Natasha Granholm was a student at Robert Morris College when she got an unlikely foot in the door at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The accounting giant, which didn’t typically recruit at Robert Morris, had asked the school for help finding candidates to fill copy room positions, and Granholm, a top accounting student, was encouraged to apply.
She told the interviewer she’d prefer a job that used her accounting skills. Her moxie paid off.
When she returned home to Aurora that evening, she found a package, delivered by a courier, with an offer for a full-time client internship at PwC.
