Experiential learning through interaction and networking with other professionals, challenging tasks, and team building activities
Minneapolis, MN | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people with whom I got to work - everyone was willing to talk and give advice to the interns before we graduate from college and start our careers in the professional world.


Downers

Honestly, nothing. Sometimes I wish there was more to do, but summer is always a little less busy at public accounting firms, depeding on your line of service and group.


Advice to Potential Interns

Know the organization before you interview. Investigate the numerous opportunities that lie in PwC. Take the time to network with individuals across the company, not only in your own office. Be willing to help out and step out of your comfort zone.
