Top career choices of the future

Updated on September 13, 2012

Nothing is for certain. You could be here one moment and gone tomorrow. The best we can do is to take informed decisions and just hope for the best. That holds true for your career as well. The best way to choose a career is to go in field that you love. However, most times, people just aren’t sure what they like and what they don’t.

If you are out of that majority, here are some careers that are expected to give you the maximum growth potential over the next decade or so, or even longer:

The medical field

People are born, people die, and between all that, they suffer minor and major ailments. The medical field can never go out of fashion. In fact, with people’s increasing health concerns, the field is set to experience robust growth over the next few years. India is already a hot destination for medical tourism and the prospects are only going to increase in the near future. The medical field does not only involve jobs for surgeons and the medical fraternity. There are other support fields where you can make a great career, such as accountancy, technology etc.


The entertainment industry in India has woken up to the power of marketing. More and more start-ups are coming up every day, and they need quality marketing to get noticed in the crowded world. People are still grappling with new avenues like social media marketing. That leaves a lot of scope for growth in the field of marketing. You could make a great career as a marketing consultant, or you could find good marketing jobs in big organizations. If you are good, the choices in the field are limitless.


The sector has experienced robust growth over the last decade or so, and it is showing no signs of slowing down. With reputed international IT firms such as Google increasingly hiring Indian workers, you can expect a lot of opportunities in the field. The IT sector in India is expected to add lakhs of workers over the next 5 years or so. The pay packages are good, and the growth is good too.

Food and hospitality

The tastes of Indian consumers are changing. People in the middle class and upper middle class are more adventurous about cuisines. Many international chains have already set up shop in India. That pegs the food and hospitality sector as one of the hottest sectors of the future. You could be a chef, a manager, or a PR. There are immense opportunities in the field in the future.

Financial consultants

People in India have more disposable income than before. Apart from living a rich lifestyle, the young crowd of India is also looking at fresher avenues for investment. They want to get rich quicker and maximize their earnings. Thus, most of them are seeking advice from financial consultants when it comes to investment. With more young Indians set to be employed over the next 5 years, you can only expect the opportunities in the field to grow.
