I have just begun my training with Accenture’s October intake of graduate Analysts. I will be writing a regular blog sharing my experiences as I work through the firm. This blog will aim to better inform you about what a role and life in Accenture can look like, hopefully helping you to decide if this is a firm that you too would like to work for and if so, to support you with your application.
You can also follow me on Twitter (Lauren Jennings @_LaurenEm_1) where I will tweet snippets from my day to day, retweet key Accenture articles, news and messages from other Accenture employees and groups. It would be great to hear from you on Twitter! I’d be more than happy to use this space as a platform through which you can ask me questions about working for Accenture and the application process.
My next blog will give you an insight into the training and development programme that is offered to Accenture’s Analysts. This time I’ll briefly introduce myself and why I wanted to join Accenture: I graduated from the University of Bristol in July 2013 with a degree in French and Spanish. After graduating I worked in the HR department (graduate recruitment) of a global drinks manufacturing company for 6 months. When I saw a role advertised with Accenture’s HR department, I jumped at the opportunity to join the firm. From my role in the Talent Acquisition Team I was able to increase my knowledge and understanding of Accenture; its work, clients and methodologies, and gain a holistic view of the company across each industry group.
I was fascinated by the work that Accenture carries out and really enjoyed meeting with and getting to know the people behind the world-class strategies, technologies and services. Working as a graduate for Accenture promised great career progression and challenge, the opportunity to work with a range of teams with different clients and incomparable learning and development. I was keen to get involved!
