How to Get Hired
We asked Accenture for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Leadership – Because we are asked to solve our client’s most difficult problems, they expect our people to be leaders at every level.
Curiosity – We’re applying “the New” every day—new thinking, technology, and innovation, which means we need people who embody an entrepreneurial spirit with an unlimited appetite for learning and imagination.
Authenticity – Bring your authentic self to the table so we can learn from and inspire one another. At Accenture, we strive to create a truly human environment where people feel a real sense of belonging. Where they can be who they are, and be their best, professionally and personally.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Everyone is unique. Make sure your resume effectively highlights your differentiated experience, skills and accomplishments. We want to know what makes you, you.
Get to know us. We encourage you to build relationships with Accenture people. We offer a “Get Referred” tool that lets you easily search social and professional networks for Accenture employees—referral candidates are one of our top sources for talent. Still in school? We host numerous events at various universities across the U.S. where candidates can get to know Accenture and meet our people.
Stay informed. Attend our webinars and read our thought leadership and blogs to stay in the know about our innovations. Join our Talent Connection to discover more about what we do and the open opportunities that are available.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’re looking for people who are creative thinkers and strategists. People who are digitally savvy and keen on data analysis. In short, we’re looking for those with the skills needed to help our clients succeed in the digital era. Join us and help unlock, design and implement emerging technology, like Artificial Intelligence solutions, for some of the world’s most interesting companies. Powered by new data, new science and new technology, you’ll help drive digital transformation and help our clients make faster, smarter decisions.
