I received an email this morning, saying that I have an upcoming career focus day, but I didn’t receive any confirmation email about my time and venue for it. Maybe it will be same as yours.

Yes, exactly. I received an email from system integration before and invited me to book a time for career focus day. But when I clicked the link, it shown me no time slot available at that time.

Good luck to everyone with upcoming Career Focus Days. I had mine last week and there's not really much you can do to prepare. Just be confident, friendly and try to work as a team. On my day, everyone was applying for different roles at different locations, so don't worry too much about competing with people there.

There's only one written task that is assessed, and it's not a numerical test or anything so you don't have to bother about going practising numerical tests beforehand. The rest of the day is collaborative work. Don't speak over someone else and try to give detailed answers. You get given a lot of information to read through, so I'd advise you to skim through them and make notes on the bits you think are key.

Don't forget to take a watch!

Thanks a lot for the advice! Me and I'm sure many others will appreciate this. Which sector did you apply for and did they say when you'll hear back? Also, did they mention any form of interview you may need to attend or is this the last stage? The website states that usually the career focus day is usually the last stage.
Thanks

Hi guys, I have my career focus day coming up very soon and it’d be helpful if someone could give me an insight of what you do during the day. Thanks in advance
Hey have you heard back from your Career Focus Day? It seems they are lagging quite behind now.

There us verry little you can do to prepare for the career focus day to be honest. I would recommend you look up PWC's global acumen and attriubutes as this is basically what they use as a mark scheme. The one on one at the end of the day is a reflective conversation about how you felt the day went, not really an interview. You get given a lot of information for all of the exercises so be prepared to read a lot and in some of the group exercises perhaps suggest splitting the reading.

Applied for tech risk. Heard back within 3 working days and got an offer. I think divisions like strategy and assurance have a further stage after the AC.
Congratulations! Well done. I applied for tax and just did my AC. I asked if this was the last stage and they said yes, they also said I'd hear back in 5-10 working days but due to Christmas it would be sooner hopefully
