Hi everyone, my name is Eileen and I am a senior associate in the Audit and Assurance Group in the Waterloo, Ontario office (part of the South Western Ontario region, or SWO). I am originally from Guelph, ON, which is just a short 30 minutes away from Waterloo.
In January 2013, I returned to PwC full-time and wrote the first of the three Institute of Chartered Accounting Ontario exams; the Core Knowledge Examination. Just this past Friday, I found out I passed the second exam; the School of Accountancy Examination. This September, I hope to successfully write the UFE!
Working with people and clients in Canada and the US
While working with PwC, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of different clients spanning from northern Ontario to Michigan, US. Not only have I developed great relationships within the Waterloo office, I have also met and formed relationships with people from our other regional offices; London and Windsor. Together, our three offices make up the PwC SWO region. I really enjoy working so closely with these two other offices as it creates tons of opportunities to travel across Ontario and to meet new people every single day.
In my spare time, I love to play any kind of sport, and visit friends from university (and their cottages!). I also have a bit of a weakness for reality television shows!
Please feel free to continue to follow my blog over the next few months to hear more about my PwC experiences, and to hear some helpful tips on my recruitment process with PwC!
