Consumer goods often require to compete well in the market, keeping in mind the ever growing competitors in the same industry.

2. Management or technical consulting:
You can consider doing an MBA to become either a management consultant or technical consultant. Management consultants typically work on HR/ Oerations/ markting/ strategy/ project/ supply chain and many more - meaning you work for management side only.

Technical consultants can easily get a job in any IT firm and management consultants can find jobs with McKinsey & company, Booz & company, Bain & company, Boston consulting group and many more. The main advantage of being a consultant is, you will almost have a job profile with 85-90% travelling and you might get assignments either nationally or internationally too.
3. Tourist guide/ officer:

4. Travel writer:
This is a popular job in the present century. A travel writer earns money to travel and write his experiences for popular magazines and digital media. As you travel to places and meet new people, you can always write your experiences and sell it to magazines or media or travel informative channels like the Discovery, National geography, Lonely planet and many more.
