Parents of Successful PWC Applicant 2013
The first step on your journey through the PWC application process is the registration form and CV submission. You can access the form here. The registration form consists of the following sections:
After choosing a convenient date from the options offered to you by the company, you will generally have from one to two weeks to prepare. As we all know, job tests can be daunting and how can you be fully confident of putting in a perfect performance if you lack Big Four experience? If you can demonstrate the required ambition and endeavor, we will give you the support you need to land your dream job.
PWC have designed the registration form to assess you against their key competencies criteria. Although PWC do list key competencies criteria on their website, they don’t provide many details on the questions you can expect to face. However, you can draw on the experience of our experts, who have previously worked for Big Four firms, to give you a major advantage in this area.

From 2011 onwards, Big Four firms have been operating the registration form process under a different format, with considerably less attention on career motivation. Overseas applicants are only eligible to apply for a few departments and there are tight application deadlines as the firm will need to arrange your work visa. For certain positions, you may be asked to submit a CV instead, which is commonly seen as more challenging as there are no guidelines to follow or concrete questions to answer. The relevant software has been developed for the company by SHL, a renowned global HR consultancy that publishes various psychometric tests for PWC worldwide.
Some questions you can expect to find on the form are listed below:
The registration form may seem fairly clear and simple, but it may surprise you that almost half of all applicants will not even make it past the first stage! Make sure you are fully equipped to pass at your first attempt!
When you submit your form, the computer system automatically grades it and gives it a rank of pass or fail. These results are then double-checked by the recruitment team.
PWC grade your ability on each stage between 1 point and 5. It is assumed by PWC that if an applicant can demonstrate ‘core capabilities’ and attain the full 5 marks during the registration form process then they automatically become a perfect match for the firm.
This means you need to score the maximum 5 points on every single stage to set yourself apart from rival jobseekers and cannot afford to take a job test without having been properly prepared by Green Turn.
