After a busy final week at PwC our Summer Internship has come to an end. The last week involved the client meeting Final, a trip to the Chartered Accountancy Institute and a day volunteering at Kerdiffstown House.
The final of our Friday project consisted of 3 teams pitching to three different clients– Google, CRH and Blackrock. Each team made a ten minute pitch to a panel, followed by a twenty minute Q & A section. We were nervous about the Q&A section because we couldn’t prepare answers in advance, but on the day the presentation ran smoothly and we were happy with our pitch. It was interesting to watch the other team pitches and to see the great work everyone had done over the past 8 weeks.
Our day volunteering at Kerdiffstown House was enjoyable. Everyone had a chance to do their bit for the community, and the visitors were delighted with the work we done around the grounds. It was a great opportunity for the interns to spend one of our last days together and we all had a great trip.
During our visit to the CAI we learnt about the path to becoming a chartered accountant. We were given the opportunity to speak to a number of individuals who had taken different routes and completed different degrees in order to become chartered accountants. We were then given a talk from a Chartered Tax Consultant, and she informed us on what exam path she had taken at PwC and how her career had progressed throughout the years.
