So given below are some reasons to choose the road less traveled…
1. Public Relations Professional-
If you’re someone who recharges by interacting with others and is fascinated by the corporate world, then a career in Public Relations would be your best bet.

A social media marketer does more than just publishing posts, he/she also designs various campaigns to get engagement.
As a marketer, you will have lots of creative liberty to design campaigns and you’ll also be responsible for making data-driven decisions.
You will get to create brand awareness and learn how to reach out to online customers.

4. Wedding Planners-
If you wish to start your own Shaadi Mubarak i.e. plan weddings, then absolutely go for it. Use your organizational skills and creativity to pull off weddings that start a fire on social media pages.
Wedding planners can make anywhere between Rs. 25,000 to 5,00,000 per month depending on the consignment.
5. Fashion Stylist-
Obsessed with the art of putting together stuff? If your interest lies in creating and putting together something that will speak for itself, then being a fashion stylist would be a good choice.

Fashion stylists make anywhere between Rs. 2 lakhs to 15 lakhs per annum on an average.
If you are someone who is opinionated and witty, then a career in law would be the right choice for you. Lawyers fight for causes and law is an esteemed degree to pursue.
Law could be an extremely fulfilling profession to pursue if you worship just practices and love to help people.
You may pursue Intellectual Law, Criminal Law, Entertainment Law or Corporate Law, etc.
Do not think about it much, the opportunities in this field are endless. Some lawyers charge between Rs. 5 lakhs to a crore for one court appearance. You may also start your own firm.
Those six professions, in my opinion, are the coolest to pursue. They not only pay well but also keep one stimulated intellectually. They have tremendous growth opportunities and are well suited to our generation.
