Achieveing personal growth while helping clients see real change.
New York, NY | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Opportunitiy to choose the industry I wanted to work in, my team, feedback process, courses available for personal training/development, informal networking opportunities/social events, hours/pay.


Downers

Formal networking opportunities were minimal.

Since I was always at the client, I rarely interacted with other interns.

Within industry, project assignment was random with little regard to intern skills/preferences.


Advice to Potential Interns

During your internship you will be required to be a people person. Whether and extrovert or introvert, ability to work in teams is critical with both your PwC team and the client. Real-time feedback is also encouraged so be ready to get some tough love throughout; it will lead to personal growth. Additionally, employers love interns who have analytical/deliverable-creation skills so very strong Excel and PowerPoint skills can really make your internship fantastic. Lastly, come here if you want to be in a specific industry (Finance, Healthcare), not a specific competency (operations, strategy, etc.) because that is the way that the company is set up. Also know that it is very difficult to switch from one industry to another once you start full time.


Sample Interview Questions

After receiving the case, one of the things I was asked was to provide a timeline with implementation steps to my recommendations.


Advice to Management

Since within an industry, interns are placed on random projects, interns should receive more formal opportunities to get to know other aspects of that industry. For example, in Finance if you are placed on an insurance company, but were always interested in consulting an asset management firm, you should be able to formally network with that group.

Advice to Potential Interns

Make as many connections as possible and have fun during your internship. At the same time always ask questions and have a good attitude.

Hosting more events so that interns can get to know their fellow interns better. Once at the client site, it was hard to meet other interns.
