Community involvement is very dear to me so I was hoping you could tell me a little bit about the PwC foundation and how it relates to you personally. I know PwC encourages employees to participate in volunteer initiatives and rewards diligent volunteers with a donation to the charity of their choice and it also offers valuable tools such as the volunteer continuum. How has this impacted your experience with PwC?

I just wanted to ask regarding the recruitment process. Since I am a graduate, does PwC prefer people who have already passed some of the CA exams or people who have work experience in a firm?

Good evening everyone. Thank you PwC for taking time to chat with everyone. (I am currently in the Netherlands hence the "good evening") I am from the Windsor area and am inquiring what to expect engagement wise regarding clients in the GTA, being a larger market.

@Ahmad Great, so we review your resume and we generally conduct interviews on campus where we look to assess your soft skills (team work, project management etc) and your knowledge of PwC.
by james.x.davidson9/19/2012 8:05:55 PM
Hello Roian! Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, we do not offer Strategy consulting roles in Canada as it is only offered in the UK. However, in Canada, we do offer a full-time role in Management consulting.

I have a simple question, I was unsuccessful in finding a Articling Job when I graduated university. I applied for the Exemption the ICAO was offering and I passed my CKE and SOA and recently finished writing my UFE as of last week and I am very confintant I passed since I studied very hard and took the PASS course. I just wanted to ask where would be a good idea to start finding a job either with PWC or another firm and any other tips you could provide me so that I can successfully find a CA articling position. Thanks!
