Study Tip of the Week
:  Think of homework as practice, not work. You know that you don’t get better at things like sports or music or cheerleading unless you practice. School's the same.

Are you looking for a unique and rewarding career experience?  Are you interested in getting your foot in the door with one of the most prestigious professional services organizations in the world?  Are you a diverse freshman or sophomore? If so, then the PricewaterhouseCoopers eXplore Program is an opportunity you can't miss!  If selected, you will participate in educational and social networking opportunities followed by a group dinner activity.  The PricewaterhouseCoopers eXplore Program is scheduled for Saturday, January 31, 2009 at Temple University beginning at 9:00 AM.  All expenses will be covered by PwC.  You will need to be available from 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM.   

Want Additional Info?

Who is PwC? 
PricewaterhouseCoopers firms have more than 140,000 partners and staff in 149 countries which makes them the largest global network of professional services firms - offering a wide range of assurance, tax, and advisory services to many of the world's largest and most prestigious companies.  PricewaterhouseCoopers believes that diversifying their staff, their partnerships, and their leadership is critical to the continued success of their global organization.  In an effort to educate a more diverse candidate pool on the opportunities at PricewaterhouseCoopers and the professional services industry as a whole, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Temple University are working together to host this program in hopes of reaching members of under represented student populations across all academic disciplines (3.2 GPA or higher).
