Is it difficult to get a job even after becoming a CA?


Financial Advisor | Posted on

You may get a job after qualifying as a CA, but it may not be to your satisfaction. Along with your qualifications, you also need to be skilled in your communications and have the confidence enough to beat the others who compete for the same job. Jobs in India are scarce for those who worth more than the salary the companies are willing to pay. Most companies keep a fixed salary and do not increase despite the qualification of the candidate. They would prefer a candidate with lesser qualification to fit in with the salary fixed by them. Another factor is that if you have just graduated with a degree you might have to settle with less salary for a few years to gain experience. This makes life tough for those who have taken years to complete their education with a lot of money invested. 


Can a CA open up his/her own firm?
