Dear friend, the subject geology is a job oriented subject and it has lot of job opportunities in India and abroad. The geology is a subject that is related to the earths internal structures, chemical and physical processes and the materials and biological aspects of the earth.


Let me first tell you job opportunities in India as Geologist. Depending upon the specialization offered in geology there are lot of scopes.
The specialized subjects are: Economic geology, geochemistry, geomorphology, geophysics, hydrogeology, mineralogy, ocenography, palentology, petroleum geology, petrology, and structural geology. Few other specialized subjects in geology also includes; remote sensing, sedimentology, seismology and tectonics. Therefore, the job opportunities will depend upon the scope and demand of the specialized subject.
As a geologist you will find many job opportunities in various companies which deals with earths mineral resources like, ONGC (Oil and natural gas commission), Coal India Limited, Oil India Limited, National Institute of Oceanography, and the private companies like Reliance India Limited.
