Associate - Statutory Audit


Brief description about me
I am a CA by profession, sports person by nature and working as an Associate in Audit department in a mid size firm in Mumbai. A bit rusty at times but thinks a lot about the things I do.

Important career decision
After completing my Secondary school, I went in the science stream and everything except scores was going right. But I didn't got admission in A grade engineering college. So I changed my career and went into commerce and CA was the best that I can   chose.

Prospective towards freshers
As a company you are looking for some talent that can give your company some benefit, freshers comes with some fresh knowledge and talent. Company can bank on them as the cost involved is not significant.

My skills
My temperament and acclimatization to the situation are my strongest attributes.

My role model
There are some including my Grandfather and some other relatives who inspires me to work but there are as such no one person by whom I feel to be like.

Upcoming Trends
The way Revenue Department of our country is criticized for the kind of work they are doing that too without having knowledge of our field, I think CA can be a game changer of our Revenue department.

My goal
I want to start a small sized business of my own with my family or friend but before that I want to earn sufficiently enough to run my business. Earn includes both knowledge and capital.

Family background
We are two brothers my elder brother is Pharma graduate from Pune. My father works as manager in Silvassa and my mother is a housewife. We as a family are happy family and share enough time together but in the race to earn we are not staying together.

Elders advice
 My mother is the best teacher I have seen yet who taught me lot of things which I think has helped me in my life.

My achievements
I used to be the top ranked student throughout my school but when I topped my SSC it was the first achievement I think I had achieved. I had cleared my CA in first attempt after switching from Science stream was my another achievement. I being the youngest in my family and helping my Mom - Dad is the best achievement that makes me really proud.

Advice to young people
Be honest with whatever kind of work you perform. Try the best you can deliver and never lose hope.

My point of view
As a country we never adopt our tech product but get attracted by some or the other foreign product. I agree that we may get something better from outside but that disappoints our technicians  There should be something done by our government or Central body to bring to the notice of the people that there are many people in our country with immense knowledge and the product offered by them are more superior than the foreign products. People are not at all aware of the genious we have in our country.
