cajobportal.com™ is India’s first recruitment website exclusively for CAs. During interaction with CA freshers, they realized that just a fraction of them could ace jobs in the competitive ICAI’s campus placement process. The rest lacked on communication skills, took multiple attempts etc. Some of them relied on friends and relatives to channelize resumes and even the conventional consultants had no specific focus on this space. This led to the genesis of cajobportal.com in Aug’13.
“Through our start up, we took commoditization in the finance human capital space head-on, adding value through segmentation and customisation.”

*Sonia pursues cajobportal.com full time, leading Operations and Business Development while Anurag, being the sole bread-winner in the family is engaged in a job and supports Sonia on Strategic Initiatives beyond office hours.
In spite of being a top performer, Sonia had struggled to find a job for herself in Kolkata after her break from the Deloitte, due to marriage and maternity. She realised how difficult it could be for talented women to find work in the corporate world under specific personal situations. When she got involved full-time into cajobportal.com to head Operations & Business Development, the past experience resulted in her recruiting only females for the team. They operate as an all women ‘Work from Home’ setup – girls, who, need to stay at home and work in trust on their cloud based collaborative platform.
