In any commercial organization finance is one of the most important functional area and Chartered accountant plays a vital role in it. CA has been one of the most admired , respected and a well paying profession amongst the various other options in the commerce field. A CA is a person who becomes a member of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India after passing the final examination of institute.

Their work is usually exhausting especially during closing of financial year therfore they should have long sitting capacity, both mental and physical agility to handle such time.

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

4) Confidentiality of information

5) Independence that is free from any interest

6) Planning the audit



7) Skills to report the financial statement in the best manner
