Everything About My Accenture Experience as a Technology Consultant

I always get asked if I liked Accenture, what did I do, how was my experience, all those questions, but I never really answered it in a video because it’s always an evolving answer, but now that I left, I give a very detailed and thorough answer! Many people ask me for a coffee chat to talk about my experience at Accenture, so here it is all in one video! Please note that this is just my experience, and I highly recommend you that network around with people at Accenture for the particular office, business unit and even role to really learn how your experience could be like or learn from many different people if you want to get a sense of Accenture as a whole!

My Biggest Issue with Technology Consulting: A Big Reason Why I Left Accenture

The nature of project-based work is unpredictable and sometimes out of your control based off of the many factors that put you in a powerless position. This video will go over my biggest issue with technology consulting and something you should be aware of as well as this can happen to anyone in any consulting firm or field.

I waited for a few months to film this video because I was angry, frustrated, and upset. You may even still hear some anger and frustration in this video because sometimes you’re put in a powerless position, but sometimes you need to take your career in your own hands.

Have you experienced this? What would you do in this situation if this were you?

TRAVEL VLOG: Nashville, Chattanooga, Atlanta | Broadway, Hot Chicken, Ruby Falls, & Lookout Mountain

After my last week at Accenture, Addison and I went on a trip to Nashville, Chattanooga, and Atlanta for fun! We explored Downtown Nashville, Vanderbilt University, and Broadway (and eating hot chicken at Hattie B’s!), then we went to Chattanooga for Ruby Falls, Incline Railway, Lookout Mountain, and Point Park! We then went to Atlanta and then headed back home!

WORK WEEK IN MY LIFE VLOG: My Last Week at Accenture | Rolling Off, Transitioning, Going to Office

I landed a technology consulting job at Accenture when I graduated back in 2018, and I’ve been at Accenture for 3 years, so I’m bittersweet for closing this chapter with this last week vlog! It has been an amazing experience whether it be meeting people (Accenture and clients), amazing experiences and memories, and all of the wealth of knowledge I learned about navigating the workplace, client engagements, and Accenture in general! Here’s a last tribute to my time at Accenture with this vlog from rolling off my last client project, transitioning off with knowledge transfer sessions for the multiple hats I wear, and going to the office and saying goodbye! It’s not a goodbye, but rather a see you later!

HOW I GOT MY JOB AT GOOGLE: Google Interviews, Preparation, Offer, & Why I Chose Google

I thought for a long time I was going to be at Accenture for a long time, but when a recruiter at Google reached out to me about this Advertising Solutions Architect role out of gTech Professional Services at Google, I had to say yes! I went in not thinking I was going to get the offer, but when I got the offer, I was so elated! Here is my entire process from when they reached out to me, preparing the interviews, the actual interviews themselves, and all the way to accepting the offer!

I left my technology consulting job at Accenture for… | WHY, HOW, WHERE TO NEXT?

This has been a big secret I’ve been holding for three months now! My last day as a Workday Financials technology consultant at Accenture was March 2, 2022 and my first day at my new company and new role starts on March 14! I explain why I start looking, how I started looking, the timeline of what exactly happened (separate video on the actual interview process coming soon!) and the big reveal of my new role and company! So excited for this new step in my career!

JOB HUNTING After College: Finding Jobs, Applications, Interviews, Compensation

I’ve only known how to hunt for jobs for internships and for my one job at Accenture (my first job application in college for entry level and landed it!), but because I had family that stayed in the same job for decades and friends that have not changed jobs yet, I had to learn a lot of this alone in this journey on how they actually differ and what to watch out for, so here are my lessons learned! Maybe this will help you!

Important Questions To Ask the Interviewer in a Job Interview

We’re always told to ask good questions after (or even during) a job interview, but instead of asking meaningless questions, here are some good questions to ask in a job interview to not only impress the interviewers but also for you to find out if this job and company are right for you!

Are you Pigeonholing yourself in Technology Consulting?

I get this question all the time if you’re pigeonholing yourself with technology consulting for management or strategy consulting, for non-tech roles or even with software specialties and certifications and the transferability to other roles outside of those specialties. I talk it all out here!
