During the summer of 2014, I was an Information Technology & Project Assurance (IT&PA) SAP Intern for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) LLP. PwC is an accounting firm that focuses on four main lines of service: assurance, advisory, tax, and internal form services. In addition, PwC focuses on 16 main industries including: health services, communication, real estate, and automotive.
Over the eight-week course of my internship I was involved in internal and external projects. My main focus during these projects was concentrated on working with SAP software. The opportunity to work on a variety of assignments allowed me to develop more comprehensive knowledge and technical skills involving SAP.
The majority of my time at PwC was spent working on a large internal project. My main responsibility was to extract tables from SAP and transferring them into SQL. The difficulties of this were involved with generating queries for solutions to issues involving the SAP process.
In addition to solving complex queries, I was tasked with comparing narratives to their flow charts. This process involved having an in-depth understanding of narratives and respective SAP processes. First I would review a client’s narrative and their SAP process. During these reviews I would verify their narrative and processes were concise and correct. After the completion of that evaluation I would then compare the narrative to the flow chart and validate if the flow chart matches the processes stated in the narrative. All issues were worked out directly with the client to produce the highest quality deliverable.
Overall, I had a fantastic experience interning at PwC. The firm offered me tremendous opportunities; ranging from networking with partners to learning a multitude of software systems. I appreciated their investment – whether that be academically, professionally, or personally. I look forward to starting my career.
