Congratulations! The email has come through and its official, you’re in. Welcome to Accenture! It’s time to pop the champagne and day dream about swishing around the office, laptop under the arm, feeling very official. If you’re like most people you could have a bit of a wait between receiving your offer and your start date; and if you’re anything like me that is a lot of time to develop first day jitters.
“Will I be overdressed?”
“Will I be underdressed?”
“Will everyone be more experienced than me?”
“Will they change their mind?”
“What if I fail the training?”
I’m here to tell you, you are worried about nothing. The first two weeks are universally acknowledged to be brilliant. To get you started here are my top 10 best things I learned during my first two weeks at Accenture.
It’s all you can eat but don’t eat all you can
“Get in everyone, this one is for the insta #accenture #grads #workfam #wokeuplikethis”
And suddenly, your first two weeks are over and you’re released into the Accenture resource pool. Perhaps you’ll head straight to a project, or perhaps you’ll spend a little time on the bench. One thing is certain, you’re officially ready to begin.
