However, in the 21st century, this scenario has taken a complete 180-degree turn, we can statistically confirm that society has evolved so much beyond just mainstream education and is giving importance to the interest of the child, owing to the qualities that the child displays. This in fact reduces the peer-performance pressure on the child to be at the top of his academics whether or not, his interest lies in some other vocational course. The best part is the child can enrol in these varied courses after 10th or after 12th. Well, there is at least one-course minimum, to say the least up to many courses for each and everybody out there. You just have to choose your area of interest.

Here, I’m not against any mainstream courses, but, would like to elaborate on the fact that, in 2020, when the COVID-19 Pandemic drove the society in their houses, the only option that seemed most suitable to engage the society was to go digital completely. With the world on the brink of complete outbursts, the majority of the people found solace in vocational courses bringing up their creativity, presentation, passion, ideas, core knowledge, thought processes and turning them into freelancing and full-time careers. Because of the fact that these courses do not focus completely on the theoretical aspect but are focused on providing job opportunities for very specific areas of interest with a rewarding pay package. What else can you ask for?

Go for the ones that you resonate with the most taking into consideration your own qualities, interest, time investment, etc. And I wish you the best in your career choices.

Q.4 How is the salary for a freelancer or a full-time employee in any of the courses?

This is quite subjective and depends completely on whether you go for freelancing in which you charge depending on the quality of services you offer, your time management skills and the content that you offer. Once you establish yourself as a brand, the sky is the limit for your earnings.
