Elevate Program FAQs

Can you tell me about the cost, travel and logistics of this event?
Elevate programs are hosted across the country. Students will attend a program in the office or market for which they received an offer.  Most Elevate programs are 1-3 days in length. Travel and accommodations will be provided by PwC depending on the individual program components and location. Details pertaining to program logistics will be communicated within the program invitation.

Can I change the line of service I want to pursue after attending Elevate?
The program is designed for you to dive deeper into the line of service you received an offer in, however you will also have the opportunity to network with professionals from other lines and learn more about their work. Should you want to pursue an internship in another line of service, discuss with your recruiter following the program.

What if I am not selected for an early internship offer? Does that limit my chances to intern or work for a firm like PwC?
Absolutely not! This is a very competitive process and we typically receive more applications than we can accommodate in the Elevate program. We strongly encourage you to apply to an internship during the standard application timeframe, as we cannot extend early internship offers to everyone. We recognize that this is one of the first steps in the recruiting process for many students -- look at it as the beginning, not the end.
