Now, I am looking for a career or as a part time career in the field I have interest. But I am confused since I have to consider all the circumstances while choosing it.

Hey there.....


You are doing a good job and moreover an opportunity with the government postal services is like a dream come true job.

So even if you have a good opportunity as a part-timer, my advice will be do not quit your job.

I do understand that your job may be too tiring and demanding, but mind you most of the jobs are the same more or less.

As far as part-time jobs are concerned, it would be completely your choice.
Do something that interests you and keeps your mind fresh.

If you are into cyber crime or web designing, then it involves a lot of hard work and is a stressful job. And after the whole day of job in the postal department, relaxation is a must.
As such, getting into Social work by joining an NGO or Teach India seems to be a good option.


But since you are looking for a part-time opportunity that helps you earn also, then a new career which is into " Digital Marketing" is playing a role these days.

Digital marketing involves a combination of marketing as well as the use of technology to help promote entrepreneurs newly into the market.
It involves firstly creating a website and then promoting the site through various online portals like the internet, mobile etc.

Your knowlege of hardware since you are an IT graduate can help you into this field.

Only you would require knowledge on software applications and web designing.
There are short term courses available for the same. Or you could opt for a part-time or correspondence MCA course.

This field will help you not only in terms of monetary benefits but will also help you socialise with people and a sense of job satisfaction.

Apart from this you could opt for cyber crime or ethical hacking courses too.
Check the foillowing websites:

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you all the very best..............
