New Delhi, June 23, 2017: Young Indians are keen on unconventional and new career choices, online learning and engagement at work, a study said on Friday.

Conducted by education technology firm Talentedge in collaboration with global research firm Kantar TNS, it suggested there could be a rise in off-beat careers in the future such as spa management, pet-grooming, gemology and pottery.

Young Indians have had a nascent realisation that acquiring add-on specialised certification will give one an edge.

“The future of Young India is unpredictable and so it is important for them to be more agile and flexible than ever before, and, therefore, must work on constant up-skilling and education,” said Aditya Malik, CEO and MD, Talentedge, in a statement.
