PwC/Strategy&

Anonymous A

Hello,

I'm reviewing my resume and would like the community's thoughts on representing my experience. I'm presently a consultant at PwC Strategy Kenya, but I've worked on two Strategy& Australia projects. In both cases, the Strategy& client was considering a Kenya expansion as part of their broader 5-year strategy, and the PwC Kenya team was employed to provided advise on the expansion.

I'm revamping my resume and I listed the Strategy& collaboration in a bullet point under my PwC Kenya experience (without divulging clients' name of course). Would you advise this? Can I ethically list that I've worked on Strategy& projects in my resume (therefore I have some sort of tier 1.5 consuting exposure), even though I have never been a direct Strategy& employee?

Thanks.

Yes of course, no problem with that. As long as you keep the client sufficiently disguised, I do not see any problem with this. It is part of your working experience.

Cheers, Sidi

Hi,

I can't find any reason why you should not do that. However, the brand difference is not as big as you think about it.

Best!
