"I’m excited and amazed because despite not having a lot of experience with SAP, I know my team is there for me and that I’m going to learn a lot from them. That’s what it’s like in Accenture."

How I put change in motion

Even though I always wanted to pursue a career in the consulting industry, working in a tech company never crossed my mind until I found an opening at Accenture. I did a bit of research and was intrigued by how the company uses technology to help improve lives. I thought to myself, “Imagine being a part of that!”

So, I joined Accenture and am now part of a team supporting enterprise resource planning software SAP. We help our clients use SAP to support their daily operations, including sending payments or recording transactions. But just like any other software, a human touch is still required to truly unleash its full power. That’s where I come in. I help clients design customized programs tailored to their business needs and troubleshoot any issues they encounter with SAP

A day in my life

Before the pandemic, I worked at the center where I virtually supported my overseas clients. It was easy to reach out to people from different projects and share our expertise and best practices with each other.

When the pandemic hit, we started doing everything through calls. We also talked about things outside of work. It was very comforting to be in a team that knows when to be serious and when to laugh a little during breaks.

I’ve worked on two projects so far: an internal one for business operations and my current one as part of the SAP Support Team for an e-commerce giant in ASEAN. I’m excited and amazed because despite not having a lot of experience with SAP, I know my team is there for me and that I’m going to learn a lot from them. That’s what it’s like in Accenture.

On the weekends, I take my cats for walks and read a lot. I’m currently reading “A Life Story” by Hanya Yanagihara—I definitely recommend adding this to your reading list!

"Working at Accenture I got to learn a lot of new things from my team and working on variety of projects."

My advice

Don’t be scared to try something new! I wasn’t tech-savvy to begin with, so working in a tech company was challenging. I felt like there were too many technical things I didn’t know about. Lucky for me, Accenture regularly encourages us to take training and supplies us with great learning opportunities. (PS: Knowing Excel formulas is an advantage!)
