My Journey at Seshachalam & Co

My Journey at our firm has been a well-travelled one. Initially, as an article at Sesco began a sequence of career shaping experiences opening my thoughts towards work, the nature of it, the process involved, methods, all of these have been in a different yet exemplary way which is focused beyond just plain accounting procedures. As any article ,at Seshachalam & Co, I too had the good fortune of learning under all our partners and working for prestigious clients in each field which has also contributed greatly in professional growth and in me becoming a CA in my very first attempt. My brief stint away from Seshachalam & Co has made me realize the importance of the cohesive nature of work that is pursued here. Sesco is a firm where the focus has always been to learn on the job and all over partners have always inspired new insights towards auditing, taxation, financial services and advisory. As a Chartered Accountant, I’m always encouraged to pursue audits with my ideas offering a great deal of independence and meaningful insight from my colleagues. Recently, work commenced on international audit has opened a new dimension in my professional practice. I’ll be eternally grateful towards my work family at Seshachalam & Co for all the wonderful memories I have made and continue to make each day.

My Journey at Seshachalam & Co

Pursuing articleship in a firm which has been in the service for 64 years and counting is an achievement in itself. I’m fortunate to have successfully completed my 3 years of articleship training at Seshachalam & Co (Sesco), which helped me gain immense knowledge and exposure in the field of Taxation, Auditing, Management Consultancy Service (MIS), regulatory compliance procedures and other statutory compliances. Our Senior partner, Sri T. Seshachalam has always been a role model to the young trainees as he demonstrates the importance of ethics in our professional endeavours. I’m grateful that I was given the opportunity to work under his guidance and to have gained his valuable insights. Our Managing partner, Mr.T. Bharadwaj is a great mentor to all the trainees. He has not only helped me throughout my journey at Sesco, but also has been a constant source of guidance in my personal life. I admire the way he set a precedent in how to interact with the clients and to build an ever-lasting bond with them. He also organised an annual outing for us where we got to play cricket and many more exciting extra-curricular activities which contributed to a positive aura among us. Our Partner-Taxation, Mr. Prabhu has spent lot of time in training very patiently . He has not only been a good mentor but also a great friend. I have been fortunate to be a part of audits across the country involving different audits. The firm is constantly expanding in and has also made its presence in the country of Sri Lanka. At Sesco, the trainees are constantly guided by experienced Partners and efficient Managers which help them transform into skilled professionals. The bond among the trainees is commendable as we always lend a helping hand which contributes to a healthy work environment. Finally, the best part of articleship is the friends that I have made here. We have developed a great bond and are in constant touch even after the completion of training period and most of them have been successfully placed in various reputed companies and are excelling in their professional career. To conclude, Sesco has moulded me from an introvert teenager to an intellectual professional and I shall be forever grateful for it.

My Journey at Seshachalam & Co

"Articleship period is the most important foundation for every Chartered Accountant's career constituting 3 years of practical training out of 4.5 years of the course. Given how critical it is, after 3 years of my time at Seshachalam & Co., I can confidently say that I was fortunate to have been a part of the firm.   In my term, I have been subjected to countless learning opportunities and challenges alongside continuous monitoring and review procedures, which have aid me to grow exponentially. The exposure and abundance of knowledge here has helped me overcome chronic stage fear with drastic improvements in my communication skills. The firm conducts invaluable training programs from time to time to continuously improve it's quality of work.   Not only is Seshachalam & Co. glorious in the field of work, it is also a culture rich firm. I have celebrated festivals right from Sankrati to Christmas including Talent hunt tournaments with the Sesco family.    If given an opportunity of going back in time and changing things, I would still prefer Sesco for my articleship. It's invariably the best place to be."     Thank you for all the opportunities and learnings.
