Dont worry about that.

If you dont mind I would like to give you a suggestion:

Go to your Ex-boss, where you have done with your articles and work there till you get a good job.........

by this you can have some experience and if you wish you can enter into practise too..

if you are ideal right now, you may trouble in future because one of my senior went to an interview after 3 months of clearing CA and he faced a question "what were you doing in these 3 months?"

When we apply for articleship in different firms.....some firms select us and some reject.

So i guesss it's the same thing after becoming a CA. some companies will hire you and some won't.

This isn't surprising.

Hi CA AK Gupta,

Getting a job is not a problem nowadays, getting the right job is the problem. Let me share a trick which worked for most of my seniors who were qualified and got job recently.

Sit with your friend of similar who is in job who has good resume writing skills and draft a neat resume and upload in popular job sites, few to name it naukri, monster, timesjob.

And see the wonders in 2 days.

It hurts under pressure when you dont have a job, but when your in a job you get lot of exciting offers thats hard luck, dont lose confidence. Have faith in god.

All the best

Dear Mr. Gupta and all those who feel the same,

I had a dream of becoming a CA , - which I still nurture in the heart of my hearts knowing fully well that it will remain --- a dream. For me it's very sad to see such plight of such a distinguished profession as CA. But don't lose heart. Your experience and the CA qualification will take you to heights of success sooner than later.

For the sake of all the hard work you all have put in, don't let your negative emotion win over the confidence in you. Because a single negative emotion may ruin all the positive aspects of your character. Think this way -

(+1)*(+1)*(+1)*(+1)*(-1) = - 1  !!!!!

Try to face the interview board boldly and with self-esteem , as if you don't need the job and you are there just to check your ability to mingle with serious people!

You are CAs !!!! And you are experts in your fields. Waiting for the good news.

I am also one of the jobless CA. I passed recently (May 2011) first attempt.

Hey dude,

Don't get disheartened. You will get a very good and decent job. Your demand needs to be matched with right supply. If you really think there are too many CA's, then it would take some time for ICAI to match demand with supply. In our profession, values are important. If there are too many CA's in the country, values which a CA has to carry in his professional dealings will go down. So, ICAI will take adequate care and there is only one ICAI for all of us. Just wait and go even for a lesser pay for the time being. May be you are looking for a job only in Delhi or in your respective region. Try in Hyderabad or Chennai or Bangalore or Gurgoan. You will get the average salary of a chartered accountant soon of 6 or some odd figure, I mean, in a couple of months. You have struggled well and you need a little bit patience.

Thanks &  Regards,

Your well wisher.

One more thing

Companies come for campus because there are 10 for every 1 job on offer. If you go to off campus, you will get the job immediately because there is 1 person for 1 job. Campus is just a low motivator. Throw campus experiences out of your mind.

Dont worry,  but dont stop for searching job, and one more thing when u got offer from any company or firm just accept it and dont sign the bond for more than two years. after 2 years if you not satisfied with ur job than  just apply for job online  

you will be surprised .

Be confident
