"Accenture’s HR TAP gave me opportunities to interact and work with some of the most senior leaders in the organization."

How I put change in motion

As a Talent Strategy Manager, I study our people’s skill sets and help determine how and when they may need to evolve to succeed into the future. I try to forecast what actions may be needed to tailor our skill levels to match our growth priorities.

My TAP experience

In 2016, Accenture HR leaders were deeply involved in establishing the Talent Accelerator Program (TAP) and intent on ensuring its success. I had the opportunity to interact personally with those leaders during my internship, which was a fantastic way to learn how HR works in a huge organization like Accenture.

I attribute the business acumen and functional capabilities I have acquired so far at Accenture to my TAP rotational assignments. My three-month international rotation in Dublin, Ireland, was a wonderful experience in adapting to a local culture.

I’ve also had the opportunity to learn about the latest cutting-edge technologies. Virtual reality (VR) continues to evolve as a valuable technology for business and industry. At the Dublin site, I was able to participate in fascinating virtual-reality experiments.

A day in my life

A typical day frequently involves connecting with TAP peers around the world. The camaraderie and friendships you make in the program stay with you throughout your Accenture career.

I'm also working on transformation projects, which ultimately can change and elevate our ways of working and the ways we communicate with the rest of the business.

In my spare time, I go for runs along Marina Bay in downtown Singapore, and on weekends I’ll play golf. It’s always nice to be out in the sun and I treat it as a way of digital detox.

“If you’re an aspiring HR professional, Accenture’s HR TAP program can open up many interesting pathways for you.”

My advice

If you’re an aspiring HR professional, the TAP program can open many interesting pathways for you. To be successful, never stop exploring and pursuing new knowledge.
