As part of PwC's Internship Experience, a select group of interns had the opportunity to shadow a member of the US Leadership Team.

For Erica it was an eye opening experience and one from which she learned a great deal. Erica remarks that this experience will be extremely important to her as she looks to build a career for herself after college.
