"Technology is Accenture’s forte, and my daily immersion in it has enabled me to expand my capabilities and step out of my comfort zone."

What I do

A day in my life

Every morning starts with me going through my e-mails and noting important action items. Afterward, I get on a daily huddle with my team to make sure we’re in sync on our project and our progress. The rest of the day goes by in exciting, uncharted ways. I’d go to client meetings, requirements-gathering sessions or an Accenture event.

My day also involves a lot of communication with many project stakeholders. With experience, I’ve grown in handling these interactions smoothly, and I’m glad for the opportunity to be continually enhancing my ability to articulate myself in written and oral terms.

Through various projects, I have also been able to develop a grasp over complex digital tools and programming languages. We employ deep technology solutions to solve our clients’ problems, and daily exposure has deepened my knowledge dramatically.

Indeed, I’ve grown throughout my journey in Accenture. In my first year, for instance, I was sent to Jakarta, Indonesia, to work with a telecommunications provider in their transformation project. Once there, I managed to align quickly with the project team as well as to adapt to the local culture. I also formed strong friendships with my coworkers and even acquired a decent level Indonesian proficiency.

To me, working with my colleagues has been the best experience. On projects, we function like a SWAT team, navigating hurdles and challenges to get to our goal. Our difference in backgrounds forms our strength—our unique set of attributes and abilities enable us to deliver the best to our clients.

Like many young working adults, I also take the time to recharge and rejuvenate. I travel to reconnect with friends working in other countries. These trips often involve sampling and eating foreign cuisine, which is part and parcel of the fun!

My advice

Dive into the field of consulting with open eyes and an open mind. Be prepared to deal with personal and professional learning curves as there is much to know about different industries and technology-based solutions. If you need more insight into the practice, reach out to those already in the field to hear about their experience.
