Tips for making your application

Your PwC Graduate programme application is straightforward. To help you before you begin, we’ve outlined the steps in the process below.

1. Before you begin

Before you fill in your application, gather together all the things you'll need. These include:

  • Your CV
  • Full details of your college courses and results
  • Your second level exam results
  • Details of any work experience you have done or jobs you've had

3. Upload your CV

To simplify and speed up the process, you should upload your CV at this stage. Workday will take information from it and populate some parts of the application form automatically - making the process shorter! You will still be able to edit all the information as you proceed. 

If you prefer to skip this step, that's okay - press next and fill in your details in the application form. You will be required to submit your CV at a later time in the application form.

5. Tell us about your work experience

Let us know what work experience you have. Include any experience that you have, no matter what it is: all experience is valuable. 

  • Upload your CV/Resume - if you haven’t uploaded it yet, you must do so at this stage.
  • Add details of your current and previous education. 
  • Add details of your skills - think about all the things you are competent in. Enter them in the form, and you’ll have the chance to pick the skills that are most appropriate to your own from the auto-populating lists that will appear.
  • What languages do you speak, and what is your level of competency - are you a beginner or are you fluent?
  • Include the URLs of any websites we should refer to that show your work or illustrate your skills.
  • Include any social network links, such as Linkedin, where we can learn a little more about you.

6. Question time!

Here, we ask some more specific questions about you and your education. These questions include:

  • Which of our locations in Ireland would you prefer to work with us? 
  • Did you do the Leaving Cert or an equivalent, and what were your points or grades?
  • We'd like to know if you studied English, maths and accounting at second level, and the results you achieved if you did.
  • What college do you attend and what was your most recent overall grade?

This is also your chance to show us your personality and what you are passionate about. 

We're also really keen to find out why you decided to apply to the PwC Graduate programme. We are looking to see what you know about PwC and your chosen area of the business.

If there were any special circumstances that affected any of your grades during your education, or any special requirements you might have during the recruitment process, be sure to include that information here.
