Develops a Professional Attitude –

Our posture, our way to talking with the people, our presence of mind when client is asking some query but we are not aware of such thing, the way we are representing our team in front of the Board of Directors, the way we are handling the deadlines, the way we are handling the multiple tasks, and also the patience level we maintain while handling the tough situations, this all judge our behaviour, our attitude and our personality. Articleship taught us all such things.

Learn to Manage Time –

It has been said that if you can manage your time during articleship, you can manage anything. The schedule of a CA student during their articleship is actually beyond words.
