Hi everyone! This is Julia – and my roommate Meryl. We’re senior associates from the PwC Assurance group in Toronto. We’re writing to you from our new apartment in New York as we’ve just moved here on a six-month work assignment! We’ve been asked to share some of our experiences with you over the next few months, so here’s our first blog.
To be honest, when we first arrived in the city we were really nervous because everything seemed so much bigger and more fast-paced than our office in Toronto. The firm gave us a few days to settle in and we took the opportunity to get to know our neighborhood, which is just steps away from Times Square and Grand Central Station.
On our first day, we had the opportunity to meet other PwC secondees who had come to New York just like us from around the world. Over the past few weeks, we’ve gotten to know a few secondees from Ireland, South Africa – and even all the way from Estonia. They’ve already become a part of our extended PwC network and friends who will be experiencing the city with us.
Check out a few of the places we’ve been so far, and stay tuned for our upcoming adventures in the Big Apple!
