Now, please don't take this as a benchmark. This is a just a observation derived from the facts and figures published by the ICAI. Two of my friends, got placed at packages of 7 figures and that too in India.

Though your academics matter much, but when it comes to practical world, what matters much more is your talent and attitude of doing work. If you can prove to the company that you have the requisite skills to do the work, your chances of getting higher packages are very very high.

In campus interviews, you don't have the chance to negotiate the salary packages. But when it comes to off-campus ones, you hold a much better position if you have a positive and the best attitude.

So, go out and break the benchmarks, my CA buddies.
