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!

Please explain what you mean by the brand difference is not as big as one would think.
