Updated on June 23, 2014

With the rise in real estate and infrastructure costs, fresh chartered accountancy graduates have started working for MNCs rather then setting up their own firm. Also private practise makes it hard to find clients and setting up a firm may take 3 to 4 years. Fresh Graduates get a starting package of Rs 6 lakhs per annum, which is indeed alluring to a 24 year old. More and more opportunities keep coming up in chartered accountant jobs, which has led to the rise in the number of CAs working in various industries. Most of the chartered accountant jobs are with manufacturing and finance sectors.
