Before your assignment starts, you'll have your own mentor at home and a buddy awaiting you overseas— in many cases "EPIC graduates" themselves who'll understand the support, information and attention you'll need. They'll both get to know you prior to your departure to smooth the transition, while a partner in your home and host country will help drive your career development.
International assignments present an exciting prospect—but they're also challenging. The EPIC programme is open to PwC people who have demonstrated excellent performance, along with the desire and commitment to gain international experience early in their career.
You can achieve what you want—in your life and in your work. So, make your career choice EPIC.
