Working at PwC by Rowan Daiksel


This past summer, I had the enormous privilege of being able to take part in the TAMID Fellowship, an experience that led to the best summer I’ve ever had. I interned at PwC analyzing financial statements of large multi-national corporations in order to contribute to the construction of complex and intriguing international tax returns. Through this experience, I improved my ability to tell a story from the financial statements of a company and to translate that into complex excel spreadsheets. On a more personal level, it was incredible to be surrounded by such kind, interesting, passionate, and sometimes aggressively hard-working people. This was a work experience I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Through the Fellowship’s exclusive TAMID events, I was able to learn and grow both personally and professionally. I was exposed to some incredible Israeli startups, venture capital firms, and larger corporations while building a network of hundreds of students and professionals from all over the United States. This general business environment, both on a startup level and a large corporate level, exposed me to a level of passion, persistence, and perseverance I think is impossible to find anywhere else in the world.

Lastly, and arguably most importantly, I met the most incredible people and made life-long friends and incredible memories. We got to experience almost every corner of Israel, ranging from mountainous forests and barren deserts to beautiful beaches and sprawling cities. Tel-Aviv is one of the only places in the world where after a long day of work you can go to the beach have a beer with some friends while watching the sunset. It is a place where you can experience the top-tier nightlife of Tel-Aviv, some of the best restaurants in the world, a melting pot of different cultures, and unparalleled natural beauty. Such an experience is almost impossible to replicate anywhere else in the world on literally every single level. This is an opportunity unlike anything else, and I could not recommend it more enthusiastically.
