I applied through college or university and interviewed at PwC.

Interview Details – I got accepted for the initial on-campus interviews through the application screening process. After the on-campus interview, I was got invited in-house. Make sure to be yourself throughout the whole process; it not only helps you in your chances of obtaining a job/internship, but it also helps the company know if you fit or not which, in turn, lets you know whether you want to work for the company or not.

Interview Question – Informal oral case study. I was caught by surprise, but it's really not that bad. Just stay focused and stay on topic.   Answer Question
