    Want a career guidance as per my qualification.

    I completed a master's degree in Philosophy last year. I am recently doing a writing job, but I want to know the other career option that fits with my qualification or paths that I can choose for a better career apart from Academics. I don't want to go into a teaching job or any government job.

    After your PG in Philosophy you have some options to choose for making a career. First is research work. If you have interest and liking for research work then you can apply for pursing a PhD degree in some reputed university. Another option is try your career in a professional content writing area where your knowledge acquired in the subject would help you in creating nice documents for various organisations.There are many social organisations in the nature of NGO and private companies which require philosophy people for associating in their projects for the welfare of the humanity and society. Salaries are not high there but one gets a feel of the job and develop the skills in that area. If you have an interest for social work and you want to fight for the social causes then it makes sense to join some social organisation and contribute your bit. There are some other type of job positions worth mentioning for a PG in philosophy. These are like Archivist, Administrator, Insurance Underwriter etc.

    Knowledge is power.
