Today the job situation in our country is very dismal and the demand for the professionals is much less than their availability. A large number of students are coming out of the colleges and institutions but there are limited jobs in the industries in most of the disciplines. Still there are ways to deal with this situation by acquiring some specific skills and short certificate courses which might be helpful in getting a job in the present set up of the industries. You already have the experience in the Accounts line but that might be with the old applications and utilities and today so many new Finance and Accounts software platforms have come which are integrated with big corporate platforms like SAP, ORACLE, Data Base, and Cloud porting. So it makes sense that one has to look into those territories and once your Bio data/CV shows those skills and experiences then the chances of getting positions in the industry would be easier.
CMA would also be helpful but I would suggest you to see the feasibility of doing some short certificate course also in some latest niche areas in Finance and Accounts field as that would give you an edge over your competitors who will also be desperately seeking a change in job or new job.
There are many career options in Finance and Accounts area like Tax Accountant, Finance Controller, Budget and Audit Accountant, Accountant/Accounts Manager, Treasury Analyst, Forecasting and Cash Management, Business Shutdown/ Bankruptcy consultants, Investment Banking, Portfolio Manager, Fund Specialist etc. Most of them are interconnected and doing a particular course would get access to many of these.
Some of the short courses that you can consider based on your past learnings and interest areas are - Financial modelling/planning, Financial reporting, Wealth management, Investment analysis, Treasury management, Financial risk management etc.
Once you acquire knowledge and skill in some niche area then while your interview itself the company or organisation where you would be applying will get the feeling of your competence in that particular niche and your chances would brighten up. Today the companies not only check and test the core knowledge of the discipline in the candidate but also observe whether the individual is aware and capable of handling the latest software tools for solving the financial and accounting problems. Everything today is getting integrated with the software applications and programmes on which a finance or accounts person works and it is obvious that a knowledge on that would be a great advantage in seeking a related job. So keep the IT aspect always in mind when acquiring some new skills.
Knowledge is power.
