B.S.Omkareshwar (CA-Final Student) 31 January 2016
Joining a firm like KPMG for my CA Articleship was always my dream ever since i joined CA as my career.As you may be aware of,KPMG is one among the Big Fours in the world. For CA Articleship aspirants KPMG is the best firm to shape your career (Its my opinion,I respect other's opinion too)
As soon as CA Students passout CA IPCC/Intermediate the very big question that they face is where to do his/her articleship. Should it be mediocre firms or the Big Fours? Many students often think that joining Big Fours these days has become bit difficult. But i strongly disagree with this. With advancement of technology, every Big Fours have come up with many initiatives so that the aspirants do not find it difficult to reach out to them.What it needs to successfully join a Big Four is strong determination. Once you have decided to join any Big Fours,no one can stop you.One must have confidence in themselves.
One more misunderstanding many CA students have in them is that only rank holders or who one who scores big numbers have better chance of being selected. Well, i say that it is "one of the criteria" and not "the only criteria". I have seen people who have scored average marks but still they got selected that is because they were confident, they had decent technical knowledge, good communication skills.
