PriceWaterhouseCooper Visit Business Students with Careers Advice

Auditor, Taher Kamari and Management Consultant Apprentice Isabella Soones from PriceWaterhouseCooper visited West London College last week, 11 November 2022, to share tips and advice on how to start their careers with PwC. Around 50 Business Level 3 first and second-year students came along to the talk and some stayed at the end to discuss more in-depth questions.

Isabella said: “A lot of people think you can only get apprenticeships in areas like plumbing so it’s important for us to go to meet students and challenge the stereotype. The apprenticeships we offer vary from tax, to audit, legal and technological.”

Isabella described the excitement she feels at working on multi-million-pound deals with PwC, as well as making great friends, which was really impressive to Aisha Razaq who said she had no idea someone could work on such high-profile deals, without having a university degree.

Taher advised the students to set up a LinkedIn account and to be active on the platform. He said: “It’s a great way to network and find out about job opportunities.”

Business Level 3 second year student, Imam El-Massmoudi Garcia said: “I learned that there are different ways to get to the degree you want in accounting, tax, legal and so on and how to start the journey.”

Fellow student, Moshda Mohammad said: “PwC has a very flexible management style so they try to offer employees working conditions that help with their work-life balance.”

Danail Hristov said: “I learned today that PwC lets you try working for 6 months at various parts of the business to see which one is the best fit for you, which I thought was a great idea.”
