Ans : There are plenty of job opportunities for a commerce grad. The main areas are Finance, Banking, Chartered Accountancy, Insurance, Foreign Trade, Stock Broking and Economics.

3.       I have applied for a company for the position of Accountant with B.Com degree, but I didn’t get an opportunity though I tried several times?

Ans : The best way to settle as Accountant is to join with any Chartered Accountant (CA) as the junior or learner or Intern or Assistant. You can join for no payment basis or minimum payment or whatever the deal in between. First learn the Accountancy then apply for jobs. Show your experience of working with a CA and then apply for a company. Youngsters or the fresher’s should always remember that you must learn first about the job exactly. We can appreciate your knowledge that you may say you are the topper and excel the academics. But before you must undergo the real time experience and the on-the-job training for one or two years.

4.       I am a B.Com graduate and I want to become a Chartered Accountant (CA)? How Please tell?

Ans : It has three levels Common Proficiency Test (CPT), Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC) and Final Examination. After passing your 10th Standard examination, register for CPT in Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). Appear for CPT examination after you pass 12th standard and after completion of a period of 60 days from the date of registration for CPT. Passing the CPT and 12th exam is compulsory, otherwise you are not allowed to register for IPCC. Then at last Final Exam. Here you have several other exams in between to appear for final exam like Group I& II etc. If you are the B.Com grad, then you should have 55% marks and can take IPCC (and should appear for articles for 9 months) directly without CPT exam.

5.       You have mentioned about the Marketing Researcher, what is it and How to become?

Ans : Marketing Researcher (MR) is a person who collects and analyzes the data about the market (it can be any area). Then he will make certain recommendations based upon his/her findings. This is very essential job now a days which is becoming famous and paid in higher amounts. There are more chances of becoming a freelancer in this field. Most of the work will be a quantitative research that involves collecting numerical data about the market of any particular business and using statistical software the data is interpreted and then conclusions were made as a final report. Based on this report given by a MR the business can be done or initiated.
