    Hi,

    I have a telephone interview coming up for PwC's management consulting graduate role in the Bristol office. I was just wondering if anyone knew the sorts of questions that came up? I know that they put a lot of emphasis on targeting their 'competencies'.

    Thanks.

    Will probably be focused around the competency framework. Most of the information you need is here:
    http://www.pwc.co.uk/careers/student...n-process.html

    If you look into each of the competencies it will you give you an idea of the sort of questions they will ask. Just prepare 2 stories for each competency.

    For commercial awareness, know about the scheme and the different areas. try and research any recent news (BBC, FT, AccountancyAge) relevant to PwC. Helps to know about the Strategy& (formerly Booz acquisition and why they acquired them).

    Finally of course why PwC.

    Thanks for your help!

    I'll make sure to prep the competencies and have strong commercial awareness before the interview
