What I Do

The work I do varies by project. I work within the Consumer Goods and Services (CG&S) sector so I have the great fortune of working with products that I can see at retailers every day. I concentrate primarily on Sales and Marketing, specifically commercial process improvement for alcoholic beverage clients. I help our clients get their products to market in a timely, cost-effective manner.

Day in my Life

I start the day out by walking to work if the client site is close by to get some exercise. When I get to work, I spend time prioritizing what I need to accomplish that day and the next day. Usually it entails understanding my clients’ unique challenges, developing tailored solutions, and/or presenting our work to the client.

Taking the time to prioritize in the morning not only sets my direction for the day, but it also helps me maintain my work/life balance. This simple exercise keeps me on task and helps me realize what items I can leave on the table to address the next day. Then I can spend my evenings working out, catching up with family and experiencing the client’s city that I am visiting!

Outside the Office

I like to experience different cultures, cuisine and sceneries throughout the U.S. If you haven’t had Tex-Mex and BBQ in Houston, TX, I highly suggest it! Go straight from Houston to Charlotte, NC and the BBQ is completely different. Aside from travelling, which goes hand-in-hand with my job, I like to play with dogs. With my passion for travelling, I don’t own a pet dog, but instead have visited the Animal Cruelty Society a few times to walk the dogs. Melody was one of my favorite young pups that I was able to spend a day with.

My Advice

My guess is that you probably have many professional interests. Lucky for you, Accenture has expertise in a large number of fields! My advice is to manage your career. Our management team and peers are excited to talk to you about what they do at Accenture, and how your background may fit in, which makes this a perfect place to learn and grow. Accenture values an inquisitive personality and natural ability to learn. I talked with many people across technology, strategy, and various other industries until I found the CG&S community where I now have a close network of colleagues.
