What is your personal brand?

What is your personal brand?

A personal brand is extremely important as a campus recruitment professional because I am often the first person a candidate meets from PwC. I focus on authenticity, approachableness and advising those I work with. “If people like you they will listen to you, but if they TRUST you, they’ll do business with you”. I enjoy challenging myself and truly believe if you fall in love with the process, the results will come.

What unique opportunities have you had with PwC?

What unique opportunities have you had with PwC?

I love having the opportunity to network and learn from other PwC Professionals across the firm. Some of the unique opportunities I have had with PwC include traveling throughout the eastern region to coach and train staff on our campus recruitment selection process and working on special projects within the recruitment team to better align to our strategy. I also enjoy the social activities that the firm provides to employees. One of my favorites was playing on the Hockey Heros team with the Halifax office and raising over $20,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation!

PwC provides flexibility to staff to enjoy the things they are passionate about outside of work. In my spare time I teach spin at a local studio called SPINCO and love having the opportunity to help others reach their potential and test their limits.
