    It has been a whirlwind of a year since qualifying CMA USA in last and navigating through a pandemic in the hunt for a job as a fresher. After completion of CMA, I was not even able to apply for a job. Can’t imagine how worst was my situation. Then as a gem, I heard about First Career Program (FCP) from my CMA tutor Alex Tom Joseph. But I was in a dilemma and then I thought of the best quote I have heard in my entire life. If someone gives you an amazing opportunity, you better grab it first so that he wants to give you the next one. “So, then I finally decided to go with the Plan To Join with FCP Program.  To my surprise with gods grace everything went well and it was one of the best timely decisions that I had taken in my life because Geevar and Alex always ensured to give us the best training capsules challenged with hands-on experience that we ever had, with the practical application of what we had studied in our professional student career. Now, I am beyond excited to announce that I have accepted a new innings with EY as Analyst. So, a huge thank you to the Invisor Education team for their great support in building me from behind and Special cheers to Geevar Thambi, CMA, CSCA, Alex Tom Joseph, CMA, Muhammed Shafeeque and Muhammed Thwoyyib for giving me such an amazing experience at FCP and for moulding me for what Im today.

After applying at so many companies I didn't even got a response from them, it caused so much frustration in myself. Then I heard about First career program from my CMA tutor Alex Tom Joseph, CMA . He told me about what all are provided in this training program but I was actually double minded whether to join or not join. But then I thought to give it a go, So I joined there half-heartedly. To my surprise everything went well and it was one of the best decision that I had took in my life because Geevar and Alex always ensured to give us with the best training experience that we ever had, with the practical application of what we had studied in our professional courses.

    After completing my CMA course the lockdown was imposed in India due to pandemic. When there was a break in lockdown I started looking for a job, almost 5, 6 months I send mails, applied through career sites, job portals, but there was no response from the other end most of the time. I only had one or two interview in which the salary was too low compared to market standards. Then I heard about First career program (FCP) provided by Invisor Global Inc. First I thought it's just a intern programme where most of the companies hire freshers and let them settle the pending files. I contacted Invisor team and they told me it's not what actually looks like and they gave all the information about the FCP, and I decided to join the program, which was a turning point in my life. During the internship period itself I got an offer from Entigrity Solutions Pvt Ltd which is a leading consulting firm mainly dealing with US and Canadian clients I joined here as an Associate - Customer service. Thanks to the entire Invisor team for the support.

    Hello Everyone, I would like to share an exciting journey I experienced after I completed my Certified Management Accountant course. Since I was a fresher, it was pretty hard for me to find a job in MNCs or any companies for that matter. I applied for so many positions which only got rejected because of my lack of technical experience which lead to frustration and disappointment.  It was then that I heard about First Career Program from my CMA tutor Alex Tom Joseph, CMA. He went through what will be provided in this program and I was immediately interested in it. I should say it was one of the best decisions I made to help my career because Geevar Thambi, CMA, CSCA, and Alex Tom Joseph, CMA always ensured to give us the best training experience that we ever had, with the practical application of what we had studied in our professional courses. Because of the training I received there, I was able to secure a good job at Consero Global, one of the leading financial institutions. So, I would like to thank Alex Tom Joseph, CMA, Geevar Thambi, CMA, CSCA, and Muhammed Shafeeque for giving such amazing experience and training at FCP and for helping me secure a good job at a well-reputed company.

    After completing the CMA exams, I didn’t have any idea about how to apply for the job and get into an MNC. At that time Alex Tom Joseph and Geevar Thambi, CMA, CSCA has invited me for the First Career Program at Invisor Global Inc. , which changed my professional life. The training improved my knowledge in accounting and got a crystal clear picture of a company's working culture. Thank you team Invisor for making us a perfect working professional.
