How I spend my days here at Accenture changes with each new assignment I get. I can shift from coordinating the configuration of a client’s SAP system, to working on updates to be sent to the management. One day I can be monitoring budget use for a government organization, while next day I can be on a conference call developing a business case with a multinational company. It never gets boring.
The most exciting project I’ve worked on in a while is a business transformation project. I was able to work within a big team and witness the outcome of the project implementation. As I was there from the earliest stages of planning to the moment the system went live, this experience was truly exhilarating for me.
My teammates and I work in highly intuitive patterns that champion efficiency. Everyone is collaborative and focused on their tasks and there’s a flat hierarchy governing the group–things get done quickly and project leads are notified of any issues as early as possible.
My current role has helped me sharpen my communication capabilities. Each project involves plenty of interaction with the client and the internal team members. Every deployment has me creating comprehensive reports illustrating the progress made within each project phase. This helps me constantly hone my speaking and writing skills.
Perhaps my favorite thing about working here is the ease and quickness with which I learn new things on-the-job from those more experienced in their field. At Accenture, there’s an expert in every area of operation who is always eager to show you how to properly execute their specific tasks and craft their deliverables.
That said, I make sure to offset my busy week by spending my weekends doing activities I love, such as traveling and sports. Joining the interest groups at Accenture Recreation Club has allowed me to try out sports I have little to no experience with, like futsal, badminton, wakeboarding and dragon boat. I always enjoy the mood boost that physical exercise sparks, not to mention the sense of camaraderie that group sports naturally creates.
