Benefits of a Non IT Career


An increased salary is a common reason for individuals to consider a nontraditional career. This is especially true for women, as many trade, engineering and technological jobs (generally employed by men) boast a lucrative paycheck. Nursing is an excellent example of a nontraditional occupation for men that offers great financial compensation.

Broader job/advancement opportunities

Nontraditional careers tend to have well stabilized paths for advancement and are often unionized. These factors facilitate professional growth opportunities, leading to greater responsibilities and higher salaries.


With the vast assortment of available careers, you owe it to yourself to consider all avenues. What will make you happy? Don't limit your choices while searching for your dream career.

Job satisfaction

Selecting a career, based on personal strengths and genuine interest, will lead to greater job satisfaction. Now more than ever before, men and women are excelling and finding happiness in nontraditional careers. If you feel strongly about pursuing a nontraditional occupation, follow your intuition rather than shying away due to existing gender stereotypes.

Economic self-sufficiency

New career opportunities are appealing in part to increase financial success and boost livelihood. Moreover, nontraditional careers often suffer from a shortage of qualified personnel, due to lacking resources from a particular gender. This can lead to enhanced benefits and job security for those who do enter such an occupational field.


Gaining hands-on training and expertise in a desirable field will make you a more valuable employee. In today's economy, you can never be too marketable, and nontraditional occupations include some of the most specialized and in demand skill sets.

Paving the way for others

Some individuals enjoy pioneering and contributing to diversification that will benefit generations to come. If you feel at home setting a positive example and blazing a path of inspiration for others, a nontraditional career might be a perfect fit.

Challenge in Non IT Careers

Population Factor

The number of people looking for jobs has multiplied manifold over the years as the population growth rate has soared high. The rising population proves to be a burden on the number of jobs that can actually be created in an economy with its limited resources. The recent population explosion is a contributing factor to decreased employment in the country.

Skills Factor

The lack of relevant skills causes unemployment and underemployment due to a mismatch between skills acquired (supply) and skills required (demand). Lack of skills, unrealistic expectations leave many young people without a job and few options for future.

Reservation Factor

Reservation and Unemployment have been two of the most vexing issues we’ve been facing since Independence.SC-STs who have historically been denied access to formal education were always assigned the lowest level (often menial) jobs and were never part of the social, political and economic power structure. Since oppression, inequality and discrimination existed almost all through known history, they surely require some out-of-turn access to education, jobs, political power etc, which the nation gave them constitutionally in the form of Reservation (15% for SCs and 7.5% for STs) for a limited period.

Corruption Factor

Two issues that should not be left for just discussion, but which should be acted upon without much delay and with utmost concern are unemployment and corruption. Although the two are separate and need separate treatment, yet they are inexorably intertwined, and when they feature together they hint at bad governance. Corruption and unemployment can bring no good to a society, and it is only pertinent for the government to encourage a concerted effort with support from the public to end both.

Education Level

Education level in the recent years has improved, skill development is still a crucial issue. India has the largest population of youth in the world. Around 65 per cent population of India is under the age of 35, so the impact of declining financial market and the lack of job opportunities has the worst effect in India.

Work Ethics & Principle

Work ethics are essentially moral principles that are applied to a business scenario, and like the moral virtues that facilitate personal growth, work ethics ensure your professional growth. Surveys, however, provide a grim picture – 52 percent of working professionals in India don’t enjoy their work. This disinterest seems to arise from the growing evidence that young professionals are more materialistic and therefore, less inclined towards virtues as past generations were.

Moral Values

Unemployment has devastating effects on people’s economic and social circumstances. Its negative effects on mental health and subjective well-being are also well documented. However, until now, there has been no quantitative evaluation of the moral consequences of unemployment. Here, using behavioral experiments and an unusual subject engagement strategy, we present evidence that becoming unemployed erodes the extent to which a person acknowledges earned entitlement, i.e., acknowledges an individual’s right to that gained through his or her own effort or endeavor.
