explaining the benefits and right usage.
As far as jobs are concerned, any Paint company, will have their Manufacturing Company as well as their Retail firms separate. Based on what you decide to work as, you can choose either the Retail or the Manufacturing or Production unit.
Other than the paint industry, you can have opportunities with organizations that make use of the paints like the Home decor industry, or the automobiles, Food and technology firms etc.
Hope this answers your doubts.
Wish you good luck...........
