What’s great about Accenture is that it gives new graduates like me a chance to jump start our career and help us learn along the way. I heard about the Emerging Technologist Development Program (ETDP) in 2012, under the Learn and Earn initiative of the Singapore Workforce Development Agency. I signed up for it immediately while earning my degree in Business IT at the Singapore Polytechnic.
The recruitment process was smooth. The initial interview was done online through a video call, followed by an interview with an Accenture senior manager.
Signing up for ETDP gave me an advantage among my peers. It helped me gain experience to progress in my career and select a specialization if I decide to pursue further studies in the future. It also helped me be recruited to Accenture in 2015 following my graduation from university.
To the future applicants of the program, I would advise them to be confident, familiarize themselves with the company and the work it does.
