If I’m looking to apply to a Strategy& role, does it make a difference if the person referring me is in a PwC group as opposed to a Strategy& group?

Yes. As a general rule, referrals from people close to a team will carry more weight vs referrals from people further from a team


Yes unless it’s a partner

Yes and no.

No, in that PwCs referral portal is a black box resumes disappear into.

Yes, in that if someone on the team directly emails your resume to a recruiter it will count for a lot.

Understood. Appreciate the input everyone

Anybody have any insights on what they’re hearing with regard to post vaccinated travel? Specially between the US and Canada.
