Accenture

Digital Intern

Advice

Always show dedication and enthusiasm in everything you do because you never know what that might lead you to and also because there is always something to learn!

Summer Consulting Analyst

June - August 2020 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I felt welcomed and valued from the day I started. I felt supported by my project team and found it easy to make genuine connections, despite being in a virtual environment. I developed a great rapport with my manager, and she connected me with other Accenture employees to talk about my interests and experiences. I also loved all of the programming planned by the Summer Analyst Team, including the Student Leadership Conference and the Buddy Program!

Technology Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I liked that I was not just treated as an intern (getting coffee, filing, etc.). I was treated as a full-time Analyst and was given large amounts of responsibility. I also really enjoyed getting to network with other interns and employees and expand my network and knowledge about the industry I hope to join.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to start earlier! Accenture only offers two large on-boarding times (one for semester students and one for quarter students), and the one for quarter students started at the end of June. I wish I could have started right after finishing finals.

Advice

Ask questions and don't be afraid to take initiative. People are always going to be busy but if you make your presence known they will treat you with more respect and maybe even give you a cool new project to work on!

What I liked

I appreciated the opportunity to improve my skill sets in technical, business, and leadership contexts. Every employee I met from analyst to senior leadership was extremely willing to help me advance my career.

I wish I could have worked at Accenture for 12 weeks instead of 10, however I am very excited to return again next fall.

Advice

Applicants need to be professional, sharp, and willing to adapt to any situation. The project environment can be extremely variable, and therefore it is important to be both intellectually curious an agile.

Global Supply Chain intern

May - June 2019 • Ewing Township, NJ

What I liked

I liked learning the ins and outs of a warehouse that uses my major i am learning.

What I wish was different

I wish the interns and I had more responsibility and more of a clear direction as to what we were supposed to be doing. Also, I wish it was a desk job rather physical labor.

Consulting Analyst Intern

June - August 2018 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

You're surrounded by a bunch of really smart interns and it's a great working environment. The projects you work on are difficult, but they definitely make a difference.

What I wish was different

They don’t help you with housing, which can be difficult while living out-of-state. Also, they don’t match your talents to the project since much of the planning is last minute.

Advice

Make sure to network as much as you can.

Consulting Summer Analyst

June - August 2020 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Ownership. I had the opportunity to own my role, my work, and my Accenture relationships. Over the course of the summer, I was asked to run a client meeting, manage a living dashboard for client leadership, and share during a team-wide presentation. My managers relied on me the way they would a full-time analyst. The People. Without sacrificing an ounce of professionalism, Accenture’s culture is as welcoming as it gets. From my own teammates to managing directors I met for the first time, everyone is equally warm and candid. The Content. I joined one of Accenture’s Life Sciences accounts and learned about digital system readiness, supply chains, and the world of pharma. Each day, my work was current and stimulating.

What I wish was different

Because my role was grounded primarily in project management, I did not have as many opportunities to develop my skills in data analysis and visualization. That said, many summer analysts that I met had abundant opportunities to grow in this area. At the end of the day, your summer experience is highly dependent on the type of project work needed.

Advice

Take advantage of the incredible mentorship opportunities available to you. Don’t hesitate to grab time on senior-level employees’ calendars. They are genuinely eager to meet new faces, offer advice, and share their own experiences!

CDTS Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Irving, TX

What I liked

I loved the full-time people I had the chance to work with, the amount of responsibility given, and the culture of Accenture. It's a culture of work hard play hard, and keeping employees for the long run instead of having a high turnover rate.

What I wish was different

I wish I knew how much video conferencing and Excel was involved in the job, and that the majority of the office only comes in two times a week so it's mainly just a few people and the interns the rest of the time

Advice

Don't hesitate to ask questions early on, especially if you don't understand something on the computer! Also, get to know the people in the office beyond those you work with.

Management Consulting Intern

June - August 2020 • Washington, DC

What I liked

Though my experience was virtual, Accenture ensured that we still had a fulfilling experience. I got to work on a real project team and had the freedom to take my role in the project where I wanted it to go. On top of all of this, the culture at Accenture is unmatched. Everyone I met was happy to get to know me and was excited about my journey.

What I wish was different

I wish I had the opportunity to work in the office as well as work on a project that better aligned with my specific interests. However, I met incredible people and further solidified the role I wish to have in the future.

Advice

Be authentic. Share your goals, your strengths, and where you want to improve. Internships are designed to help us better prepare for the working world, so be unafraid to take risks and learn!

Technology Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I really liked the experience overall. I was placed on a real project and I was able to contribute to the actual product for the client. There were a lot of great networking opportunities, all the employees were really kind and welcoming, and there was a lot of great training opportunities to improve skills and gain valuable experience. There were also a lot of great intern events such as a nationwide conference, going to baseball games, and other really awesome experiences. Overall, I really liked a lot.

What I wish was different

The one aspect that I wish was different was knowing my project sooner so I could fill out additional paperwork sooner. Of course, this isn't always realistic as there is a lot of planning and coordination to add an intern to projects, but that was the only aspect that I wish was different.

Advice

One piece of advice is don't be afraid to reach out to full-time employees while interning. Everyone was really kind and welcoming and willing to talk to you as an intern. They were all more than willing to answer any questions, meet up for coffee, share their own experiences, and overall the people really made the summer great.

Technology Summer Analyst

June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

It's a very fun and exciting internship. You meet a lot of people from the Accenture company through networking events on Friday where everyone comes into the main office. Also, I got to work with some pretty cool technologies. You also get a chance to meet all the interns from across the country for a conference for one weekend. Overall, it's fast-paced and you meet a lot of people.

What I wish was different

I wish you knew what project you were assigned to earlier. You find out what project and what client you're on very late. You don't really have a voice in the type of stuff you want to learn, so whatever project you're assigned to you usually just go through with it unless you voice that you really don't want to do it.

Advice

Don't be shy. Everyone at the company is very fun and has a great story to tell. Listen, meet new people, step outside your comfort zone, and make good connections. Don't be afraid to do the same with your client company as well. Make the most of your time at Accenture.
