  • The fact of the matter is that if the organization has still the opportunities to learn & grow than its good to stay for some more time or else the indications are clear to move on with some good organization which can indulge you in some diversified roles along with a comparatively high salary package. For this you need to prepare a good resume highlighting your experiences along with the positive aspects that the other organizations can take advantage of.

    The process wouldn't be too easy as it seems to be in the initial phases but this would also require a lot of patience & consistencies as you would be in competition with numbers of other aspirants & in order to do better you would have to go head beyond them in every aspect.

    In addition, you also need to work on some professional courses like that of MBA in Finance & Accounts which will greatly assist in your shifting to a good profile.

    Beside to this, if you would like to some part time consultancies jobs in GST filing as well as an income tax practitioner than this also can prove out to a good choice for you as later on you can own your consultancy services to say the least. This is possible as you too would also have been evident of such part time consultancies provided to your current organization. The thing is how you take it & make a move to make it happen in real terms.

  • You are already having a career in a consumer durable distribution company and from your details it appears that you are already well involved in the operations of your employer's business enterprise. As you told that you are a semi CMA qualified person which means that you understand and carry out the various works in the areas of financial planning, analysis, and management decision-making. That is a crucial job and is the backbone of any business house. Your knowledge of Income Tax and GST is an added advantage to you.

    If you are sure of your capabilities then you can ask or request the employer for enhanced responsibilities and work flow through your command and in that case the associated remuneration will automatically be coming to you. Meanwhile you have to explore some other greener pastures where your expertise will be remunerated in a better way. Once you give this hint to your present employer that there are some better places for your talent and experience he will be concerned about you and at that very point you can find your worth in the present set up. Their concern for your retention in the company will be the first signal to you that they need you.

    Meanwhile please find out what are the areas in your place where you are not able to contribute much due to lack of your knowledge and these are the lines where you can go for short courses to bring you at par with the other managers or workers in the company. Please remember that the career making is a cut throat competitive thing and you can not have any laxity in that by giving space to other in your area of expertise. You have to use your experience and expertise as the tools to progress in your career ladder. Normally the experienced accounts manager can easily become the general manager in any company.
