About Campus Interviews to recruit Newly Qualified Chartered Accountants

An initiative in that effect remains the Campus Placement Programme (held twice a year) that provides a platform to both the Newly Qualified Chartered Accountants (NQCAs) and the organizations looking for to hire the best available talents to fulfill their Human Resource requirement. ICAI simply acts as a facilitator to bring the recruiter and NQCAs together.
