Creativity is an essential criterion for multimedia developers. They should have the ability to take responsibilities as well as the ability to work with team members. Excellent organizational skills are an added asset. Multimedia Developers can expect to find careers as trainers in corporations and public service agencies, as instructional multimedia designers and producers, as specialists in instructional computing and software design, and as computer-resource teachers. In addition, multimedia Instructional Designers may be involved in the design and production of informational CD-ROMs which are educational titles and reference material such as encyclopedias where information is presented in an easy-to-understand manner. They also design games that vary from "shoot everything that moves" arcade-style material to educational games which hide learning behind fun, and web sites that vary in content and intent as much as traditional CD products.
Career opportunities for multimedia developers continue to grow with the concurrent advances in multimedia and communications technologies. Recently there has been a marked increase in the number of schools, colleges, universities and other training programs that have embraced the potential for multimedia enhancement of learning materials. The same is true for corporations that are using multimedia technologies to create training programs to enhance the skills of their workforce.
