Generally in my more than seven years of career counselling experience, I have come across many queries from aspiring Chartered Accountants or Cost Accountants or Company Secretary students, however your query I would regard as unique because you are one of the very few students who wish to do something value added to make a career successful. I am also into teaching and so I am also very close to students like you. I am also a nation wide published author.

I am very happy to see you approach CareerGuide for seeking guidance and clarification to your wonderful and unique and yet very correct query. I am very happy to answer this first!
