It was just me and the internet. Where could I start my career?
I knew I needed a network I could rely on but being a person who didn’t attend High School in Australia, most organisations unfortunately didn’t offer me any opportunity.
I searched for places all over the internet, I submitted over 15 apprenticeship applications and still nothing came my way. After a while, I decided to finally stop submitting applications and look into going to University or starting a TAFE course.
On that very day that I decided to stop, an application worth applying for fell right into my email inbox. I received three emails from indeed on the same day, all with the PwC Higher Apprenticeship Program application link. That is when I knew the right opportunity had finally come my way.
After applying, I went through a series of psychometric tests and interviews. Fortunately this time, I managed to get accepted despite how different I appeared to be in terms of background.
PwC has become a home, a great supportive network for me. The people here saw beyond my background and recognised my passion as a talent. Now I get to pursue my passion in IT while I get trained and paid too!
I dress the way I feel comfortable and I have made friends for life. I intend to stay at PwC for many years to come and I would highly recommend anyone to come onboard.
