Advisory Intern Interview

Advisory Intern

I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – Heavily recruits from my school so there were already many opportunities to network with the representatives. Everyone was incredibly nice and easy going. The first-round interview was just a conversation, with the occasional question about activities at school. Final round included the case presentation, however the questions asked were very predictable. The final interview was also incredibly focused on the conversations.

Interview Question – What skills that you learned from outside academics can you bring to the table?   Answer Question

Forensic Advisory Intern Interview

Forensic Advisory Intern
New York, NY

I applied through college or university - interviewed at PwC in October 2013.

Interview Details – I've networked with the recruiter prior to applying. Then, I submitted my application online through my university's career services website, then had a campus interview, then went to new york for the second round interview where I interviewed with 3 people. They told me they would let me know in a week but I found out a couple days later.

Interview Question – There was a case study that involved a fictitious financial services firm. But the information was given to me a day in advance and I could prepare. They didn't give you the questions ahead of time though. So one interview was on the case study and the other two were nontechnical, personality questions. No real surprises.   Answer Question
