Most of these construction is for residential and office purposes. All these offices, houses, flats, etc. one day or other would need beautification from inside.

While choosing college you should look for its placement history .There are many firms in India. High paid jobs are generally available in metro cities. According to my research a decent job which pays you around ₹25000 to ₹30000 per month is easily available in the city of banglore. If you are looking for the best firms to join in India then you should understand that here every city has its own bests. You will have to search your best accordingly if you do not get a placement from your college. Do not worry your salary will increase with your popularity in work and time. Formula is simple, more the number of happy clients, more is your chance of promotion.

Creating your own job-

According to me due to the impractical education system of India. Most of the people are just running to get a decent job. You should understand if no one will create a job then who will get a job. One cannot depend entirely on the government for creating jobs. You can also open one in your city with a little investment and the rest can be arranged from the advance payment from the client. Yes, this is a perfect field to start your own firm and make it an international brand.


In this field, job and income directly depends upon your creativity and talent. Those who are not interested in this field should not waste money because if you do not have an interest, you cannot develop creativity and make people follow you in the field of work.
