Careers and Placements

The FA Program is a career-oriented professional certification program. This career-orientation is built into the design and administration of the FA Program. The body of knowledge, curriculum design, education methodology, examination and grading process, all has a thrust on improving the skills for new career opportunities of the candidates.

Careers and Placements

The IFAP has an active placement program to assist the FAs in getting suitable placement. The IFAP constantly interacts with industry representatives at various forums including Seminars, Conventions, Executive Education Programs, etc and networks with them for placement of the FAs. As a part of the placement efforts, every year the IFAP placement team visits a number of potential employers and placement consultants and they are apprised of the level of knowledge and practical application skills acquired by FAs in various areas of finance and their utility to the organization as effective finance professionals.


The profiles of the FAs seeking placement assistance are made available to potential employers. The FA Membership Directory which covers the profiles of the FAs is extensively circulated among employers and placement agencies. Placement meets and workshops are part of our placement program.


All candidates who enroll into the FA Program will be provided guidance in career planning as they progress into the higher levels of the program. Through workshops and other career guidance support, the candidates get the opportunity to prepare well for the placement program and thus augment their chances for better placement. The IFAP believes that the entire placement exercise is a joint effort between IFAP and the candidates. While IFAP gives the guidance and support and networks with potential employers, the candidates have the responsibility to put in maximum possible efforts to get suitable placement.


Advocacy and standards development

Opportunities to influence decisions arise at various stages as the Government and international standards setting bodies formulate policy. Through providing credible and high quality submissions, and drawing on the knowledge and experience of the Institute’s members, the Institute has been able to make a contribution to policy development and standards setting in Pakistan, across the USA/Canada and internationally.

The public interest, rather than our member’s interest, forms the basis of all of the Institute’s advice. This approach is necessary if the Institute is to maintain its credibility.
