What I Do

In the past years, I’ve been focusing on implementing modern electronic medical record (EMR) solutions. My work has taken me around the world as the most modern EMRs are currently used outside of Finland. I’ve been helping our clients in the US as well as in the Middle East to navigate thru the EMR transformation journey that implementing an EMR will have on the client organization. Working abroad with multinational teams has been extremely interesting and educational – working with people, both clients and Accenture own folks, from different cultures teaches a lot of yourself and others. Naturally, the amount of professional experience I’ve been able to gain during my assignments abroad is unmeasurable.

Day in my Life

Since I’m not a morning person, I tend to start my day working from “home”. Usually, I begin by reading emails or getting ready for client or team meetings depending on the day’s schedule. During the day I check how my team is doing and if they need any help completing their work. Compared to Finnish work culture, supporting non-Finnish clients requires a lot of physical presence at the client site – often this means I have several meetings scheduled throughout the day to discuss topics that the client needs assistance. Once the day is coming to an end, I usually check what things need to be done during the few next days and complete the necessary preparations. Something unexpected comes up almost every day – no matter how well you have prepared yourself. That’s what makes my work so interesting.

Outside the Office

I have a bad habit of getting involved into too many different activities. I love to try new sports and my most recent discovery is cross training. I’m also a fanatic scuba diver and I love to dive almost anywhere – in the cold Baltic Sea or in clear tropical waters. Exploring an old wreck or observing sharks, the last thing on your mind is work. I also enjoy travelling and try to visit new places or my family and friends around the world whenever I can.

My Advice
If you’re a person who loves challenges and a varied workday, Accenture is the place to be. You will have a chance to learn tons of new things and you’ll work with fantastic and hardworking people from around the world. We have a great network within our company and you can make lifelong friend while working here.
