Felix Hull, Associate, PwC
How did studying at Pearson College London help you get into the world of business?
One huge factor was the teaching. Being taught by lecturers who have had a wealth of experience in industry not only translated into providing a more practical understanding of the courses but it gave invaluable insights into the world of business and what to expect when working in industry. Engaging in conversations with the lectures about the world of business developed my business acumen before I had even started by first internship and helped me identify what career I wanted to pursue.
Networking is another key aspect I first learnt the importance of at Pearson College London. Through their many networking events I developed by own networking skills which is now something I do so often in my current job role.
Where have you gone on to work and what is your role?
I am an Associate at PwC on their Assurance Graduate scheme.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am still very much in the introductory phase, involving technical training for systems that I'll be using in the future. I have also started my teaching agreement with the ICAEW but have already got some exciting clients lined up in the coming weeks.
What do you mostly enjoy about working for PwC?
I really enjoy the job variety, constantly being on the move and working in different environments is something I didn't expect and makes the job exciting. Although the workload is very high, it's exciting to know that you're working towards being a qualified accountant at one the world's leading professional services firms.
What course did you study?
