"My work is challenging, but I try my best to locate different resources and make connections on the fly. Witnessing what I've accomplished gives me a great sense of achievement."

Why Accenture

During a summer internship in a Singapore startup, I have worked on a government-led FinTech project that collaborated with Accenture. Knowing that Accenture has consulted many large-scale projects, I decided to apply for a graduate job at the campus recruitment.

Working at Accenture gives me the opportunity to work with clients across industries. I get to know new domain knowledge and software products, and work with new teammates from time to time. Life here is never boring.

I believe Accenture is the best place to start a career as the rapid project cycle across industries offers vast exposure to the business world. And the career ladder allows us to explore new roles and grow different skillsets.

How I put change in motion

I have joined Accenture for fruitful two years now. As a fresh graduate who newly joined the team, I was led by my team lead and a senior developer, and more focused on building my technical skills. When I have gained more experiences technically and was more familiar with the business, I gradually shifted my role to a team lead by managing the deliver.

Being a team lead means your consideration expands from your own responsibility to the delivery of the entire project. This year in this role, I get to know the strength of each of my teammates and gives everyone an opportunity to grow. I learnt that in a healthy team, people never accomplished all the work by him/herself but ask for help at the right time.

During my project that works on a payment platform, I worked with a team of 10 developers to deliver software that processes millions of dollars of transactions. I need to review different members’ work and drive the system towards a clean and neat design. One of my challenges is to cater business requirements from different users. At times I don't understand the business purpose of the change, I'd consult other Accenture colleagues that have worked with the same client so that I can see the whole picture more clearly. My work is challenging, but I try my best to locate different resources and make connections on the fly. Witnessing what I've accomplished gives me a great sense of achievement.

A day in my life

My work location usually depends on the client. After enjoying a cup of coffee, I will start by organizing my to-dos for the day. In the morning, we have a standup meeting with clients so that everyone is on the same page about the project's progress and any possible obstacles. Since then, I'll work on my stories, which are the tasks assigned to me at the start of the sprint. If there are incidents reported, I will investigate by diving into logs, codes, and business logic to know when and why they happened. I often meet with clients to discuss new features and their technical feasibility so that we can give the best recommendation. I usually spend the last hour of the day tying up any loose ends and getting ready for tomorrow.
