JKUAT Alumni currently working with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Kenya, shared their recruitment journeys that saw them join the audit firm.
Marvin Gitonga who graduated in June 2019 with a degree in Economics, recounted how he applied and went through the rigorous process to become an Associate at the prestigious company. He advised interested students to do their research and be focused in order to succeed. He further urged them to have a teachable spirit and be ready to work hard.
The JKUAT alumni were speaking during a seminar held at JKUAT, February 13, 2020 at the Juja Main Campus, a day before the recruitment process commenced, in order to motivate students to apply for the opportunities. During the seminar, PwC announced plans to commence the graduate recruitment program for the year 2020.
The graduate recruitment program targets young, bright university students from any academic discipline. Its aim is to attract new ideas whenever new people join the firm.
The PwC recruitment has enabled the firm to contribute to philanthropy causes such as the first lady marathon (Beyond Zero) and the Faraja Cancer Trust.
According to Brian Ngunjiri, working at PwC is a great start to a rewarding career. Although accounting knowledge is an added advantage, it is not necessary when applying for the program. This he explained, is due to the fact that the company trains the recruits through continuous in-house training, providing sponsorship for professional courses and allowing time off to study. The training, he added, ensures that PwC employees are qualified to work in any of their offices, globally.
The paid graduate recruitment program is an opportunity to build lasting relationships and make a difference.
