The geography is the science of earth. geographers are the scientist, who describe and study about the physical details of the environment, its effect on humans, wild life, weather and climate, economics and the culture. There are many different branches in geography such as , physical geography, human geography, environmental geography, social geography, cultural geography, economic geography, and many more. The geography as a career provides multiple job options. With the increased use of satellite technology and Geographical Information system, geography is becoming more promising career options than it was ever before.

Place of work (government sector or private sector) 4. Additional qualificationsThe academic qualification is very important.
