    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Throughout the three day placement, we were given buddies who worked at PwC and essentially acted as handlers. This buddy acted as a point of contact for us who we were able to debrief with each day and speak to on a regular basis in order to plan which activities and interactive sessions we wished to take part in. We were able to shadow this buddy and listen in on some confidential client call to gain a deeper insight of the area of the business they worked in which was great.
