| Careers-> Cost Acounting
You enter a
Department store and buy a cake soap. The sales girl collects ten rupees as its price. Who
fixed the price as ten rupees ? You would have bought a television monitor for twenty
thousand, or automobile for three lakhs. How did the marketing executives arrive at these
prices. In fact it is not the marketing executive who fixed these prices, but a finance
professional well-versed in the process of costing. This is the province of the cost
accountant. He has several other functions as well, the details of which we shall discuss
In India the professional is known as the cost and works Accountant. In
several other countries the title cost and Management Accountant is more
The Institute of Cost and Works Accountants of India had its beginning as a limited
company in 1944, under the provisions of the Companies Act. The Institute has, during its
history spread over half a century, played a signal role in the development of
manufacturing industries and commercial enterprises. In recognition of the significance of
the profession, Government of India accorded statutory status to the Institute, through
the cost and works Accountants Act 1959. Further, in 1964 the companies Act 1956 was
amended, introducing provisions for the statutory maintenance of cost accounting records
in select core industries and the audit of such records by qualified cost and management
accountants. In 1982, the central government created an all India cadre known as Indian
Cost Accounts Service to advise the government on fiscal matters.
The significance of the profession has increased substantially as a consequence of the
recent trends in liberalization, privatization, and globalization in India. The skills of
cost and Management Accountants can be gainfully utilized for steering the economy of
industrial and commercial enterprises through the most advantageous paths. The realm of
the profession can be extended to the emerging areas of audit pertaining to energy and
The functions of a cost accountant
are not limited to keeping accounts, or maintaining their accuracy. They cover a wide
range of activities including evaluation of worth in investments, critical analysis of
financial performance of organization, co-ordination of activities in the various
departments of industrial or commercial undertakings, and advice to management on matters
of finance. Costing of products and services, enveloping methods of cost-reduction with
the help of management information systems, modifying the styles of business operations
based on principles of costing, effective inventory control, cost audit, internal audit,
and audit of plant performance fall under the duties of cost and works accountants. Basic
data for the redesigning of plant operations and processes are often provided by the cost
accountant. He has a crucial role in project management, control of operations, and
strategic management of funds. Monitoring and analysis of data, and wise budgeting are
important in ensuring quality in corporate performance. Cost and management accountancy is
intimately interwoven into the fabric of management.
The significant role played by the cost accountant in achieving business objectives is
being appreciated more and more. This has opened up superior opportunities to him, which
can take him even to the highest rung in the professional ladder in the corporate sector.
Several members of the Institute of Cost and Works Accountants occupy top management
positions such as Managing Director, Financial Controller, Marketing Manager, Chief
Internal Auditor. Key positions are available also in Central and State Governments. There
is an all India cadre under the Central Government the Indian Cost Accounts

The nineties is undoubtedly the
decade of the women. There is no avenue she has not trodden on, no obstacle she has not
overcome and no job that is still taboo for her. Todays women has scaled every peak,
both literally, and figuratively.
Barely two decades ago, most women
did not work unless it was to while away the time before getting married, or for financial
reasons. But today most women pursue a career not for these reasons, but for the challenge
and satisfaction a job provides. There are no taboos any longer against working women. It
is this transformation in the social scene that has enabled women to rightly take their
place as contributing partners in the workplace, pouring into the economy an immense flow
of brain power and energy. Despite the progressive attitudinal change, it is significant
to note that barely 32% of the total working population are women. Here too, it may come
as no surprise that a large percentage constitute unskilled labour, and less than one
percent of the total working womens population in India holds coveted corporate job.
A recent survey reported that twice
as many women work full time and part time now as compared to ten years ago. Perhaps what
is even more indicative of the trend, and what illustrates the ambition of young women
today, is that there are many more girls enrolling for college education today that ever
before. It is also an education with a goal in mind-most young women anticipate a life
that will bring an interesting and financially rewarding job. What is of importance is
that their expectations of job opportunities are remarkably similar to those of young men
with the same academic achievement.
Higher education has continued to
play an important role in preparing women meet entry level requirements for jobs. Young
girls recognise the fact that college or university attendance is a necessary prerequisite
for most of the sought after careers.
Due to gender stereotyping or
societal influences, most girls still opt for subjects that are less vocationally
relevant. As a consequence, many girls do not opt for courses in physical sciences and
engineering. The numbers of girls in engineering colleges is still minimal, although this
is changing too.
Traditional Career roles
Traditionally the careers for women
have been largely in the hospitality sector, in personal services, as air hostesses or
beauticians, in teaching, catering, selling and clerical jobs, where the intrinsic
personal qualities of women are among the requirements for the career. Whatever the field,
it remained mainly a job and not a career which could be fulfilling and satisfying. But in
recent years, women have pushed for greater challenges, making progressively strides in
enlarging the scope and ambit of these careers, and entering areas which hitherto were
largely male domains.
Hoteliering today for both men and
women covers wide range of specialised jobs from housekeeping and cooking, to the more
high profile hotel management, and guest relations. Other successful careers for women
have been in personal services. These include beauty and hairdressing, which no longer is
contained within the environs of a beauty parlor. With the growth of the fashion
business, and the spurt in marketing, advertising and television, beauty today is big
business . Fashion shows, fashion photography, theatre, exhibitions , presentations,
wardrobe and makeup for films and television and so on have catapulted beauticians and
hair-dressers to exalted heights and those with talent and perseverance can have extremely
rewarding careers. In addition, with a growing awareness of health and fitness, beauty
specialists are enlarging the scope of their services by setting up health clubs, fitness
gyms and clinics.
The fashion world gives full play to
creative instincts and where it is combined with entrepreneurial instincts and financial
skills, women have been able to complete effectively with men in this arena. A case in
point is Modeling, where women have proved to be indispensable.
Careers in Mass Communication :
An area of about equal prospects for both sexes is journalism. Journalism is ideally
suited to those women with a flair for writing, an ability to express ideas concisely, and
a curiosity about people and events around them. Of course a certain resilience and
courage is necessary, but that is often acquired on the job.
In an age when image consciousness
holds the key to success, public relations is yet another area where women can do
extremely well. Public Relations is an image building exercise that can apply to anything
from companies and products to people, projects or ideas. Its main components are social
contact and communication. Perhaps for this reason it is perceived as a glamorous career
and has attracted imaginative and ambitious young women. However, it is in some of the
non-traditional areas that women have made significant strides. Advertising was once a
male preserves, but offers today an exciting and challenging career to any young,
hard-working and ambitious women. This is an industry where rewards are directly
commensurate with initiative displayed and results achieved. Ambitious women can therefore
rise quickly to the top.
Until a few years ago, banking and financial services were male-dominated careers,
where few women made it beyond middle level executive positions. However, as more women
choose to pursue professional studies, the ratio is beginning to change. Private sector
banks, merchant banking departments and corporate financial services are areas that have
accepted trained and competent women, particularly in the marketing sections where the
emphasis is on the ability to relate to customers, identity their needs and promote the
banks services. As more female students enroll in professional financial training
programs, careers like chartered accountancy are offering attractive prospects for women
with numerical ability and financial acumen.
It is the area of business management that is currently generating the maximum appeal.
Female enrolment in MBA courses in some institutions is as high as 40% of the total
classroom strength. In this achievement oriented profession where results count more than
anything else, women managers with their inherent inter-personal skills are being slowly
accepted and appreciated. Among the various functional areas of management it is marketing
and human resource development where women tend to be more successful. This could be
largely due to the fact that women have some intrinsic qualities, such as a better
understanding of human nature, and a greater empathy with others, an interest in social
and economic trends, good communication skills and an ability to get along with people
that leads to a better handling of the job.
Careers in Government
The civil services has always provided equal opportunities for all, due to the
guarantees provided in the constitution. There are also special provisions for women in
support of their joining the work force. But the number of female officers in the civil
services is still comparatively low, although often the toppers in the civil services
examinations are women. These services provide excellent, secure and satisfying career
opportunities for women with the right attitude.
As the civil services cover practically every field of enterprise, from administration,
education, welfare, accounts, railways, information, to science and technology forestry,
trade, commerce and international relations, it provides vast opportunities for women with
a sense of responsibility and idealism and an ability to handle power and authority and
take decisions that can affect the lives of millions. The career levels in the civil
services are formally structured and follow a system of grades and seniority. It takes
time and experience to get to the top ranks. However, in many of the services the early
years of an Officers career are spent in postings to places they would never
ordinarily get to see, handling vast responsibilities and living a lifestyle that in most
other careers would be impossible at a junior level. From examples of women who have
joined the civil services and made it to senior posts, it is evident that the country
needs many more women with motivation and commitment in the civil services.
Although women have been traditionally recruited in the armed forces in the medical and
nursing corps, today all three services offer a satisfying career in other fields too.
There is a womens Special Entry Scheme (officers) for women graduates in specified
subjects and between 19-27 years of age.
The Indian Navy was the first among the services to induct women in its noncombatant
cadres. Unmarried graduate women are eligible for the Short Service Commission of 7 years,
extendable for 10 years, in the logistics, law and air traffic control cadres in the
Executive branch. There are opportunities for women in the educational branch for which
the academic requirement is a Masters degree.
There are increasing numbers of women in non-combatant areas in the Army too, including
the Army Service Corps, Ordnance Corps, Education Corps, Signals, Electrical and
Mechanical Engineers, the Judge, Advocate Generals branch and the Army Intelligence
Corps. Women are selected after graduation and through the Services Selection Board
followed by medical tests.
The Indian Air Force accepts women into certain branches, such as the technical and ground
duty branches. Since 1992, women pilots have also been inducted into the air-force on
non-combatant duties. Selection for pilots is through a pilot aptitude test as part of the
SSB interview exercise. For those with a penchant for flying, here is a career where only
the sky is the limit.
Careers in non-traditional fields
Another highflying career for women is as a commercial pilot with a civil airline. In
recent years, the national and international airlines have been recruiting women pilots
for their commercial aircrafts. Becoming a pilot is an expensive exercise, and can
cost anywhere from around Rs.6-15 lakhs for professional training and the compulsory
flying experience. But this expense can be considered an investment for those wishing to
make flying a career, as once employed, most pilots are paid handsomely enough to recover
the investment. One of the largest organized economic activities in the country is
building and construction which has not attracted many women, but could provide another
lucrative career. The construction industry sustains one of our basic needs that of
shelter and so commands the highest employment potential. This is an industry which
involves architects who design the buildings, town and country planners who ensure the
best utilization of land, civil engineers who convert the architects, designs into
reality, as well as contractors, draughts men, surveyors, and a range of skilled craftsmen
for setting up and finishing the building. So far women have confined themselves to the
role of architects. But as the construction industry becomes more organized, and there is
sufficient work in urban centres, job options in the building and construction industry
are becoming more attractive for women, particularly in the area of self-employment.
Interestingly the careers that have always been widely accepted as male-preserves are
those in which women are doing rather well. These are the engineering and technology
options - Particularly, in disciplines such as computers, information technology,
environmental engineering, dairy technology and food processing, plastics and
telecommunications. However, while the number of women in engineering colleges has
improved, career wise, women engineers appear to prefer going into academics and research
rather than into industry. But this too, is slowly changing.
Dairy technology and food processing in this age of processed foods has been on the
upswing in the changing socio-economic environment and growing demand for convenience
foods. Women with their basic domesticated attitudes fare well in an area which requires
planning, improving, supervising and handling various foods both in their raw and packaged
forms. The industry therefore provides ample opportunities to women with an academic
background in chemistry, biotechnology and dairy technology, particularly as it has
attracted the third largest investment after the power and oil sectors and will continue
to need trained professionals.
The biggest challenge for the women of the nineties lies in the area of
entrepreneurship. It is not always possible for women to go out to work. There are
domestic demands and family pressures that have prevented women even those with impressive
qualifications from taking up a job. But staying at home does not necessarily mean dealing
with household chores alone. Women today are tapping their entrepreneurial spirit to set
up efficiently run home-based business, create and market innovative products, provide a
range of services such as tuition bureaux or placement agencies, supply plants, design web
pages, conduct cookery classes and so on, and even run manufacturing units.
While earlier, women preferred to start a business in traditional areas like handicrafts,
food products and the beauty business, todays woman has gained the confidence and
the expertise to venture into new and lucrative fields such as floriculture,
bio-technology, agro-processing, herbal cosmetics, computer software, leatherwear, and
gems and jewellery.
In fact, this is an avenue where much support is available for any woman willing to take
the plunge. Various organizations like the National research and Development Corporation
and the Department of Science and Technology help women develop new project ideas into
viable commercial ventures. There are also entrepreneurship training organizations such as
the National Institute for Entrepreneurship and Business Development in New Delhi, the
Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India near Ahmedabad, and the small Industry
Extension Training Institute at Hyderabad.
The training programs involve psychological tests which help women assess their ability
to take risks and disposition for entrepreneurship. They also provide information and
guidance on how to prepare feasibility reports, fill in application forms, set up
infrastructural facilities and apply for financial assistance. Various banks and financial
institutions provide financial assistance at reduced rates of interest to encourage women
entrepreneurs, while women themselves are banding together in associations, or setting up
non-governmental organizations to help and encourage other women.
Economic liberalization and the new freedom mantra have thrown open a new world of market
opportunities for women. There is virtually no field of enterprise that women cannot
enter, and fewer restrictions and pressures. So the time is right for women to put their
skills and talents to good use and to follow their instincts in carving out a rewarding
and successful career.
