Transferable Skills

When it comes to a career in tech, it’s important to have developed a number of interpersonal skills at university.

Meeting deadlines is a key part of almost every role in the digital industry, with many pieces of work on hold until other jobs are completed. Problem solving and critical thinking is also essential; being able to identify and analyse criteria appropriate to specific digital problems and plan strategies for their solution.

Studying at university gives students the opportunity to develop great interpersonal skills that they can take into any workplace in any industry.

Women in Tech

PwC believes in strength through diversity and this is what makes us strong as a business and as an organisation with an increasingly agile workforce.

PwC takes part in a number of events that discusses how companies can work together quicker to address the gender gap in technology careers. This is alongside organisations like ‘Everywoman’ and ‘CodeFirst: Girls’. PwC are also proud member of ‘WISE’, an organisation that inspires girls to choose Maths, Physics and Computing.

“Tech is an extremely dynamic environment and everyday at PwC is different because you get to work on so many different projects with a lot of people with different expertise. It’s a very exciting place to be.” PwC
