    Default ACCA Articleship or Internship???

    AoA Friends

    I have attempted my final ACCA papers this december. I wish to start an internship or articleship now but am confused about which one should i opt for. Can you people guide me in this regard keeping in view the future prospects of the two? I am more concerned about learning and building a strong cv at this stage, earnings are not my prime concern.

    An early and helpful response from related friends will be highly appreciated.

    Regards

    ICAP is not a business, otherwise, they would have charged several times as much as they currently charge for each paper....like ACCA does.

    n in western region, 1lakh rs is hard 1000 dollars which is not much money at all for a month. ppl who DO find relevant jobs DO get paid atleast that much or more. n that may not be too much money but atleast u can survive decently. what living standard can u maintain for 6000rs a month?
    n its not about how long the course is, its about how comprehensive it is. accountants need only 2-3 years to get gud understanding of the field while doctors need atleast 5 bcuz of the vast knowledge. dude, even a b.com holder can get 10-15k easily. its not like salary is directly proportional to the number of yrs spent studying. lol ... wat a silly argument!
    You cannot differentiate between salary and stipend, now i am helpless

    and about foreign earnings, why should you even study ACCA? a friend of mine works in Pizza hut in London and earns 1500 pounds per monnth.....

    If they wanted to artificially create a shortage of CAs (which is quite pointless btw), they could just raise entry requirements.



    what reason?

    as chaudhry9 said, that wud restrict the revenue flow. after all, they HAVE to have some revenue to run the organization.

    n the reason, well, i ve stated many in my previous posts e.g. harder to complete, takes longer, not-so-gud international acceptability etc etc. lesser ppl enroll in CA n an even lesser, infact hardly a few pass it, so, not as many CAs in the market.

    well , ACCA is also a not-for-profit organization, like ICAP. although both may be making some. but u should understand that ACCA is in uk, their expenses etc are much higher then ICAP n they charge 60-90 pounds per paper depending on the level. while they may seem to be a lot of cash in PKR terms, its really not that much if u're in uk or if ur earnings are in dollars or pounds. so acca is NOT as expensive. although marginally expensive then CA.

    ICAP charges 1/10th of that, and you can still get jobs of similar pay abroad with it.

    If you are going to start insulting, I think I should also ask both you, ahmed billa, and chaudhry to go back to your village and manage your cows...

    just to clear myself, i never targetted YOU in this reply which you took over your head. By "YOU" i meant general people as i was justifying the earnings level you mentioned. I am so sorry to see your reply as i thought you might b some mature guys with whom i could learn something as well, but my mistake. Keechar me pao me nay hi maara tha, so my fault

    sad to know that u turned out to be a typical low life lahoriaa who thinks hes the center of the universe. Well actually im not a gujjar, nor i have any cows to take care of or any village or agricultural land to be proud of.
    Im a simple person, who doesnt judge ppl by their profile or location and who would really not like it if u talk about his family one more time!
    and who are u btw? im assuming u must be a billionaire celebrity. because i'd be disappointed to know that all of that attitude is coming from a guy who just got back to his civic n thinks the world is all about him...

    i am sorry if you felt any of my post targetted towards you. i can assure you that by the word "YOU" in many places, i mean a general person, not specfically you. this is how i debate. i have been using Pakwheels for long but my posts are very little just because i dont peep my nose into every matter. So this concludes that this was not my place as well.

    Whatever you think about yourself may b right or wrong, but never underestimate anyone, this is my advice for you.
    thankyou and its over from my side
