Company Profile:

As a global management consulting, outsourcing and technology services company with approximately 266,000 people working around the world, Accenture is constantly seeking the world's best talent. Part of this effort is to identify and hire military veterans. Military skills such as leadership, discipline, teamwork and organizational skills are relevant and transferable to Accenture's work – as are the highly specialized technology and functional skills that many learn during their service.

Military professionals are known for their strong work ethic, commitment to excellence, attention to detail, and ability to succeed in a challenging environment, exemplifying many of the same core values Accenture strives for. The lessons learned as military men and women are very transferable to the work they do. Leadership, discipline, organization, teamwork, and doing what it takes to get the job done are some of the areas in which military experience directly applies to their work. 

Military Recruiting Programs:

Accenture's military recruiting team understands how to effectively assess a military resume and recognize the skills and abilities of veterans and is dedicated to identifying and assessing candidates from the armed forces. Additionally, they help veterans create resumes and offer information on corporate job searches and the interview process. An example of this is their new online Military Career Coach tool that provides tips and coaching for veterans seeking employment. This includes videos and instructional content to help veterans learn about career planning, resume writing, networking, interviewing and social media and is part of their overall commitment to being a military-friendly employer.

Accenture is committed to supporting veterans' transition from military to civilian work by providing skills translation, resume and interview coaching and training opportunities to improve access to careers at Accenture or other companies. More than 100 Accenture executives are serving as mentors to former & transitioning servicemembers.  Helpful Links:
