When Trevor Lund applied for an internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Salt Lake City he hoped to gain valuable experience in public accounting and secure a job. He didn’t think, however, he’d end up flying to New york City to learn directly from the company’s U.S. chairman and senior partner Bob Moritz.
Trevor submitted three essays and his resume, and was one of two interns from the U.S. market selected for this highly competitive program that allowed him to spend a day job- shadowing Mr. Moritz, who is essentially the CEO of the company. This was the first time someone from the Salt Lake office had been chosen to participate in this event. During his visit he was able to attend meetings with the PwC board of directors, regulators from Europe, and PwC clients. He also attended a live interview Mr. Moritz did with Fox News.
“He was very kind, transparent, and candid,” Trevor said. “He was an open book and gave us some great advice.”
He said that Mr. Moritz was familiar with the Huntsman School of Accountancy and was very interested in learning about Trevor’s experience as a Huntsman Scholar in Europe and the time he spent in India serving an LDS mission.
