What would you gain from this award?

Through our internship programme, we hope to provide you with an immersive learning experience in PwC. This will be an opportunity to learn about what we do behind the scenes, so that you can choose the career path that best suits you.

You will be able to build on your foundation obtained from university to improve analytical capabilities and logical reasoning. This allows you to interpret complex issues in a concise manner.

  • Awardees will gain insights and exposure through projects during their internship.
  • Through the internship and mentorship sessions with the coaching team, you will get to know your strengths and areas of development.
  • You will be able to develop EQ skills required to better motivate, empathise and work together with other team members.

Apart from the work that you do, you are also encouraged to be involved in various activities within the firm to build your network and foster relationships with people beyond your team. Some activities include corporate responsibility initiatives, Firm wide TGIF, sports and networking events.

At the end of this programme, we hope that you will be able to take away valuable insights and experience what life is like working at PwC. Depending on your performance during your internship and the needs of the business, you may then be offered a permanent role with PwC as an Associate.
