Best Paid Jobs In India In 2019 And Beyond
So what are the Top 10 Best Paid IT Jobs In India In 2019? where are they? how much can you make? and how do you get them? And above all else, plus Can anyone do them?
First off, I am far from Indian, I am a proud Welshman, but given that I love India and Indian people and IT, I thought what better way to spend a very cold day in my home than to write an in-depth article on finding the best-paid jobs in India in 2019. So, I went and done some hard research.
What I love about India is the fact that they are so similar sounding to Welsh people, and they love technology like me so it was only natural that I write an in-depth 1000 word article on such a great people, and a great place and also a great industry like IT.
For me, India has millions of opportunities for everyone and anyone who is willing to learn more about IT and Technology, I just wish the Welsh people were more computer savvy than Indians as it’s crazy how much India loves IT. I think I was born in the wrong country!
Without IT, I think a country does itself a disservice not having it in everyone’s homes because think how much you can learn and use one to benefit you and your life. Thankfully things are getting better in Wales and soon everyone will have access to it.
So like the Welsh, Indians strive to find better opportunities wherever they can find them and what better way than the IT way especially in the cyber security industry in India which is actually booming right now due to the recent ransomware attacks by hackers.
So what jobs do you think are the best-paid in India in 2019?
If I was to answer this question without going by my research, I probably would say possibly could it be an ethical hacker or some sort of IT analyst? maybe even a programmer? hmmm let’s find out.
Sadly I was wrong in every way and you will be shocked when I reveal in a mo the results of my research that actually turned my initial thoughts on their head. My wife laughed at me when she saw my mouth agape like I just won the lottery.
Now, most people would probably generalize and say something along the lines of TELECOMMUNICATIONS but then there are people who do that sort of job all over the world.
Don’t get me wrong there are many companies in India who do this, but the same can be said about the UK or USA who are swamped with call centres. So let’s put an end to all your ridiculous theories and guessing and put your mind at rest.
