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.

Low Quality Drugs, Medicine Costs More Than Just Money

Even in high-income countries, purchasing cheaper medicines from illegitimate sources online could result in obtaining substandard or falsified medicines.

About one in eight essential medicines in low- and middle-income countries may be fake or contain dangerous mixes of ingredients that put patients’ lives at risk, a research review suggests.

Researchers examined data from more 350 previous studies that tested more 400,000 drug samples in low- and middle-income countries. Overall, roughly 14 percent of medicines were counterfeit, expired or otherwise low quality and unlikely to be as safe or effective as patients might expect.

“Low-quality medicines can have no or little active pharmaceutical ingredient [and] can prolong illness, lead to treatment failure and contribute to drug resistance,” said lead study author Sachiko Ozawa of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“Or it may have a too much active ingredient and cause a drug overdose,” Ozawa said by email. “If it is contaminated or has other active ingredients, then the medication could cause poisoning, adverse drug interactions or avertable deaths.”

Much of the research to date on counterfeit or otherwise unsafe medicines has focused on Africa, and about half of the studies in the current analysis were done there.

Almost one in five medications tested in Africa were fake or otherwise potentially unsafe, researchers report in JAMA Network Open.

 

Another third of the studies were done in Asia, where about 14 percent of medicines tested were found to be counterfeit or otherwise unsafe.

Antibiotics and antimalarials were the most tested drugs in the analysis. Overall, about 19 percent of antimalarials and 12 percent of antibiotics were falsified or otherwise unsafe.

While fake or improperly made medicines undoubtedly harm patients, the current analysis couldn’t tell how many people suffered serious side effects or died as a result of falsified drugs.

Researchers did try to assess the economic impact of counterfeit or improperly made medicines and found the annual cost might run anywhere from $10 billion to $200 billion.

While the study didn’t examine high-income countries, drug quality concerns are by no means limited to less affluent nations, Ozawa said.

“Even in high-income countries, purchasing cheaper medicines from illegitimate sources online could result in obtaining substandard or falsified medicines,” Ozawa said. “Verify the source before you buy medications, and make policymakers aware of the problem so they can work to improve the global supply chain of medicines.”

The study wasn’t a controlled experiment designed to prove whether or how counterfeit or poorly made medicines directly harm patients, however. And the economic impact was difficult to assess from smaller studies that often didn’t include a detailed methodology for calculating the financial toll.

The report “provides important validation of what is largely already known,” Tim Mackey of the Global Health Policy Institute in La Jolla, California, writes in an accompanying editorial.

“It is important to note that although the study is comprehensive, its narrow scope means it only provides a snapshot of the entire problem, as it is limited to studies conducted in low- and middle-income countries and to those
medicines classified as essential by the World Health Organization.” (VOA)
