Thanks to you all for taking the time to chat. I am a second year MBA student at the University of Alberta and have 4 years of management consulting experience at one of the Big Four. My question is: what sets a candidate apart during the interview stage of the recruitment process?
Hello there, I'm a graduating Actuarial Science major from the University of Waterloo. My question for you is: are there one or two key skills you rely on to keep you effective, when circumstances get tough?
Hi Ashley. Lots of good ways to learn more. A good starting point would be to look at the Consulting page of our corporate web site. Also our campus website has some great information to get you started. And keep asking questions today ... great opp to get informed.

Does aesthetics in the application (resume and cover letter format) matter in the hiring process? Are partners and senior leaders reading the application or is it strictly HR? What is the application process like?
Hello Everyone! My name is Taylor Banister, and I am a 4th year BCom student from the University of Alberta. My question is: what is the relative size of the Consulting service line at PwC nationally in comparison to the other service lines at the firm (ie. Assurance, Tax, etc.)?
Hello everyone! Thank you for organizing this session, I am so excited to be here. My name is Apollinariia Dunaeva, and I am a Master student et EDHEC Business School, France. Could you, please, tell me how international your teams are?
Hello everyone, I'm a current Business student at Western University in my graduating year. I'm very curious to know what the natural progression or exit opportunities for associates at PwC Consulting are after the 2-year FFTF program - would any of you have any insights into this? Thanks for your help and for hosting this chat!
I was just looking to get a sense of the kind of engagements the consulting division at PwC is involved in. Do you work on a lot of pure-play strategy engagements or is it more tilted towards operations and technology assignments?
Hi all, thank you for hosting the chat! Ariel, I'm a Marketing co-op student this semester in the Calgary office. I'm looking into consulting and would love to know how your background in marketing has assisted you in consulting.
Hi Darren, my name is Amanda MacDougall - thank you for taking the time to answer our questions today. I would love to know what you find the most rewarding about your job? Does this help set PwC apart from the competitors?
Hi everyone, thanks a lot for your time today! I am a Master of Management of Innovation graduate from the University of Toronto and am very interested in the FFTF program. I'm really impressed with the investment in personal development at PwC and was wondering if you could elaborate on the various mentoring/coaching opportunities (formal or informal) within this program.
And a second question I'm burning to ask - why was the 2-year rotational program developed as to rotate through all practices, from technology to S&O? Why not just focus on one practice and get deep functional expertise? Thanks so much!
Hi all, I'm a recent graduate from the BBA program (Finance concentration) at Wilfrid Laurier University. My question is: Typically how long is the length of each rotation within the Management Consulting program? Also do we typically have the option of choosing what industries we are interested in working with?
Hi all, I attended last week's info session at the Montreal office. A couple of points that stood out for me and I would like to follow-up on them. 1) Diversity. PwC is big on this one. Mr. Darren, could you share an example of a project where consultants from different backgrounds produced cross-pollination of ideas. I am trying to get a practical sense of it would feel like to work on such teams. 2) feedback. I know Francis from the Calgary office highlighted that. How is it applied at the PwC office. Is it through quarter reviews or more hands-on and continuous?
