Job Description


We are:
Accenture supports people with both their professional and personal goals and understands the latter sometimes requires a person to take a career break.  The Accenture Technology Return to Work Program is a 16-week paid internship program, taking place in Minneapolis for experienced Technology focused professionals.  It is designed to ensure individuals seeking to return to work after a break are given the re-entry support and training they need to thrive.  For more information on the Return to Work program, please see our landing page:

You are:
A Technology professional with a passion for learning who is looking to re-start or resume your career after a break of 18 months or more.

The work:
You will have an opportunity to learn the newest emerging technologies and delivery methods via classroom training and on-the-job experience at some of our largest Clients.  You will be part of a strong community of like-minded people who will help ease your transition back to work and share experiences, tips and advice. 

Working with us in Accenture Technology, you will have the opportunity to unleash your skills and transform the world around you using the latest digital methodologies and design thinking; such as, Cloud, AI, Intelligent Automation, DevOps and Agile.  Through a career at Accenture you will have the opportunity to implement innovative solutions to help clients stay ahead of the technology curve.

Upon successful completion of the program, Accenture will evaluate an opportunity for full-time regular employment.  If hired, Accenture will make an effort to provide in-town work for the first year.  There is always the possibility your skills may be needed by clients who are not local, which would require weekly travel.  In addition, all new employees are required to live within a 90-minute ground commute of an Accenture office.
