“The Accenture Internship Programme is the perfect introduction to the professional workplace. Throughout my 7 months I worked as a Data Analytics intern within Accenture's Applied Intelligence practice. I was given similar responsibilities to that of an analyst and the team I worked with were incredibly supportive and welcoming from day one.

Aside from project work, learning and development opportunities were plentiful between training courses, peer-to-peer learning afternoons and after work events such as Toastmasters. Through attending all of these different events I met people from every corner of the company and each was as friendly as the next. I would highly recommend an internship with Accenture - I couldn't have asked for more."

"During my 7-month internship, I was exposed to various client projects, training, corporate events, astounding people and most importantly an amazing opportunity to develop myself not just professionally but personally.

I was based in two projects during my internship, firstly in the financial services sector and then lastly, in Accenture The Dock, Accenture’s R&D centre. Both projects were extremely relevant to my Business Information System (BSc) degree at the National University Ireland Galway (NUIG). While working on these projects, I was challenged and encouraged to learn more. My Accenture colleagues and team empowered me to develop my technical and soft skills and through this, I gained a tremendous understanding of current Technological and Business practices.

Due to my internship experience, I leave Accenture knowing that I am more knowledgeable, confident, proud and grateful; when I come back next year, I will be returning to a place not only do I enjoy but back to an amazing organisation."
