PwC Chairman Bob Moritz Says Heat Stroke Is Good for Your Career

Whelp, better get the trophies, as this is without a doubt the worst anecdote ever:

Heat-tested in Texas. Here’s a great story about the importance of being agile and learning all you can from the opportunities you’re presented with. Early in her career, one of my partners at PwC was assigned to our Houston office. She was asked to look at some R&D credit projects for one of our oil industry clients. She found herself working in a trailer with feeble air conditioning, wearing then-standard formal business attire, in the middle of the Texan summer. She felt — almost literally — like a fish out of water. But the experience turned out to be pivotal for her. She was out in the field — observing refineries, studying plans, learning from the engineers who knew their business best — and she was developing energy industry expertise from the ground up. That project led to another and another, and that former junior staffer now leads our energy practice in the United States.

Let's hope her office has excellent air conditioning or at least a halfway decent floor fan.
