If you are pursuing CA, then you must be aware of doing articleship (training) for 3 & a half years. The best part of doing CA is its articleship where a student can learn a lot of things which he/she has only read in books during his school/college days. If you do the articleship properly & from a decent CA firm, yo will inculcate all the desired skills which are required to become a good CA & to get a god job.

Following are the skills which are required to get a good job as a CA:

1) Thorough with technical knowledge of various laws

2) Practicle implication of various interpretations under various laws

3) Ability to explian the client about the Do's & Don'ts. Also the consequences of non-compliances
