How Do I Get Into Pwc? by stint(m): 4:50pm On Jan 23, 2015
I am fresh graduate with practically no work experience. As God will have it, I have gotten an invite to write PWC online shl test. My main problem is not the test. Am fairly confident ill pass it. Its the interviews and everything that comes next that scares me. How will i convince the interviewers to hire me with no experience. I have recently lost an entry level job at access bank cos i wasnt just making sense, even to myself, bad day. Another day, might have Aced it. Yet i know ill be really good at this job. I am on reserve right now, my savings is exhausted, if i dont get this pwc, i might have to look for a school to start teaching indices and logarithm. Even getting tfare to such work will require divine provision assuming i get employed to teach. I am writing this hoping someone can figure out how ive been fucking it up or give some good advise. Thanks in advance.

Its in your head........its called desperation!!!! It saps you gradually and reduces you to nothing....just let confidence back in.

You sound like a pretty learned person, and if you've been able to successfully convey your thoughts here, you shouldn't have a problem with an interview; unless, of course, fear and desperation are introduced.....find a way to work around those two things and you'll be good.

And just don't be soooo sure of passing that pwc test yet!!! Its okay to fear that one (test) smiley grin wink

From personal experience, when going for an interview, you must be relaxed. You must not remember the needs the job will meet when you finally get it because that will put you under pressure.

Try reading up some nice books about successful interviewing. Like an earlier poster said, the first step to successful interviews is confidence and confidence only comes after adequate preparation. you can pm me, I ll send you some nice books that would help you ace interviews.

Thanks, i think you are right. Its somehow desperation that puts me under pressure. Really need the job. I will learn to relax more. The job will take 4 months to get self like someone said. Ill concentrate on the test for now. Thanks.

Thanks for your advise. Another problen is an quite sensitive, always busy in my head. When am kept waiting, it somehow saps my energy, and before I know it, my mind starts running 20 miles per hour. And the more am busy in my brain, the less i am able to properly respond to my environment and interview question!!!

Wow writing this out really helps me see things in better light.

What do you think about the lack of work experience.

Thank you sir, four months of waiting is really something. Let me concentrate on the aptitude test first and go from there. I have another interview with aiico insurance, ive done it before and passed, didnt go because of the fact that its marketing and its either commision or 40k. Now am being sent another invite from another branch of same company. I think i should do it, it will give me something to talk about at pwc interview. Its just the waka waka plus i am not sure the job suits my personality.
