PWC Consulting grad scheme 'review'

#1

Hi,

Not sure if there are any other people who were told after recent Consulting assessment days that they’d need to be deferred until next year? That’s what I was told (fair enough if they’re full for 2012); but just wondering if anybody had heard anything else? Their student recruitment team phoned a few weeks ago to ask if I wanted to keep my application (now for 2013) live, pending a review.

I thought that was a bit weird… has anybody else experienced similar?

Cheers

Yep, exactly the same thing happened to me. I got an email from PwC while I was about halfway through the application process. I had originally applied for the Autumn 2012 entrance (consultancy grad program), but was told that it had been filled and was asked if I would be willing to defer my entrance to march 2013. I said yes and continued with my application, eventually receiving an offer which I accepted.

My impression from the whole application process was that they are under a huge amount of pressure from sheer volume of applicants - I think they’ve had another record year for applicant numbers, so the pressure for places is intense. Being deferred wasn’t what I had anticipated at all, but I was just happy to be made an offer regardless!

I’d keep on with your application - good luck!

Fair play to you, and congrats. I haven’t even been called back in for my final interview yet though… and I went to the AC last year!!!
