Hello Dear Statistician,
Welcome to CareerGuide!!!
I hope you have been doing well and congrats that you hold a degree in Statistics.
Well your query is quite relevant because very few students are aware about the future career options after completing their degree in statistics.

As the role of the statisticians role is to do the applications of the methods of statistics and interprets the numerical facts and creates a valuable information with the summary of data and findings. It translates the numbers into knowledge.

So there are wide career options available for the statistician; they can work in various sectors like Education,Medical,Finance,Agriculture,IT etc.
They can make their career either in Public sector or Private Sector.A degree in statistics do give a career opportunity but if you hold a Master Degree or PhD that gives a more credibility to boost your career.

If one is giving a thought to make a career in Public Sector than in India there are around 97 institutes under Indian Council of Agriculture (ICAR) and 45 Agricultural Universities requiring a huge human resource to work in Statistics.You can give exams of Agriculture Research Service (ARS),Indian Statistical Services (ISS) through Agricultural Scientist Recruitment Board (ASRB) and UPSC respectively. While you can also give exams of Subordiante Statistical Services (SSS).On cracking these examination one can join National Statistical Organisation or Central Statistical Organistaion or National Sample Office.

While in Private Sector top MNC's like HP,TCS,Infosys,HSBC,GE etc hires Masters or PhD holders of Statistics.

You can also have a good career options in Foreign Countries also like US,UK etc because there is a great demand for Statistics Students. You can also work with UN Bodies like ICARDA,ICRISAT.

Dear Aspirants,

I would like to share my industry experience about Statistics.

Statistics is a very nice domain field and as far as numbers are concerned, few students take up Statistics Masters and do a career in statistics.

With ever increasing information and data, there is a need to refine data and information and make it useable for a particular purpose. Here Statisticians are of great help.

Statisticians are very helpful in IT field, Agriculture, Business Analysis, Finance Management, Economic Development, Economic Analysis, Insurance.

The salary for statisticians is also very high and there are also freelance opportunities available.

Best wishe s
