By joining one of PNC’s Development Programs, you can explore your potential through hands-on experience in a professional environment. This is an excellent opportunity to begin exploring your career goals, in addition to growing your skills in key areas. The goal of PNC’s Development Programs is to move analysts and associates from development roles into production roles in one of PNC’s lines of business.
During this 12-month program, analysts in PNC’s Corporate Finance & Accounting Development Program have the opportunity to rotate through four areas of the PNC Finance department which include:
* Line of Business Support: Responsible for providing revenue generating lines of business with strategic counsel, meaningful reporting and analysis, and critical insights into business and financial metrics to drive results
* Shared Services: Responsible for managing the budgeting, forecasting, financial reporting and analysis for areas that reach every department of the bank
* Corporate Controller’s Office: Responsible for providing meaningful, accurate, reliable, and timely financial regulatory and risk information
* Other areas may include segments of Corporate Finance that do not fall into the first three areas based upon the nature of their work: Investor Relations, Enterprise Performance Analysis, Corporate Tax and Mergers and Acquisitions
Analysts work with other finance professionals to perform accounting, reporting, variance and profitability analysis, as well as reconciliation, budgeting and forecasting. Rotations may also provide exposure to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Securities & Exchange Commission and regulatory reporting and disclosure requirements, internal control assessments, risk management, quantitative methods such as Net Present Value (NPV), performance metrics such as Earning to Price ration (E/P) and Pre-Provision New Revenue (PPNR), and economic and regulatory capital.
Professional experience that satisfies the requirements of the Pennsylvania State Board of Accountancy can be provided to those who are interested in their CPA certification. The CPA certification is eligible for reimbursement through PNC while in the Corporate Finance & Accounting Development Program.
The Corporate Finance & Accounting Development Program is located in Pittsburgh. Learn more about PNC’s Development Programs by visiting www.pnc.jobs/students.
