"My favorite part of my current project is that it’s similar to working for a startup, but backed by the power and resources of Accenture."

What I do

I’m in the Consulting Development Program (CDP), where we have the opportunity to rotate to different client projects and roles at Accenture. I’ve attended the Digital World conference, which brings together Accenture Digital people from across the globe to learn from each other and tackle some of the world’s greatest problems through innovative digital solutions; led numerous design-thinking workshops; launched a resource community for my CDP peers; and facilitated a potential partnership between Accenture and a digital health accelerator—all in my first year in the program.

Currently, I’m on a team that helped launch a new small-business insurance company with an innovative product that will disrupt the industry. We created everything from the branding to the user experience to the technical infrastructure. I’ve gained end-to-end project experience, and my favorite part is that it’s similar to working for a startup, but backed by the power and resources of Accenture.

A day in my life

My day usually kicks off with a team stand-up meeting, and then I focus on either strategizing, planning, executing or reporting on direct marketing campaigns within either our email or direct mail channels. Outside of the work I do for my main client, I frequently lead and support design-thinking workshops and am helping grow Accenture’s presence in the digital health ecosystem by collaborating with accelerators, incubators and startups in the health and life sciences industries.

My favorite part about working for Accenture is being exposed to challenging, innovative opportunities to do work that’s transforming the world, and feeling supported and empowered to accept them. Having confidence and trust from our colleagues and leaders allows us to take smart risks and innovate, both internally and with our clients.

My advice

This is the best advice I’ve ever received: “An imperfect solution implemented now is better than a perfect solution that is never implemented.”

To succeed in consulting, be yourself and speak up about your passions. There are so many opportunities at Accenture across almost every industry and function; almost anything is in reach. Speak up about your interests rather than trying to fit a mold.
