Where are you interning?
I’m interning with PwC in Dallas.

How did you go about getting your internship? What steps did you take?
I went to all of the PwC info sessions and events they put on. At the events, I
sought out employers in the divisions that seemed interesting and conversed with
them about the position as well as our personal lives. I established a
connection and rapport.

What classes do you think were the most valuable in getting your internship?

MIS333K since my interviewer took the class and talked about his experience
doing the K project.

What advice would you give to others as they search for an internship?
Definitely go out to events and get your face out there. Network a lot and it
will get easier (if you’re not naturally inclined already). Also, practice
interviewing! Your answers will become more apt and succinct the more you

Can you describe how your interview went?
The interview was behavioral and rather laid back. I had already talked with my
interviewer many times prior so it wasn’t nerve-racking. He asked me about my
resume and relevant classes, no curveballs.

What were the hardest questions they asked in your interview?
To be honest, I don’t remember the questions my interviewer asked me. But
nothing stuck out as difficult to answer.
