Do you know which sector you want to work in? What office are you applying to?

C.

yeah i had read those they are very helpful. its for the london offices. in my previous interview they asked me where i thought i may want to work CIPS, TICE or financial services. dont think i want to do financial services, what arethe sort of clients with the other 2 and whats some sort of solid reason to be giving as your motivation for choosing one area over anotheR?

Here is a link to a little information on CIPS, i picked CIPS because i have a particular interest in the energy industry.

CIPS: Home

#5

Erm, I’m pretty sure energy is TICE…

#6

is that definitely right chris?

at interview we talked about energy/utilities/mining and i wasn’t asked/didn’t specify CIPS/TICE. I was inferring from the website above that this fitted into CIPS, was my inferrence wrong?

#7

Yeah I’m pretty certain- TICE has energy rolled into it. You should give them a ring and check it out if you are unsure. CIPS is consumer products and retail stuff.

#8

TICE does have energy included in it, to be honest I can’t remember what else but one of the ‘ambassadors’ from PWC I spoke with at lunch yesterday mentioned a lot of technical jargon like TICE and was it mentioned that energy is included.
