5 hot real estate jobs

Real Estate features among one of the most globally recognized sectors and is experiencing a growth of approximately 20 to 25% per annum. Driven by increasing incomes, urbanization and economic prosperity, residential and commercial realty demand is on a steady increase in India, creating highly lucrative job opportunities in this sector. Moreover, this good news comes on the wings of the present government’s ambitious ‘Housing for All by 2022’ scheme that has given a boost to developmental activity in residential realty across the country.

The Indian real estate and construction sectors contribute to nearly eight to nine percent of the country’s GDP and the numbers are projected to reach 40% by 2030. Also, industry experts anticipate a shortage of 2.5-3 million professionals in this sector by 2022. Not surprisingly, therefore, jobs in real estate are in high demand.

Let’s have a look at the most wanted real estate jobs:

Realtor

To be a successful agent or realtor, you need to have exceptional interpersonal skills and extensive knowledge of local real estate laws, financing options, mortgages and fair housing regulations. This is one of the most popular jobs in the real-estate sector because once in it you can potentially earn unimaginable amounts. However, that depends on how much the realtor can expand his/her territory or how many hours he/she can work.

Real Estate Appraiser

Real estate appraisers are professionals with strong accounting backgrounds responsible for estimating the financial worth of the property. Employed mostly by banks, and real estate companies, an appraiser researches the history of the property to determine the home or loan value and tax liabilities. Being a specialized role requiring licensed and educational qualifications, appraisers can be assured of hefty paychecks.

Real Estate Consultant

Real estate consultancy is fast becoming an attractive second career for retired real estate agents with extensive experience in the field. Counselors give advice and provide recommendations for buying and selling various properties. They also work closely with realtors or property investors to help customers make the right decision. Considering the real estate boom, their importance in the market cannot be overstated, especially when the customer expects professional advice for their property-investments.

Property Manager

Individuals with a strong sales background are perfect for this job. A property manager is responsible for protecting the client’s asset by hiring the right staff to take care of it, respond to emergencies, and provide timely feedback to owners and investors. They may work with real estate firms or private investors. The job is designed for an evolved stage in the real estate career and has its own set of rewards and benefits.

Leasing Agent

Leasing Agents work with property managers to find the right tenants for their buildings. They expertly navigate the complex property market to correctly match the needs and economic viability of the prospective tenants with the interests of the property owner. They handle the signing of leases and function as the landlord on behalf of the property owners. Leasing agents are respected in the industry for their in-depth knowledge of the property market and their ability to provide tailored solutions to queries concerning school districts, zoning, expansion and others.

5 reasons why business development could be a financially rewarding career

Business development or BD is the backbone of any successful business because it generates the coveted “revenue”. It is sometimes about cracking sales deals, or during other occasions about building partnerships. However, at the core, it’s all about creating long-term value for your organization. It’s also about acquiring important skill sets that help you throughout your career. So, if you are ambitious, target driven, and love to connect with people, here are some great reasons to take the plunge into the world of business development.

Business development applies to most companies

Any successful company will have a business development wing. In fact, any company that wants to grow needs people who will create partnerships, drive sales breakthroughs and take the business to the next level. While there are differences in industries and a business development role at a SaaS company is very different from that in a pharmaceutical business, the fundamentals of the role remain the same. This gives you a lot of scope to explore different kinds of industries, especially in the early years.

Hard work and results never go unrewarded

The best part about working in a business development role is that if you’re good at what you do, you will gain significant financial rewards. That’s because a large part of the compensation in business development roles is usually geared towards performance and results. Hence, if you have the ability to create new revenue streams and opportunities, the earning potential is huge. Simply put, if you’re competent, you will grow very quickly and earn hefty bonuses.

Best training ground for high level roles

Business development means interacting with your client and building new relationships on a regular basis. It helps you to know your customers in a way no other role can. It also teaches you how to build, manage and leverage relationships – a skill that comes in handy no matter which career you choose to follow eventually. Plus, effective business development also means interaction with operations and product teams to deliver on your promise to your customer. This helps you get a holistic picture of how a company functions – a knowledge that is crucial to step up the corporate ladder. It’s no wonder that several Fortune 500 CEOs come from sales and business development background.

Continuous learning and great satisfaction

The best part of a career in business development is that there is no defined path on how people go about it. While, some days are about meeting new partners and striking deals, the other days revolve around strategizing and nurturing existing relations. In a nutshell, every stage guarantees you continuous learning. As a business development professional, you will also meet a vast number of people from various fields and every deal is likely to teach you something new.

Opportunity to work with senior leaders

When creating business development proposals or cracking a blue-chip deal, you will need to collaborate closely with the senior leadership of the company. This can help you get noticed and advance more quickly in the company. Moreover, you also get to learn valuable and practical business lessons and leadership skills from your bosses. These should stand you in good stead no matter where you are in the future.

While a career in BD teaches you the fundamentals of how business is done, it also teaches you skills that help you become a better professional and a leader. All you need to do is spot the right opportunity and have the zeal to do something about it.

Here’s why biotechnology can be a rewarding career

Are you curious about deconstructing the basic building blocks of living organisms?

Does conducting serious research in a laboratory setting sound appealing to you?

Do you like to apply molecular biology knowledge to develop new pharmaceuticals or biofuels?

If the answer is ‘Yes’, then biotechnology is your forté. After dominating the information technology (IT) scene for decades, India has directed its efforts toward biotechnology. The Indian biotech industry is today what IT was in the 1990s – a sector with a robust growth trajectory and teeming with numerous job opportunities. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the biotech industry is experiencing a fast-paced growth in comparison to the previous years with the biopharma sector contributing about 62% of the total revenue. This is followed by bio-services (18%), bio-agri (15%), bio-industry (four percent), and bio-informatics contributing (one percent).

Animal husbandry

Whether you are just starting out as a biotech professional, or you enjoy a middle management position, opportunities are plentiful in this field in India. Depending on your degree and specialization, you can make your mark as an animal scientist, biomedical engineer, biochemist, genetic engineer or even an animal science researcher. These specializations require you to work on disease-resistant farm animals, gene-therapy treatments, animal reproduction techniques, biofuels, and so on.

Agricultural sector

Biotechnologists have an important role to play in this sector because it is the main source of livelihood for nearly 58% of India’s population. According to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), the Indian food processing industry has cumulatively attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) equity inflow of about USD 8.57 billion between April 2000 and June 2018.

Problems such as crop diseases and soil imbalances have triggered a demand for genetically modified disease-resistant crop varieties that give a higher yield. Similarly, biotechnologists have to develop newer ecofriendly fertilizers that can minimize the harmful effects of synthetic chemicals, making the crops more consumable. Given that the food industry is poised for huge growth, there is tremendous scope for professional agricultural scientists, researchers and agronomists to contribute in this field.

Health sciences is an evergreen sector

Lack of effective cure for several diseases make the health sciences an attractive field for people who are always looking for opportunities to improvise diagnostic methodologies or discover cutting-edge medical therapies for disease prevention and cure. Besides, there is a constant need for talent to develop pharmaceutical formulations using both modern and traditional medical methods such as Ayurveda, medicinal plants and Siddha medicine. With the Government of India’s ‘Pharma Vision 2020’ that aims at making the nation a global leader in end-to-end drug manufacturing, more and more companies are making significant investments in R&D. This in turn has created more jobs for clinical researchers, pharmacologists and biomedical scientists.

Biotech Industry in India

Comprising about 800 companies, the Indian biotech industry holds about two percent share of the global biotech industry. The Government of India has also undertaken quite a few initiatives to encourage further research and attract more foreign investment.

Currently, India features among the top 12 global biotech destinations and ranks third in the Asia-Pacific region. Out of the top 10 biotech companies in India, seven specialize in bio-pharmaceuticals and three have expertise in agri-biotech. Moreover, after the USA, the second-highest number of US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA)–approved plants are in India.

In India, Biocon, Panacea Biotech, Ranbaxy, Aventis, Primal Healthcare and Novo Nordisk are some of the big corporate giants that hire the best biotech professionals. Many private and government research laboratories also need such professionals to develop innovative products by using technical software, genetic coding and more.

Therefore, given the interdisciplinary and diverse nature of biotechnology, professionals can now look forward to a rewarding career where they can utilize their skills, knowledge and experience to revolutionize life. So, if you are looking for a promising career in biotechnology, start your job search today.
