Thanks for posting your query on CareerGuide.com. With the same qualifications, within the same field you have several career options that you can pursue. You may not necessarily need to change your field.
You can do an MA in English and appear for the UGC-NET exam for lecturership and pursue teaching at college level as a profession. The NET exam is compulsory for eligibility to work in UGC approved colleges. If you do so, and get a job in a UGC approved college, your salary will be above regular private colleges as they will follow the UGC scale.
If you want to teach at school level you can do a BEd after your BA. Now-a-days even in the school sector some institutions are good paymasters, especially if you go for international schools.
Other than this, the option of appearing for civil service examination is open for you if your interest lies in that. You may prepare for and appear for the UPSC exam and get a good government job depending on your performance.
Another field open for you within this field is Voice and accent or language training in BPOs. You can do this even with your current qualifications or after a PG as well.
However all these apply only if you are interested in this field. In case you want to switch fields because of a lack of interest, then it is a different matter. In that case the world is your oyster and you have innumerable options to go for, but I can give you appropriate guidance only considering your interest and aptitude. Simplest example is doing an MBA after your BA and enter the field of HR. So if you still want to change your field you can contact me to explore what other areas you might be interested in and are capable of pursuing.

Dear Friend:Why you are worried inspite of being a student of such language and literature -ENGLISH. It has world wide acceptibility in several formats. First you make up your mind and develop the confidence in your ongoing study which will provide you the strength for your future career objective.In india more then ninety percent students are found in dilema due to the blind race and without having any clear objective join any wrong discipline then become misfit. It is not a wise approach one should understand the implicability of subject, read the illustrations and references and see the allumuni what they react after passing out a subject it will give you a fair ratio of fit and misfits that blame the subject which is a unfair trial.Keeping above facts in your mind and then follow the instructions as below:1. English hons with any professional degree or diploma will lead you to several jobs like Jouralism, trnaslator, tutor/teacher, banker, enterprenureship, legal practice etc.2. If you want to swith over to completly another field then you must answer certain questions - regarding lacking and loofalse of the subject why it is not job oriented or why you are misfit or why subject is not compatible. These exercise will save you to be victim of other subject or other discipline becoz still you are anwared of the facts regarding other subject what you want to join as a footstep to lift you for any suitable job which gives you smart salary. It is not a matured step and thinking, any subject can give you the bright future if you justify and after assessment, analaysis you find your current course good for nothing then once again you need to justify about your pre-matured step what you have taken earlier and now you are realizing negatively how will you answer this.3. Intelligent people never look back and try to incuabate into the same field and make it a powerful launching pad which reward and award you with bonus and you become more learned and your claim for success will be very viable and reliable for recruiters by observing your continuum of trnascript.

You have chosen a lucrative course that offers high job prospectus. So stay calm, dont worry, keep your eyes and options open and look for opportunities that come your way.
