PwC partner interview and assessment

#1

i have a partner interview and assessment tomorrow at pwc and i applied for an accounting/tax technician position can somebody tell me if it would be alright to mention the current mortgage crisis in the u.s as one of the global current issues

#2

I have my AC coming up soon and think i’ll go for something a bit more original as i’m guessing they have heard so much about the credit crunch and mortgage problems recently. I’m not saying you can’t speak about it, and I may be wrong and your example may be fine, but maybe have a back up case (something non-related) should they ask you for another example.

Good luck
