Five Unique Career Options after B.Ed in India

old books, book, old

Everyone knows that you can become a teacher after completing your B.Ed. But are there other possible career options that one could pursue after such a specialized, focused degree?

This was the question that got us started on our quest to find the most unique careers that can be pursued after doing a B. Ed. And the results?

Well, we found some pretty cool career options. Don’t worry, we aren’t going to tease you any further. Here are the best career options after B Ed, along with information such as salaries, job profiles, and more:

Public Relation Journalists

Not satisfied by the various career options we talked about? Well, how about becoming a public relations journalist? You will get good pay, be involved with interesting work, and the potential for career growth is enormous.  

Public relation Journalists are responsible are maintaining and establishing cooperative relationships with the media, local communities, the government, consumers, and other public-interest groups. They can work with different industries and organizations, including hospitals, business firms, or nonprofits. Some professionals work as freelancers and work with independent clients.

Starting salaries will range from INR 4,50,000, but keep in mind that this is just an approximation. Work-life balance can be a bit absurd at times, but it’s not something that you can’t manage after proper communication with your seniors.  

You can very easily expect your starting salary to double within a few years. With time, your work profile will change, and your daily work will stop being about the nitty-gritty of things, and more about the general overview and high-level strategization (is that even a word?) for the future of your organization. 


Another option that you may not have thought of, being a B.Ed graduate, is becoming a Teacher. Okay, sarcasm aside, becoming a Teacher is actually a really good idea. There is a reason that people automatically assume that if you graduated in B.Ed, you are going to become a Teacher. This career is safe, with steady demand and steady salaries.  

If you have been living under a rock, here is what a Teacher does –

Teachers are responsible for preparing general education lessons and teaching the various subjects, helping the disabilities of students by reading and writing subjects. They also teach communication skills, interpersonal skills, literacy skills, and other skills.

Teachers also plan, organize, analyze, and assign activities that are specific to student’s abilities. Apart from this, some other work that you may be required to perform as a Teacher is management of people, internal operations and so on. The work is challenging and rewarding at the same time, which makes for a deadly combination if you ask us.  

No surprises there. I know it’s tempting, but don’t be fooled by the simplicity of that job description, the work is still work. Timings are the good ol’ 8-2, and most schools don’t allow teachers to work from home, but that has changed a bit after the pandemic.  

Salaries are good in this profession, with a decent amount of money being offered to freshers (approximately INR 3,50,000). Monetary growth is slow, but quite steady. There is not a lot of travel involved in this job, but you may be subjected to a few transfers here and there. Excited? Great, start applying to Teacher jobs. Not your cup of tea?  Read on, we got a few more options to help you along. 


For students of B.Ed, becoming a novelist is a slightly unusual or odd career choice. However, being special does not imply that the work is of poor quality or that the pay is low. It simply means that, for whatever reason, there aren’t many people who walk this route.  

Novelists are responsible for writing new ideas and turn those ideas into stories. They must demonstrate a great quality of dedication and creation. They spend a lot of time on thinking for ideas and figuring out a creative way to write and express those ideas in a good manner. They also edit their writing and proofread the content to avoid misspelled words and avoid grammatical errors. 

The line of work is creative, which means that no two days will be alike. You’ll still be a problem solver if you’re a novelist; it’s just that you would be solving problems of your characters. Plus, if you’re a ‘creative’ problem solver, you’ll get bonus points.  

In this sector, salaries vary greatly. And they are based on a variety of unrelated variables, but one thing you can count on is that you will be paid what you are worth.   

The potential for growth is strong, but the competition is fierce. The job can be difficult and stressful at times, but if you like writing, you will enjoy being a novelist. To stand out, you’d have to be exceptionally good at your work. The sky is the limit for the fortunate few who make it. 

Technical Writer   

A great option for you, if you are a B.Ed graduate, is to pursue the path to become an Technical Writer. The work-profile is really interesting, and you would be required to solve unique problems every day. Is there a better feeling than that? Probably not.  

In simple terms, technical writers are responsible for preparing journal articles, instruction manuals, and other supporting documents to communicate complex and technical documents easily. They also gather, design, develop, and disseminate technical information among designers, customers, and manufacturers.

They work with other technical staff to make sure that software products are easier to use, and also use many tools to write software documents. They also edit and proofread the documents to avoid grammatical errors. 

B.Ed graduates have an added advantage, as they have been trained to do a lot of writing like this due to regular assignments and coursework during their years of study.   

Work from home is possible in this field, but whether you are allowed to do this or not depends a lot on the company that you are working for. And if you are assuming that there is a dearth of companies that hire Technical Writers; take a look at related job postings on LinkedIn – it will blow your mind (Okay, it might not blow your mind, but it will definitely change your opinion).  

Salaries are a mixed lot. Some firms offer really good starting salaries, whereas others would require you to slog for a couple of years before you get decent pay. On average, you can expect your starting salary to be around INR 4,75,000 per annum. 

Non-fiction Writer   

If you love educating people so much that you can’t get enough of it, and if you are also deeply passionate about it, then Non-fiction Writer may just be the right career choice for you.   

Non-fiction Writers are responsible for submitting work to other publishers, publishing their own writings, and being part of other related assignments. They try to stimulate inspiration for new writing and use a variety of writing exercises. They also conduct meetings with clients, publishers, people interested in purchasing their writings, and other writing professionals. 

It is not a 9-5 job, which means that you will have enough time to spend with your friends and family. Finding a job in this space is not super-difficult, especially if you have samples and portfolio projects which scream about your abundance of talent to the publishing houses.  

A lot of soft skills are needed in this profession, and being an introvert might work against you. A high level of confidence is definitely a prerequisite. If you are not comfortable working within a team, and if your communication skills are next to nothing, this may not be your best bet. 

Another important thing to note is salaries. Salaries are often dependent on a number of things, such as location, company, skills and so on. But on average, you can expect to earn anywhere around INR 6,00,000 as a fresher in this field. Some publishing houses offer more, some publishing houses offer less, but the amount we have provided to you can be a good reference point for negotiations.
