Application procedure graduates

How do you get your first job at PwC?

Graduates must complete our application procedure, consisting of an online assessment and two interviews: one introductory meeting (often face-to-face but sometimes by phone) and one in-depth interview. If you successfully complete all of the application phases, you will be offered a contract to start your career at PwC!

Apply online

The first step in the procedure is an online application. During this stage, you must show that you have done your homework on PwC and that the vacancy is the appropriate next step in your professional development. A recruiter will assess your CV and cover letter and will contact you to complete an online assessment. He or she will also explain the different stages of the application procedure. If you have any questions at this point, feel free to ask the recruiter.

Complete an online assessment

The online assessment asks questions that are designed to evaluate your personality and test your attributes. Your answers to the personality questionnaire give an impression of how you tend to respond in all kinds of different situations. We focus on a number of aspects in order to assess how successful your internship would be, such as how well you work together with others, how curious you are to learn new things and how well you forge relationships with your clients and colleagues. As your job will require excellent verbal, mathematical and inductive skills, these aspects will also be assessed.

The recruiter will then phone you to discuss the results and let you know if you have progressed to the interview stage.

Interviews with professional colleagues

The assessment will be followed by two interviews: one introductory interview and one in-depth interview. During these interviews, you will meet a number of professionals who work for PwC. This will give you an idea of what type of people you will work with. They will discuss your skills and motivation for seeking the job. However, the interview is not a one-way dialogue: you can also ask any questions you may have, so make sure you carefully prepare them. Ultimately, your interviewers will assess whether and to what extent you possess the skills that we look for in new talent.

Offer of a contract

After the second interview, you will be told whether or not you will be offered a contract. One condition for employment contracts at PwC is that you undergo pre-employment screening via DSI (our independent screening partner) with regard to the following aspects: identity, qualifications, work experience, possession of a Certificate of Good Conduct, and personal solvency.
