  • In India, many graduates struggle to find a job

For a lot of reasons, fresh graduates yearn to land a job even before the ceremonies are held, and this deals with the fact that there are still opportunities out there that promise high salaries and full government benefits.

Are you on your last dregs of tertiary academia? Here are some of the options you might want to consider.

Medicine

Let’s start our list with the most in-demand profession in the country ever since. With both public and private universities offering a wide range of specializations, students basically face an increasing market for medicine graduates each year. In 2014, at least 50,000 graduates in this field have been produced, with the salary ranging from 80,000 to 150,000 rupees a month.

Medicine is undoubtedly one of the most popular job profiles for a freshly graduate.


Engineering

Experts were gearing up for a massive construction boom from 2013 to 2017, and investments in this industry are likely to increase in the future. For sure, professions in engineering provide heavy compensation packages even for entry-level positions. Senior civil engineers, for instance can earn up to 350,000 rupees a year.

IT and Computer Science

Ever since then, the IT industry in India has become a major player in terms of innovation. One thing’s for sure, the country has become a software and tech hub as most graduates have relocated to Silicon Valley to work with major industry giants. In India, on the other hand, graduates of computer science and software development are also afforded hefty salaries. A case in point are software engineers that earn as much as 300,000 to 400,000 rupees a year, making their professions one of the highest in the country.

IT and computer science is yet another job which potentially guarantees success for a graduate.


English Teachers

As India continues to develop along the lines of IT and services, foreign companies are considering expanding their operations across the subcontinent. This would mean a greater demand for English language lecturers who could train the current workforce. Apparently, companies are investing a lot of their resources in language training; most have also hired in-house trainers, offering at least 300,000 rupees a year to individuals with intermediate to advance-level proficiencies.

Digital Marketing

Often dubbed as one of the fastest growing labor markets to date, the digital marketing sector in India continues to offer graduates numerous opportunities to work as brand advocates, account specialists, and marketing gurus. And with grosses of up to 400,000 rupees year, who could say no to such an opportunity? But graduates need to know where to look for the best jobs in this field. For those seeking to land a career in SEO, there are many reputable companies, such as BestSEOCompanies.com.

As we can see by now, graduates in India have a lot of options to consider. It is still important for students to decide where they want to be as early as possible. That way, they wouldn’t have to worry a great deal on whether they could get a job or not.

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
