Dear Swapna,
As an MBA graduate, you have a lot of opportunities. It seems that you majored in Finance. This is a tricky one and you need to assess whether you like the content of your current job and would like to build on your experience in the banking and insurance sector. Or, based on your degree and interest you would like to start afresh in a new sector. So this is really a two-step process wherein I suggest you begin backwards, first assess the type of job that you are looking out for and then the sector. The type of job will guide you to the sector that offers the kind of job that are looking out for.

As you will do your research, you will find that there are lot of sectors that have growth opportunities like telecom, IT, insurance wherein MNCs offer good compensation packages and work culture. You may want to look at private banks and insurance companies as well that offer fast growth careers as compared to nationalised banks.

While you are sorting all this out, I would suggest that you try and extend your contract with your current company as that would help maintain continuity in your resume. Best of luck!
