1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

8/10

My role was to shadow a PwC worker at the time. My daily tasks involved interacting with other PwC workers and attending meetings which allowed me to get a great insight of the work each PwC worker goes through. I was provided a laptop which allowed me to access PwC emails and email other workers for my buddy which I shadowed. This was intriguing as I had to email others in a business form which therefore allows me to get ready for a future job in this type of industry. Overall, it was an amazing opportunity as I think it has prepared me for a future career in a business environment.
