  • In which year, you completed MSc nutrition science? Gap after 12th is not a big factor but gap after M.Sc. is considered when you are trying for a job.
    Do you have an interest in your specialization because you mentioned that your professor misguided you to take this field?
    If you are not passionate enough for this field, I advise you to try something else. You can take short term computer-based courses and can get a job on that basis. You can try teaching in junior classes in private schools or can start taking private tuitions of the subjects of your interest.

    If you want to have a stable career in your own field, there are many sectors you can work in. "because every hospital prefers female candidate only." is not true. I have worked with many hospitals and have met many male dieticians and nutritionists.
    You can work in health care centers as a diet planner or nutritionist. You can work in the gym, in private multispeciality hospitals, big schools, and colleges, etc.
    If have a grip on writing, you can start blogging about health care, nutrition, etc. Online consultancy is also trending nowadays.

You can easily apply for the job online itself these days by visiting few Pharma and Hospital portals other than Naukri or Monster or TimesJob etc.

    Few experts already have given the suitable answers on this. You can even become as Dietitian in case if the job openings are available. Keep on trying and would get the job for sure. Assume that, I can get the job easily rather than thinking like, can I get the job? mindset.

    You can also try for the Nutritionist job openings in State Government or Central Government organization. You will get the job detail from Employment News paper for Central Government where they post such vacancy for Indian Army or Naval or Defense etc.
