Following up on last week's blog about the different types of secondments available at PwC, this week I’ll talk about my short-term secondment to Charlotte, North Carolina from November 2011 to March 2012.
As noted in my last post, the Tax CA program provides multiple opportunities to go on short term (3 – 6 month) secondments to offices in Canada, the US, and India. These give our junior staff the chance to get some experience working in another office, build their global internal network, and get an idea of what the primary industries of our clients in different parts of the world. For example, in Vancouver we work with a lot of mining clients, while in Toronto or New York many of our clients are financial institutions. In our California offices, we have a lot of high tech and entertainment clients, while in Alberta or Texas, there is a good chance most of your clients will be involved with oil and gas.
As promised…this post will be dedicated to international secondments. Secondments refer to a period of time (usually 3 – 24 months long) that are spent working outside of your own office. In the Tax CA program, we offer short term (3 – 6 month) secondments to other PwC offices in Canada, the US, and India. Once you have obtained your CA though, the options are virtually limitless. Markus, a colleague who started the same day as I did in the Tax CA program, is now one year into his two year secondment in London. I decided to “interview him” in order to get some insight into what you could expect from an international secondment.
Je vous écris cette semaine dans le but de partager une des facettes intéressantes de la vérification chez PwC et particulièrement pour le bureau de Québec. Chez PwC, il est possible d'effectuer des mandats de vérification à l'échelle internationale. Plusieurs mandats de différentes envergures peuvent nous amener à voyager.
