There are lots of Government as well as Private job opportunities are present in front of Graduates. Talking about Government jobs, State Agriculture Departments recruits Graduates to fill up Officer level posts. Government Colleges also hires M.Sc. folks to work as Lecturers. Government Banks also hires them to fill up Officer level posts (that primarily deals with Agriculture related loans).
Talking about Private Sector jobs, graduates may find jobs as Managers at Plantations, as Officers at Fertilizer Manufacturing firms, Agriculture Machinery Industries, Agricultural Products Marketing firms, Food Processing firms etc. One may also work as a Lecturer in Private Colleges. Starting salary is generally between 2.5- 5 Lakh Rupees per year.

Congrats for choosing agriculture as your career when this generation is running after computers and electronics. This is an evolving sector in which organic farming, new methods of farming and a scientific approach towards agriculture are included. Though Navneet has given a brilliant advice, I will add few other career options such as Vocational Trainer – Agriculture, Conservationist and Agriculture Researcher.
To fill these vacancies different Govt. organizations issue a circular from time to time. Keep in touch with those organisations through newspapers and consultancies. All the best!
