Before joining Accenture, Jill earned her Bachelor of Music in NUI Maynooth and worked as a Music teacher, which she soon discovered didn’t suit her lifestyle.
Jill always had an interest in sound design, so she enrolled in a Master’s degree in Interactive Digital Media in Trinity College Dublin. During the course, she surprised herself by how much she enjoyed web design and programming.
After completing her Master’s, Jill joined the Accenture grad programme in Business & Technology Integration in 2017. She travelled to Madrid for two weeks of training, before starting her first project with one of our Silicon Valley clients.
Her work involves researching and investigating the client’s processes and systems, e.g. reporting. After researching how reporting currently works, Jill works with the client and Accenture colleagues to identify the reporting requirements, before defining a better, technology-optimised solution.
In terms of skills development, Jill has advanced her skills in high-demand areas like mySQL, HTML, CSS - and her new passion, Artificial Intelligence (AI). She has travelled twice to London for training in Conversational AI (i.e. chatbot building) and Test Automation.
