Sidharth Chopra: Becoming a US Consultant as an International Student | TECHNOLOGY PROFESSIONALS

I met Sid back in college at Boston University when recruiting for the Personal Finance Club, and we both were on our journeys towards consulting!

We talk about his experience as an international student, going through the recruitment process at Deloitte, and his current consulting experience now as well as a big tip he shared to us for international students bypassing the H1B lottery!

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?

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!

Why I Pursued Consulting

Here are the reasons why I pursued consulting and this could be the reason why you should too! Consulting can provide a wealth of experience and some can argue that one year in consulting would provide more experience than one year in a non-consulting role. Would you agree?

Why are you pursuing consulting? Would you consider consulting after seeing why I pursued consulting?

HOW TO GET A JOB IN TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING: Application Strategy | CAREER COACHING WITH CHRISTINE

I worked with Ivan on a job application strategy to enter into technology consulting! Sometimes pivoting in isn’t that hard if you think about the important and relevant skills needed and pull it from everywhere, not just your work experience! We also spoke about how to stand out by networking (and some juicy tips using Linkedin), as well as the interview process and how to prepare! I’ve covered in previous episodes about case interviews and my YouTube channel also has a lot of resources on that! Check out PrepLounge as well!
