Confused whether to opt for CA or Software Testing
Confused between continuing a software testing job of changing to study for becoming a CA? Searching for pros and cons of both options? No worries, read the career related advice from experts here and decide further course of action.
I am confused about my career.
After 12th, I have applied for B.Com and also passed the CPT exam with 9th rank in Bhopal. I have a dream to become a CA. But at the time of IPCC, due to family problems I was taking too much stress so had to leave CA-IPCC.
After B.Com I got a job in TCS for Software Testing which is out of my subject's interest since my parents told me to go for it. at that time I was not in a situation to take decision but after joining I was feeling good to do the job work.
But when I think about my future, then I have only interest in accounting subjects rather than learning computer languages (soft testing). In the job I can practically do Testing but can't study Computer subjects.
Many times when I heard about any topic regarding CA then again I start thinking about CA.
Also till now I have 1.3 yrs experience in software testing and this year also applied for MBA.
But the main problem is that I am not able to understand what I am doing and what I want to do. So I am not confident and due to this am too confused. Sometimes I feel that I should leave the job and go for a CA.
Also my financial condition is not much good and I can't take a loan because there is no guarantee that I can clear CA exam as it requires luck also.
So can't determine whether should I opt for CA or continue with my job. Can you guide me?
