INFORMATION FOR ORAGNISATIONS


Advantages of Participating in the Campus Placement Programme of CPABI of ICAI

 

a)   The CPABI of ICAI organizes Campus Placement Programmes at 22 centres across the country in a corporate environment and the pre process of interview is fully system driven through placement portal  http://placement.icai.org.

b)   It is a One Stop solution for the recruiters to recruit the newly qualified Chartered Accountants for their organisations and carries the advantage of being a unitary platform for the recruitment of the young Chartered Accountants.

c)   It is a Cost effective mode with significantly shorter recruitment cycles, for the corporates for recruiting young Chartered Accountants together with an improved quality of recruitment process.

d)   Another advantage of Campus Placement is that, immediately after declaration of the CA final results, ICAI holds the Campus Placement Programme which reduces the time for an organisation to pick the candidates according to their need.

e)   The arrangements for the conduct of the entire process at all the centres are made by CPABI of ICAI.
