Recruiting 201: How to Approach Recruiting -- Our Campus Talent Acquisition Team's Perspective
Come to this one-hour chat to discuss your career journey. Our campus recruiters will answer your questions about the application and interview process, PwC Professional Talent Centre, networking tips and building your brand.
Hi everyone: My name is Natalie Henry, PwC Canada’s social media manager. I will help moderate today’s live chat on how to approach recruiting from the point of view our campus talent acquisition team. We will do our best to answer all of your questions.
I just recently graduated from York Uni. And am looking forward to starting of my career with Pwc. I know that Pwc is big on personal branding, which i think is an amazing campaign. But how are we supposed to integrate that into my cover letter and resume!
I have a question – After attending many recruitment events, I see most students going directly to the Managers and Partners and not speak with the Associates as much. Do you think speaking with everyone in the firm to get to know them, be a better approach at networking events?
Hey guys, my name is Emily and I'm a 1B student from the University of Waterloo. I was reading over the website and saw how the firm values excellence. I believe excellence is something we work toward and achieve after a period of time, but how would we convey that through our resume/CV?
Thanks for taking the time to hold this chat! To jump right in, I know there will be a rotation between tax and audit groups to accumulate working experiences (for entry level grad students). Is it alright to hold our commitment to a particular service group until after the rotation is finished? Assuming that we have yet to fully experience the different areas. If that's the case, how do we reflect that in our cover letter while coming across as uncertain about what we want in our career?
I know a large component of PwC is all about building your own personal brand, both in-person and online. While "marketing" your brand in-person through networking events is always rather straight forward, I am curious to know what are some effective ways to better market yourself online, apart from conventional means like Twitter and Facebook.
Hi everyone! Thank you for hosting this live q&a session. I'm actually finishing up my fourth year in waterloo accounting program. Q: How does pwc allow you to give back to the surrounding committee (I.e volunteer initiatives)? Thank you!
Something I love about PwC is the people and how friendly they are when it comes to networking. I find that it takes a while to really get the conversation going. Is there something that really resonates with PwC employees that can kickstart a conversation?
Having worked at the Confirmation Centre in the Assurance group at PwC Toronto Office–What would you suggest to make it stand out on my cover letter as value added experience to the firm? When applying for the full time associate position.
Sorry I think something went wrong with my message. I am a 4th year student at Ivey and I wanted to thank you all the PwC reps for your valuable time in answering our questions. I was wondering if you could share with me a ‘teach don’t tell’ experience that you have had at PwC.
hey everyone, thanks for taking the time to host, & I hope everyone is having a fantastic Summer! ...My question has to do with personal brand & conveying it at networking events, I feel like it may sound a bit like shameless promotion to get into the things you have been involved in, is it better to leave that kind of stuff for the resume / cover letter... & any tips on how to display your personal brand in a short amount of time? Thanks.
I've had friends tell me its important to spend all day at the National Recruit event handing out business cards while others have gone and only said hi to one or two firm reps. Do you think its important to put yourself out there and meet as many people as possible or would it be better to focus on making a few solid connections?
My first question today is about business cards at networking events. If we meet the same member of the recruiting team more then once, should we give them our business card every time? Does it leave more impression for the recruiting team?
