It would always be a wrong decision to opt for a career by only considering as to in which profession people are highly paid. There are no ‘Hot Careers’. The careers that are considered Hot Today might not be the same after 10 years.
In today’s time there is scope in every field whether it is Medical, Engineering or it might be any other course. One should focus on internal factors like one’s interest, aptitude, skills, values, abilities etc. rather than external factors in choosing a career. Whatever one opts would become a Hot Career for him/her if the person has interest in it and has the caliber to perform with excellence in the same.
So I would say go about doing course that you have interest in and work had in that course and it will become the best course for you.
