"Trends and tech are changing fast. Stay ahead of what’s possible. And do the things you love—you will achieve great results."

What I do

I work in Industry X, innovating with cutting-edge technologies, including internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI). I’m part of a development team that works on the interface between users and developers of a new application. I collect and analyze user needs, share them with developers, test new functionalities and train users on the new tools we develop.

A day in my life

My current project is game-changing for the client—and my career. We’re proposing a digital solution that will improve collaboration, reduce time to market and increase product quality. It’s one of the largest programs the client has commissioned, and it will be a complete transformation for the company. I‘ve learned how to use Product Lifecycle Management tools from unique points of view—functionally, as users would, and I’ve also gained in-depth knowledge of the technical operations.

Working in technology means my days are never boring. I spend my time in business meetings with users, in agile ceremonies (we work according to the agile scrum method), performing functional tests, writing functional specifications and analyzing incidents. I get to develop skills in different domains when working on-site, and I also keep my knowledge up-to-date thanks to the richness of Accenture’s learning and development programs.

My advice

The most important advice I’ve ever received: Learn to say no. It will help you stay efficient in your activities. It’s also important to have “big ears.” Stay balanced, and always be curious. If you’re interested in a job like mine, be humble and constantly demonstrate your desire to learn from others. Keep learning from the people around you.
