They can also be working in Army or any other Security Services.

Scorpio Ascendant - If it is Scorpio Ascendant, Mercury rules 8th & 11th houses and sits in 11th house in Virgo, where it is exalted. This shows a person working in Large Organization in fields of finance, analysis, tax or revenue. Basically, any work in which person has to deal with lots of information & numbers and then analyse it. That's why they can be good astrologers too. They are perfectionist in their ways of writing and speaking. They will weed out all that is not necessary from their communication. Communications become a huge part of work.
Aquarius Ascendant - If it is Aquarius Ascendant, then Mercury rules 5th and 8th house and sits in 11th house in Sagittarius. This shows someone working as Professors or Lecturers in Large Institutions. Sagittarius is sign of Higher Education, Mercury is forever interested in Learning and also represents Communication/Speech, 8th house deals with all the research related work. So, it gives earning when a person gets involved in research related with higher education and then earns out of it. So, teaching work is most commonly seen here.
Venus - Venus also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Venus rules 8th & 1st house and sits in 11th house in Leo sign. This shows that your income is coming while working for Large Govt Organizations as Leo is sign of Govt. Thing with Venus in Leo is that not only they become highly creative and can earn from their creativity, but they also have great love for King-hood. It means whatever they do, they will always look for best things in that area. Even if they are going out for Snacks, they want to go to the Best Restaurant of the City. They desire a spouse who can increase their status like a celebrity. Otherwise, person can make money through his creativity and serving other people needs.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Capricorn. This again shows someone gaining from Govt Organizations, but here person is very balanced about his gains and earnings. This gives a love for Authority instead. They would love to be in contact with people in authority and will try their level best to reach an authoritative position at their work place. They will gain from Govt. In both the positions of Venus, person will be seen as a pleasant and loving person among networking circle. Good gains from in-laws.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Taurus Ascendant - If it is Taurus Ascendant, Jupiter rules 8th & 11th house and sits in 11th house in Pisces Sign. This shows a Guru type of person. Here, large organizations can take shape of Spiritual Organization. This person is highly learned in the fields of Philosophy, Religion, Occult and Spirituality. He has every ability to guide people in field of Spirituality and Occult and be a Guru to others. That's how they gain in their life.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Jupiter rules 5th & 8th house and sits in 11th house in Gemini. This is another good position for Jupiter where person can earn a lot from Teaching field. Jupiter is natural Guru and Gemini is sign of Communications. Other house Jupiter is ruling is 5th house of Education. These are the people who gain recognition in Society as Guru or Teacher. It is not as good as earlier position but it is not bad either. This can make someone really good in teaching in the field of Occult and Spirituality. In both positions of Jupiter, person gains a lot from knowledge based work. Good gains from in-laws in both positions of Jupiter.
Saturn - Saturn also can be 8th house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 8th house lord, Saturn in 11th house (for Gemini/Cancer Ascendants respectively) surely indicates that earning comes after a lot of hard work. Their earnings come really slow earlier but it gradually improves. Money doesn't come easy in life when Saturn is involved. They have to work their ass-off to gain in any field. They may not have big network circle or elder siblings, or even if they have, they will never gain benefit out of them. Even if they have money early in life, it will be taken away due to some sudden event. It becomes a greater possibility for Gemini Ascendant people as Saturn will be debilitated. As always, things get better with Saturn from 30s. So, till 30, it is time for patience and hard work. In 30s, they gain a lot from any work related with Insurance, Inheritance and due to any business related with underground things like Coal, Iron, Oil and Mines.
Rahu - If Rahu is 8th house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 11th house in Taurus then this makes a richy-rich fellow. These are those filthy rich people. Taurus is sign of Wealth and Rahu explodes Wealth here. They gain through their research oriented work in Large Organizations or through sudden events like Lottery or Inheritance. Specially, in Rahu MD, it can make a person super rich. But malefic planets come with malefic tendencies. This person is equally active in spending money, and that too on useless ventures. So, they might like to work towards this habit.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 8th house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 11th house in Aquarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person/spouse from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it separates person from the concept of working in corporate :). They are least bothered about money and hence universe blesses them with lots of money as we always get that thing in abundance which we least desire. It suggests that person has no desire to gain wealth and hence he gets lots of wealth.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
