Dear Aspirant, As already mentioned by other experts about the eligibility criteria, I would like to make you aware that in the industry today, just being eligible by qualification is not enough, but you should have the employability aspects in you to get a good job.

Dear Aspirant, If you wish to work in Social sector, you will get jobs and work in NGOs, etc. For Social Work, not always academic qualifications are necessary. For being in the social work domain, the most important aspect one requires is the high mental ability and passion to 'serve'. If you have that passion and capability of serving people without any craving for money, then you can make a career in the social work irrespective of the qualifications you hold. You need to immediately search for jobs in NGOs and try getting associated with self help groups informally and formally, so th

Dear Aspirant, There is nothing like BEST OPTION.
