Role Description

Shadowing 3 different PwC workers in 3 different days,

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I really enjoyed my PwC women in business in the Reading Deals department! I got to spend 1 day in each section, where my mentor let me ask them as many questions as I liked! One day my mentor even took me into Reading town to show me round, which was very kind of her.
