Many people dream of a job that lets them grow their career and see the world at the same time. Fortunately for me, that’s not a dream—it’s a reality.
As a Peruvian native, I have always been intrigued by traveling and learning English, because I believed it could open many doors for me. When the opportunity to join Accenture’s U.K. office presented itself, I did not hesitate. I jumped straight in. It offered the perfect opportunity to work in a different country and, of course, learn the language.
Eye-opening cultural experiences
My tenure at Accenture has exposed me to a variety of experiences and cultures. I visited a client warehouse in Australia, which led to an invitation to a front-row seat to a rugby match. For someone who grew up on and loves rice, I found a new appreciation for Spanish cuisine in Madrid.
And what would life be without karaoke? I sang my heart out during a round of karaoke with my colleagues in the Philippines. We followed that up with walks on the sandy beaches of Boracay Island, which I believe is one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
A work environment that helps you thrive
What I love about being part of Accenture is not only the opportunity to travel the world as part of a global network, but the fact that the company walks the talk when it comes to living out our values.
I have worked at other firms, and what really makes that Accenture stand out is they embody what they stand for. It’s a truly human organization, where you are encouraged to be your true, authentic self and do work that really makes a difference.
I have the space to work independently, yet I never feel like I am left to my own devices to just figure things out on my own. My colleagues are always there, rooting for me to win when I face challenges. I can confidently face clients knowing that Accenture has my back. Each day, I get up and I want to do my best because of the level of trust, confidence and support I am given.There’s no place like home—and abroad
My next career move is to relocate to the U.S. to join my fiancé. My managers are working very hard to make this move a reality. It feels great to know that the company values me and trusts that I can still deliver, regardless of my location.
The all too familiar saying, “There’s no place like home,” rings true to me. In my case, there is no place like Accenture.
