Preparing military community for high-tech careers
February 1, 2022
Military community individuals can find meaningful careers in technology at Accenture Federal Services.
We partner and invest to help them get the support and skills needed for a smooth transition.
Hear stories from recent hires who are pursuing the next chapter in their careers and doing work that matters.
In 2020, Accenture exceeded a milestone goal of hiring 5,000 veterans by 2020. Accenture Federal Services is proud to be part of this effort through our Impact Hiring & Workforce Development programs where we train and hire qualified transitioning military members, veterans, and military spouses, and as a result, continue to rank highly as an organization where those individuals want to work.
"[The program] leveled the playing field for a novice in Cyber security like me who did not have the years of experience that other candidates had."
— Ken Isaiah Zaragoza, Security Delivery Senior Analyst – Accenture Federal Services
By engaging the military community in various programs, we equip participants with in-demand skills and resources needed to pivot to careers in the high-tech field. As an active partner in programs such as Apprenticeship in Training Programs, Internship Programs, Employer Consortiums, and Corporate Citizenship give-back programs, transitioning military members, veterans, and military spouses are finding meaningful careers at Accenture Federal Services.
By highlighting their stories, we hope to inspire the next group of military community individuals in technology at Accenture.
