A high GPA and the junior accountants club will get you only so far with PricewaterhouseCoopers recruiters.
The firm is looking for candidates who can show they have done something different that sets them apart from their peers, PwC Chairman Dennis Nally recently told WSJ.com.
Why? It's a good sign that they'll be successful at the Big Four accounting firm.
PwC, which hires about 4,500 new employees a year, is constantly on the hunt for new talent, Nally said.
While a strong academic record is important for candidates, leadership positions or other campus activities that set them apart from other students will help give them an edge.
"We're looking for individuals who will always have with the mindset to continue to develop themselves to be the best that they can be," he said.
"In our business, the need to continue to reinvent yourself, to continue to develop, to continue to grow with new opportunities is really essential for long-term success."
