Why did you choose to work at PwC?

"I chose to start my career with PwC because they truly value the growth and success of their personnel. As transitioning military personnel, you are immediately set up with a professional development group consisting of a peer host, team coach/mentor, a Veteran mentor, and a relationship partner. These personnel genuinely care for your success in the firm and are in place to assist you with the transition from the military, while promoting your growth within the firm. It's comforting to know that you can contact anyone in the firm and they will proudly help you with any issues you may have. PwC is invested in their personnel and they ensure everyone has the proper support needed to grow personally and professionally."

As a JMO what capabilities have you provided PwC, the team and your client since joining the Firm?

"As an army officer, I frequently operated in dynamic environments with many unknowns, pursuing challenging and important missions. The skills that I developed to succeed in those circumstances help me manage competing priorities and challenging assignments daily at PwC, The same skills that made me a successful army officer enable me to produce results for clients and support my great colleagues."

Describe how you believe your experiences as a JMO are valued here at PwC.

"A successful career in the Firm is defined by performance against four behaviors: investing in relationships, sharing & collaborating, putting ourselves in each other's shoes, and enhancing value through quality. As a JMO, you have already been practicing these in your service to our country. These "soft skills" are valued by the Firm and have served as a differentiator within my group. Moreover, the Firm values my input and key senior leaders within my group have consistently sought my opinion on matters related to both marketing strategy and strategic direction. The same leadership skills that I developed on the battlefield and in other high–intensity situations are relevant and valued by PwC."

How have you been able to leverage your skills and background during engagements at PwC?

"When I started with the firm as an associate, I joined with many valuable management and leadership experiences that I gained while serving as a platoon commander in the Marine Corps during combat in Iraq. These experiences, although very different from the day to day life as an associate with the firm, have proved to be the foundation of my professional development and enabled me to continually add value to our clients and further develop other staff. Although initially I did not have all of the technical skills required on some projects, my background as a military officer allowed be to quickly develop these skills and bring a fresh perspective to our clients."

What was one piece of advice you wished the recruiter had given you during your transition from active duty to life at PwC?

"The one piece of advice I wish the recruiter had given me during my transition was to remind me how supportive the PwC family is of transitioning military personnel. The move from military to civilian lifestyle is not as simple as we all initially believe and sometimes involves complex situations requiring flexibility. PwC understands and respects the issues you will confront and is there to support in whatever capacity you desire."
