My internship at PwC started about 6 months ago within the Management Consulting team. I never had thought I could improve my skills so much over such a short period of time. I was able get an insight on the daily work of a management consultant - the desired field of my future profession.
I feel that it is a great opportunity to work on projects that challenge me every day professionally while at the same time it doesn't really seem like working anymore, since I enjoy what I do. With PwC I am not a just another intern out of the thousands that work in the consulting world every day, but I am treated as an equal member of the team - this motivates me and all of us day-by-day in creating real value. A great team, working environment, international projects: just the top of the list of the reasons why I can only recommend PwC to anyone with a spark for consulting!
I’ve been a Finance intern at PwC for 9 months.Why I loved and still love working here?
Because I gain valuable professional knowledge, I work with really nice and helpful people. I had flexible working schedule so I had time also for my studies. As an intern I had the chance to apply for a graduate position so now I'm an Audit Associate.
Ask thoughtful questions and soak up information. Actively listen and take notes when receiving instruction. If you are in doubt, ask again.
Be willing to take on any task assigned no matter how small. In certain positions, excelling at the basics can lead to getting more responsibilities.
Ask your manager how you’re doing. What could you do differently? What could you do better? Are you meeting the goals of the organization? Once you have that feedback, use it for your development.
Observe how others in the office act, and mirror that. If employees modulate their voices when others are on the phone, modulate yours. If they’re on time for meetings, you should always be on time, too. Is there a specific way of doing your assignments (say a preferred font or format)? Figure the norms out and follow them. These details may sound trivial, but they’ll help you stand out from other interns.
This is your chance to build relationships with people at all levels. Get to know the other interns and they will grow with you in your career. Get out from behind your desk and get to know the people in your office.
Continue the relationships you’ve built after the internship ends. The truth is that sometimes getting an interview or job is about who you know or about what your former managers say about you. So keep in touch.
