One of the biggest challenges in the job-search process is finding a way to make your CV or resume stand out when it can be one of hundreds—or even thousands—of applicants.

If you’re applying for an open position at Accenture, a referral from a current Accenture employee can help. Here’s why:

Three benefits of an employee referral

1. It can speed up the process.
Applications we receive through employee referrals may be more qualified than most, which can help accelerate the process.  

2. It can help you get to the interview phase.
People who apply through employee referrals tend to move forward in the interview process. They also can have a higher likelihood of receiving a job offer.

3. It can increase your job satisfaction.
Candidates hired via referral programs tend to report higher levels of job satisfaction.

How to apply with an employee referral

This simple process will help you obtain a referral from an Accenture friend or acquaintance.

1. Find the job that fits your skills.
Search Accenture open positions and find the right opportunity.

2. Submit your resume.
Upload your cover letter and CV or resume.

3. Leverage your social networks.
Search your LinkedIn networks for people who already work at Accenture.

4. Ask your Accenture contact for a referral.
Make sure you tell them what makes you the right candidate for the job. They’ll need that information when they complete the referral submission.
