I think the role of an Industrial designer is very much as you've put it - We can fill most design roles. I am personally aiming at Product Design positions and CAD design positions, not that i've had any luck since graduating!!
Can i ask what sparked this curiosity?

Also I'm pretty confident that your CAD or sketching skills won't make you a good designer.

All designers have specialties and all companies have work-flows. We have to be versitile enough to fit their needs.

I think our part - after the creation and concept development- is more cordination and keeping the project all tied up within the concept enitially created based upon the briefing we get in the first place, plz correct me if I'm wrong

Thats the majority of the thing i do, education. Its a slow process, and after being in my company for more than 3 years its only starting to show fruit.

sometimes I think I'm in trouble cuz I graduated recently and this is my fist work experience, on the other hand, it's a startup company and you know the complexity of a new business is something you don't get to see everytime, and the buisiness model is forming up. thats when you get dragged between the engineering part and pushing more toward the design side. (ROBMAY: that what sparked my curiousity, cuz I graduated and positioned in a startup company, somethings got confused on me)
do u have any idea from ur experience how can I push and develop the design role in such a startup company's business model???, we do plastic part and mold design by the way, mostly plastic bottles and some injections molds, branding, and some graphic design services.

sometimes when I think where should I develpo myself in what direction, I get lost in all these elements....

But like everybody says, its where you want to be, and what your qualaties alow you to be.
I want to be involved in the engineering (CAD) of products because i like how you need to puzzle you way through to get the best results.
Most important thing everybody must remember that its always a team effort. Even if you are a free-lance designer... (i dont expect them to have their own production line) So where you end up is totaly to you, develop a healthy interest for all different area's then decide.
