Just managed to book a VAC with PwC in 2 weeks. Really nervous.

Can anyone who has completed the career focus day in audit, give me a taste of the day and provide some general tips to prepare for it

Hey, congratulations for making it onto the assessment day.

I just booked my slot for the audit career focus day too! I'm afraid I'm in the same boat as you, I don't quite know what to expect, especially as the assessment day is virtual rather than in person. If it follows the same format as other assessment days it will be as follows:

Written report --> Assessments (Numerical/verbal/logical) --> Group exercise --> Reflective interview.

However, I have noticed from the employability hub that the career focus day will give us a calendar and we will have to follow it, go to meetings etc.

I assume the day will be broadly similar to the in-person assessment centre, however, I could be wrong and it could have changed due to the virtual nature of the day. All the information I have is from the "employability hub" in the "Before your assessment day" panel.

Best of luck!

Hey,
I have the assessment in about 3 weeks. I was wondering if you guys had done it, and if you don't mind sharing the layout of the day, and if anything had changed from the normal assessment center tasks. Thanks!

Hi! I have my career focus day in a week and I have no clue what to expect! Is there anyone that has done a virtual career focus day that could give any insight as to what to expect and how to prepare? Thanks in advance
