You need to be wise with your choices and select something that suits you instead of following the crowd. So take a look at these 5 career paths.

Arts and Humanities

With time Arts and humanities have got their due respect. But still there are people who think opting for Arts and Humanities isn’t worth it, especially for bright or brilliant students. However, in today’s every subject and field has great potential & scope. The only requirement is that the individual should have will and skill. Arts and Humanities also have great potential and scope of creating a bright & better future for students. But one thing should be remembered: the field of Arts and Humanity is very vast. It has an array of subjects and options. One must be sure about which subject to choose. This selection process can be made easy by knowing your interest and future goal or aim. If you are clear about your future aim and objective in life or career then you will be able to select the right subject. If it’s too confusing and hectic a task for you then just select a subject that aligns with your interest.

Science

Next on the list is people’s favourite ‘Science’. Jokes apart, Science is a very significant subject and arguably the strongest in the lot when it comes to scope and potential. The reason for this is the technical knowledge which the subject provides and the future aspects which open after getting into the field. Like Arts and humanities, Science too has a lot of options. But here selecting the subjects becomes even more important. Because after entering one stream or field in science it becomes very difficult for a student to change his/her path. Few popular options in Science are PCB (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Maths), PCMB (Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Biology). The mainstream and popular choices for students in the category are the Medical and Engineering field. However, there are many more options in this field which are related to the Science subjects. Avoid getting into the rat race. Instead, follow your heart and take your career in a direction of your interest.
