Employer Update: A message from Fairfield’s PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers) campus recruiter:

Hello and welcome back to Fairfield!

I hope everyone enjoyed some well deserved time off over the break!  I wanted to write with information on the PwC opportunities that are accepting applications this winter!  Also I will be on campus in the Kelley Center near the interview rooms 2 days next week for office hours:

OPEN OFFICE HOURS - Bring your resume for review, stop by to get more information about PwC (or accounting in general!), ask about opportunities available to you or just to say hi or introduce yourself!  I am there to help you and answer any questions you have! Everyone who shows up will be entered into a Super Bowl Raffle!  (Sadly, not to attend the game, but to win other fabulous prizes!) Here is when I will be there:

Wednesday January 30th

11am – 2:30pm, Kelley Center 
Friday February 1st

2pm-5pm, Kelley Center 

Most importantly, all applications will be due by February 15th!  You must apply on Fairfield’s Experience website (see career services for help) and also set up a PwC Talent Profile (directions are found in the Experience job descriptions and also by going to www.pwc.com/getstarted).

Here is some information about the different opportunities:

Explore
To be eligible for the Explore program (a one day experience), applicants must be at the Freshman or Sophomore level, with a GPA of 3.2 or higher. We are seeking students interested in considering a business or accounting-related major if not yet declared, or those looking for further information about careers in business and accounting. All students are encouraged to apply who have an interest in learning more about the dynamic world of professional services and where a career in public accounting can take you.

Start Internship 
The Start Internship is designed to introduce high performing under represented minority students in their Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior year to PwC. This is just the first step in the PwC internship experience, as during the summer of 2013 you will have an opportunity to intern with one of the firm’s internal services group, like Marketing, Recruiting, Information Technology, etc. After successful completion of this internship, you will have the opportunity to intern in a client facing role in one of our three service lines: Assurance, Tax or Advisory.

Elevate – PwC’s Leadership Program 
Elevate is a selective program for high achieving college students interested in starting a fast paced career in the professional services industry. Participants will embark on a journey of self-discovery with PwC professionals and students from around the country. During this 3 day conference, participants will gain valuable insight into PwC’s culture, experience the value of the Firm’s extensive network and develop skills necessary to become a leader in today’s professional world. We invite you to elevate your potential with PwC.
Visit www.pwc.com/elevate to learn more.

Please reach out to me with any questions (or just to introduce yourself!) and I look forward to seeing everyone on campus this spring!
