Nursing is flourishing with each passing day, in various parts of the world. Several multi specialty hospitals are coming up and nursing is no longer restricted to simply assisting surgeries and looking after patients, like in the older days. Advancements in the field of medicine and health care have given birth to new specialties in this field. There has always been a global shortage of nurses.

Oil, Petroleum & Natural Gas
The present global scenario for these perishable resources is not a secret to the world anymore. This critical sector offers jobs with incredible growth prospects in its sub-sectors such as mining, engineering, research as well as sales. You can reach new and greater horizons, but you have to spend a considerable amount of time in this field in order to grow and prosper.

Digital marketing has created a revolution, which is in turn producing excellent job opportunities for qualified aspirants.
We will now take a look at certain departments that offer you lucrative packages and excellent growth prospects:
It is believed that there are several better products available presently than the one we are using. The only problem is that the producers are not able to market these products the way they should. Most successful companies spend tremendous amounts of time, efforts and money on marketing their products. However, there are smarter ways of doing it too. Marketing is also the most critical department for any industry since it generates a major portion of the revenue that a company earns.
Sales & Service
Sales and service is another highly crucial field for most manufacturing companies, especially in the engineering domain. The customer will buy a new product from you only when you provide good after-sales services for their existing products. Like marketing, this job is very challenging since it is target-oriented and has tremendous growth opportunities. Higher positions in sales and service jobs, such as Regional / Area Sales Manager, offer handsome salaries.
Business Analysis
A business analyst is a career that offers excellent growth opportunities as well as lucrative salaries to qualified aspirants. A business analyst basically designs business processes, analyzes and redefines the present trends and finally integrates these with technology.

Legal Advisory

Hence, they hire a team of the finest legal advisers that they can get and obviously pay them handsomely to retain them. Legal advisers get lucrative salaries, however the job involves a high risk and important responsibilities. This job undoubtedly offers tremendous growth opportunities and is also among the most reputed careers of the world.
Financial Advisory
Financial advisers are usually experts of accounts, law and insurance. This is definitely the most promising career when it comes to professional as well as monitory growth. However, to achieve this, you at least need to have a bachelor's degree in commerce and finance as well as Law. Financial management is a worthy alternative to this field if experience is a factor that is coming in your way.
All these careers are high-paying ones and can offer a good long-time career. In order to make a mark for yourself, you will need to have the aptitude, keen interest and determination to succeed.
