"I decided to join PwC through the Women in Business first year programme as I wanted to learn about the different careers available within the company. I really enjoyed the programme as I learned a lot about the diverse range of career paths and progression routes available within PwC and got the chance to speak to many different professionals within the company. Everyone made me feel welcome and went out of their way to make sure I got the most out of my week there."
