NEW DELHI: Young Indians are keen on unconventional and new career choices, online learning and engagement at work, a study said on Friday.

Conducted by education technology firm Talentedge in collaboration with global research firm Kantar TNS, it suggested there could be a rise in off-beat careers in the future such as spa management, pet-grooming, gemology and pottery.

Young Indians have had a nascent realisation that acquiring add-on specialised certification will give one an edge.

"The future of Young India is unpredictable and so it is important for them to be more agile and flexible than ever before, and, therefore, must work on constant up-skilling and education," said Aditya Malik, CEO and MD, Talentedge, in a statement.

There has been an increase in interest in online learning of 46 pct over the past three years.

According to the study, youth are seeking more and more instant gratification early in their careers, requiring employers to constantly keep the young employees engaged and stimulated.

"If a company needs to keep young employees motivated, it must create a sense of growth by giving them short term goals and ensure a work-life balance," added Ritika Goswami, Account Director, Kantar TNS India.
