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:

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.

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
