How can you make your studies and your preparations for life after university more effective?
The answer is to start doing a real job as quickly as possible. We believe that combining a part-time internship with your university studies will help you to develop much faster and with greater impact.
Being an intern at PwC means changing your mindset 180 degrees. From your first day, you will be part of a team that will count on your responsible support. Through your involvement in different projects, you will have the opportunity to hone your knowledge and skills, learn about new business practices and processes, and share your vision to improve team performance. You will start building your professional network right away by meeting market experts at lunchtime, participating in meetings, attending to clients and preparing yourself for a great start after university. Your PwC buddy and mentor will provide appropriate guidance along the way.
