Your question reminds me of the movie Three Idiots and the movie reminds me of its narrator, Farhan, who wanted to be a wildlife photographer. Don’t worry I’d not advise you to become a photographer like many others, because it is the I think, one of the most clichéd unconventional career option people are adopting these days. A paradox, I agree, but that’s how it is.
Indeed, the conventional career options are the things of the past. New generation is far more imaginative and creative, and does not want to restrict itself to the boundaries set by the previous generation. Engineers and Doctors are not the only professions for you if you are a science person. Likewise, for someone interested in humanities, the options are lot more than just being IAS and a research scholar. And if you want to explore the options for Commerce, the field offers many different careers.
Given below are some unconventional careers which you can think of pursuing. They are as interesting as they are well-paid:
• Photographer: If you are good at seeing the same old stuff with different new angles, and capturing them through lens, this job is for you. Photographers, these days, are needed by various firms, especially in entertainment industry. All you need is the knowledge of correct angles, correct lights, and correct mood. With these, you would be more than ready to capture the world in your camera.
• Curator: If you like collecting the objects of your interest and exhibiting them, you can think about becoming a curator. Research for arts and artifacts and contribute to the cultural heritage in the most interesting ways. You can get a well-paid job in some or the other museum where your interests would be valued.
