Are you a science student seeking a job in the medical field but rather not go through the hassle of writing the NEET exam?
Understandably so, because if you aren’t planning on being a doctor but still want to be a collaborator of the medical industry - the NEET exam may not be worth it if high-salary career options without it exist.
In today's global environment, healthcare is a widely thriving business with several opportunities for young people of our generation.
And the global healthcare business frequently outsources its services to poorer nations as a result of which Indian students have a high chance of pursuing a successful career without NEET.
So we especially talk about the remote work done for foreign companies, done at the comfort of your own home and with quite a high pay.
The high salary is attributed to the huge gap in foreign exchange rates between most currencies and India, especially dollars - $1 = Rs. 70 at the time of writing.
This is a huge win for both the youth of India and the foreign companies because they get to pay less and you get paid higher than market value!
Here are our picks of such work that you might be interested in and our top pick at the end.
