Abishek Sir, You are right. Students and future members are doomed to suffer cos of ICAI's marketing failure. ICAI is covered on a majority by people of more than age of 50 years and all from practise background who dont know and understand the requirements of new generation CAs and marginally do anything to benefit the future CAs. Any ways, i can offer you the following suggestions which i would have followed if i had been in your place:
1. If you have a good contacts with your clients for whom you would have done audit or taxation work, Enquire for vacancies in their place and try there
2. If you have good friends doing articles or job in Big 4 (any location), try there. Big 4 has locations in every nook and corner of every states in our country, so there may be a vacancy at any location.
3. If your parents are working in a concern for a long period of time and have established a goodwill in their work arena, try in the same concern using their goodwill.
4.If any of your relatives is working as a HR or as a key person in any concern, use their influence and make a start in the respective concern.(Ya, i know you may feel a bit hesitant to approach any person for a job after passing CA but the thing is that survival matters first than any thing. So we have to do things which favor us at the moment for the purpose of survival).
All the Best
