2016 ANUCSxPwC Case Competition Finalist's Reflection
We asked a 2016 ANUCSxPwC Case Competition Finalist about her experience participating in the Case Competition!
What was your experience like participating in the case competition?
I did the competition with a few friends when I was in second year and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. It was definitely challenging since we had no idea how business or consulting worked outside of the academic sphere, but we learnt so much along the way. We had the opportunity to meet some amazing consultants and to this day I still remember to apply the tips they had for us to my work.
What benefits did you gain from participating in the case competition?
I learnt various presenting tips, writing tips and other important business skills. However, I benefited most from the exposure to the business environment. The competition allowed me to meet many different consultants across firms that shared their career experiences with us, which really helped me figure out the specific career path I wanted to take after university.
Do you have any advice for those participating in the case competition?
Even if you don’t feel like you’re ready for the competition, give it a go! It can be really daunting going up against some really experienced participants but don’t underestimate yourself, you can do it!
