I have cleared my CMA final in first attempt Nd I m also CS but still none of the companies in Mumbai campus have selected me....what can be the reason??? I don't have any experience ...I just did my training under both the courses...soo can dis be the reason for not selecting me???



Dear Komal

Sorry for the late reply. I missed your post.

Now coming to answer, Yes you are right, you must get shortlisted by the companies coming to campus. Even I am shocked at not finding your name. As per me the below can be the reasons for not shortlisting you

1. You had mentioned that you CMA and CS both. So, companies may be thinking that you are overqualified for the said post and company can't afford to pay you for both degrees.

Yes, this is happening in the organization. I will not name it but in one of the esteem organization in India, hire CA guy at superior post than CMA guy. If a person is both CA and CMA then they do not hire them saying they are overqualified.

Now, you will be confused...Why is this happening in the Organization?

The answer is to maintain their control. Just suppose, if they hire the CA guy for the post of CMA then in future, there will be no difference between CA and CMA. People will say CA and CMA are doing the same job. So, in the big organization to maintain the standard of their profession they indirectly do not hire the CMA students.
Just to maintain their superiority then do not hire CMA students with CA degree.

2. It seems that this time company has not shortlisted more students for the campus interview. During our times, 80 to 100 students were selected for the first round and then based on the interview they are reduced to two to three person.
But this time it seems that companies are shortlisting only a few students for the campus.
The previous Interviews were so generic, everyone was given chance at first round but this time the campus seems to be more specific and only a few students are selected

3. To be frank, there are the organizations who do the shortlisting based on the Gender basis. They shortlist the only male students who can stay the late night in the organization. So, being a girl they have not shortlist you.

4. Your Resume can also be one of the reasons for not getting shortlisted. Maybe they do not find the required qualities in your resume. It may also possible that you had not presented well in your resume. Remember, it is not possible for the organization to manually checked resume of 1000s of students and they shortlist them. They simply download the dump from your institute and based on some filter they shortlisted the students from the list.
So, it may be possible that they were looking for the students with CMA degree and when they filter the data in excel sheet, your name does not appear in the list because you are both CMA and CS as well. This is the why i always say not to display your addttional degree in the campus.

I can help you more if you share your resume with me. Please share your resume ( deleting contact information) with us for more information on what mistake you had made in the resume.


Thank you for your reply ....but there are students who are CA , CS and CMA ,still they have shortlisted them. Infact vedanta, ITC and many companies have  dis time shorlisted the students who have cleared their finals in more than 2 terms.
I dont know what wrong with me . I have attached the resume. If none of the companies have shortlisted my name yet , can i still go for the  walk in interviews ???

This is also strange to me. If you had cleared your CMA in the first attempt then you must get shortlisted by the companies. To be frank, even I am shocked. Really, I don't know why you did not get shortlisted. Maybe there would be some criteria where you would not fall and get rejected.

But after going through your resume I would like to share three things ( which can be the reasons for not shortlisting you). Assuming this time companies coming to campus wants to hire only a few students, below may be the reason for not shortlisting you.

1. From your resume, it seems that you are married. Companies generally do not prefer married women for the corporate jobs. This is because Married Women can't stay the late night in the office.
2. You are saying that you had cleared your CMA in the first attempt but it is not visible from your resume. Looking your resume no one can say that you had cleared your CMA in the first attempt.  Remember, HR Manager will not sit and analysis your resume and shortlist you. This is generally done by a trainee in the organization. He/She carry out this activity based on an instruction given to him/her. No one is free to use their mind for you.
3. It may also that companies want to hire few students and for that, they had decided certain criteria where you got failed.

Please Note, the above reasons are just my observation. It may also possible that you may get rejected because of the negligence of the manager.


If you are really in need of job then go for the campus. There are the chances that you get selected by the companies in their walk-ins. Private Companies or Public Companies like TCS go for the walk-ins if they do not find a suitable candidate from the shortlisted students.

Further, this time there is a greater chance of Walk in Interview. Since few students are shortlisted for the campus they will have plenty of time to take the walk-in interview.

Please Note: The chances of Walkins will always be less than 1%. Go to campus only if you are really in need of the job. Otherwise, do not waste your time and money.
