And there are companies which have been in existence for generations as well as a large number of upcoming startups. So, as an Accountant, there is a very large set of domains and work patterns which one can act in.Processes valid for one company might not be so much applicable in another. A big enterprise using high processing software would need a different type of accounting professional than say a company which operates out of a small office employing a relatively smaller number.

From the Accountant’s perspective as well, Mumbai possesses valuable attributes. A person who practices over the accounts of a business not only gets better at the process of accounting; he/she also gets a very close observation of the most key aspect of any business: its money. Seeing as any business is run for the sake of making money, a good understanding of the cash flow leads to a better understanding of the business itself. This means an accountant, given enough interest and effort, can get better at the business as well. Besides managing the accounts, there are various other skills a person can acquire and develop one’s career even further.

Presently, ICAI is the only institution which provides industry standard and widely recognized certification for Chartered Accountants. As such, its certificates are highly prized among accountants and are considered a valuable asset to score a job in any firm. There are institutions which help people prepare for the ICAI certificate. Before one can claim the certificate, it is required to work as an intern accountant at big firms so as to gain the relevant exposure that is required for an accountant. So effectively, if one has the certificate, it almost means one is market ready. If the industry standards are not an absolute requirement, a skilled individual can learn the tricks of the trade from smaller institutes and develop one’s skill on their own as well. However, having it usually means an easy entry in the market. And once a person gets their foot in the door, it is a long and glorious journey for an accountant in Mumbai’s market.
