Salina Dharamsi

Campus Talent Acquisition Senior Manager, PwC Canada

I grew up in Vancouver and completed an undergraduate degree in accounting at the University of British Columbia. Afterwards, I pursued the Master of Professional Accounting degree at the University of Saskatchewan and received the CPA, CA, CSR-P and CPHR designations.

Currently, I lead Campus Talent Acquisition for PwC Canada and am responsible for campus strategy, delivery and onboarding for ~950+ hires a year. My role is the perfect blend of my passion for developing people to their full potential and recruiting the best and brightest students into the firm.

More about Salina

What is your personal brand?

Authenticity is at the heart of success and my personal brand is all about making meaningful connections with colleagues and students and discovering what makes each person’s story unique. I look forward to hearing your story when we meet next!

What unique opportunities have you had with PwC?

I’ve had the opportunity to develop and refine a talent attraction and identification strategy for our various entry points and programs and recruit for all of our lines of service. I’ve also been able to represent PwC at several events, including a conference focused on providing a forum for women aiming for senior leadership.

I’ve also met a wide array of PwC professionals from new associates to the CEO and many of our Team PwC Olympic athletes. I have a true passion for professional services and students and love that the student experience continues to be at the forefront of my role.

 

What are your hobbies and interests?

I love all things travel and community! Volunteering in Guatemala, India, Japan, Rwanda, South Africa and Switzerland opened my eyes to the power of diversity in thought and experiences and how much of an impact we each have on the people and world around us. I also enjoy reading, backpacking, baking, campfires and a good ol’ fashioned BBQ.
