Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
It has been quite a long time that the conventional job sectors of the country have been stagnant in terms of something new and something innovative. With the daily old din and bustle with the job, India has been handling the demographic problem with very little ‘real’ progress.
The reasons could be the lack of creative opportunities for the workers, no real challenges to thrive the work potential, over saturation of employees in one particular segment leading to lack of employment opportunities, etc. In such a time period, people have started recognizing new opportunities in the new or existing sector of jobs that have potentials to hold the professional market strong in the future both in terms of employment generation and business growth. Let us now look at some promising job sectors of India:
1. Social Media
The Social Media fever started with fewer names like Orkut, Facebook and at this present point of time, the fever has risen to an extent which is beyond imagination. An entire virtual world has been created which revolves around social media. This platform has become an inseparable part of almost every human life. And on top of that, almost every day a new social media platform emerges out.
A social media sector is very much similar to that of any other job sector in terms of its working procedure and management. Thus, needless to say, more the number of such platforms, the better are the chances of employment and opportunities for people hunting for jobs. And this is such a sector of jobs where people from different backgrounds are needed. The social media movement is in its high peak now. Jobs on offers are Search engine optimization (SEO) Specialist, Social media strategist, Social media marketing manager, Blogger or Social media copywriter etc.
2. Information Technology
After surviving through the entire recession episode, the Indian IT sector has been on the brighter side for quite some time now. This is the only sector which has most significantly contributed in modifying India’s image from a slow developing economy to a major global player providing technology solutions. Although this is a very existing job sector, the new wave along with new opportunities coupled with a steady hike in pay scale is something to be looked forward to. Jobs on offers can be Software Developers to develop, customise and maintain software; Operations Managers for network maintenance, Call centre Agents etc.
3. Human Resources
With the significant proliferation in the management education, ‘the job of hiring’ itself has also become an extremely popular professional career which currently is experiencing its renaissance phase. The fact that most of the jobs and companies are shifting towards the private sector, the aspiring entrepreneurs are in the need of Human Resources assistance, resulting in more numbers of management and administrative positions. Interestingly, a bulk of these jobs will be extensively social media based which is considered to be another hot sector of job in India. Apart from contractual employment, in Human Resources field, there are also chances of temporary and part-time employment.
It is believed that by 2020, healthcare industry in India is going to be a major sector responsible for economic growth and employment. There are some issues with Indian healthcare market such as lag in molecular level development or drug patents but there are also advantages of this industry over rest of the developing countries in becoming a global hub for medical miracles. The costs for both medical treatment and medical educational services in India are a fraction of that of the cost in developed countries. Medical field is such a sector is the most sought after industry in the professional market both in India and overseas. Therefore, needless to say, such a vast industry even in a domestic market like India has the potential and opportunities in significant employment generation throughout various departments, such as human resources, sales, operations, marketing, IT and many more.
With all the talking and controversy regarding increasing FDI on one single brand to 100% from its current value of 51%, the Retail industry is undoubtedly one of the most sought after industries throughout the global professional market. While the future is yet to decide its fate, the expansion of India’s retail market has created a stronger and more organised force for employment drive. Apart from its domestic and international market, it is being predicted that, the next boom will come from its rural market which in the history had played a major role in retails. And also the year 2015 will see a double jump in workforce implementation in all the retail sectors. Jobs on offers are Front-end Staff starting from salesmen and store supervisors to managers, Sales Experts for building and promoting brands, Specialists such as merchandisers, garment designers, etc.
The infrastructure sector of India is extensively fragmented into various specializations. Therefore, it can be assumed very easily that there are multiple employment opportunities in different specialized segments in this industry. Be it roads and highways, shipping, railways, power industry or oil industry, the Indian infrastructure industry, both government and non government organizations have been making steady and rapid progress. It is expected that in the coming 10 years, the infrastructure industry in India will emerge out to be one of the leading profit generating industries of India and it already has started showing the early healthy signs of that!
