During a recent conversation, Klajdi Coka shared more on his experience at PwC Albania - while also providing valuable career and leadership advice.
What were your early years like?
I started working at PwC after finishing my studies in Accounting and Finance. Although I had been working during university, PwC was like a second school for me.
I was fortunate enough to work with some of the most professional and talented people from whom I had the opportunity to learn a lot.
What drew you to PwC?
Despite the fact that PwC is one of the most reputable companies in the world to work for, what attracted me to work for PwC was the fact that the team was young and one could tell from the start the professionalism.
How was your experience at PwC?
Working with different teams and different clients was the most enjoyable part of the job. There were great trainings for employees which helped during daily work and were useful towards future endeavours.
Any lasting lessons from your time at PwC?
People may think that technical skills are the strongest point one can benefit from at PwC, but all the trainings in regards to soft skills and people management were very helpful towards my future positions and business as well.
Reflecting on your career at this point, what makes you feel the most proud?
Looking back now, I am proud of the time I spent at PwC. I had the opportunity to learn things which I would not be able to learn anywhere else. I grew up professionally and personally. The best part is that I managed to turn wonderful colleagues into friends, which in fact are my best friends now, eight years later.
What do you think is most important in leadership?
Considering that I am a people person, I believe that what differentiates a leader from another is the ability to inspire others by being empathic.
What helpful career advice can you offer?
The experience you will gain at PwC will help you throughout your career. My advice would be to try to learn as much as you can while at PwC and never stop using the learning tools PwC has to offer.
If you could go back in time and tell your 18-year-old self something, what would it be?
I would tell myself to always do what is right and never stop acting with integrity.
