PwC has two internship programs, Advance and Start. Advance
includes professional internships for undergraduates and MBAs.
Start is an introductory internship which provides students the
opportunity to learn more about our firm while further developing
the skills necessary for success in the business world. PwC's
interns will be actively engaged in the PwC professional services
world, which we believe is the best learning environment. At the
completion of the internship, interns know what is expected of them
at PwC and will have had a glimpse of future opportunities for
professional growth and development. Interns are a vital part of
our business, and we continue to look for ways to enhance their
experience here to give them a realistic preview of what it is like

providing the interns a realistic job preview of both the
profession and PwC. The shadowing experience allows interns to
develop knowledge of all levels of the firm, gain insight to how
the roles and responsibilities vary, and strengthen connections and
build long lasting professional relationships.
Each year PwC provides select interns the opportunity to shadow
members of our US Leadership Team, including Bob Moritz, chairman
and senior partner of the US firm. This experience provided interns
the opportunity to understand leadership's vision for PwC US and
see the PwC Experience through leadership's eyes.
Interns live corporate responsibility by participating in
community service projects. For PwC, corporate responsibility is
about taking deliberate actions that highlight not only the
integrity that we take to our clients and to the marketplace every
day, but also the commitment we have to our people, our
communities, and the environment. Between Summer 2013 and Winter
2014, PwC interns completed 29,800 volunteer hours - the equivalent
of a full-time job for one person for 14 years!

their office, outside of their day-to-day responsibilities;
