About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

It was probably the top 10 events in my life! I met so many people for different backgrounds and got to thoroughly enjoy the 4 days. It didn’t feel like I was being recruited for a job, it just felt like I was having a good time with some great people!

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I have felt extremely valued at Accenture, from day 1 to working 9 months at the company. Not once have I felt uncomfortable or as if I could not reach out for help if it was required. Everyone has made me feel at ease the whole way through. Starting work can be overwhelming but it was a smooth transition.

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

I was given so much guidance from the HR/recruitment team to alumni members who I met at the event over the course of the few days. Even before we started we were able to join a web chat to talk to them to understand what we were getting ourselves into!

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The skills and knowledge I gained over the course of the few days definitely made it easier for me, when I started at Accenture. There was certain information I had obtained that I wouldn’t have otherwise through other recruitment processes! I always had people I knew to talk to for help or advice.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

It was incredibly well structured. It had a range of activities for us to get invlolved in. From getting stuck in the group project, to getting to play around with some of their new technology. I have been to loads of recruitment processes but this was by far the best one!

10/10

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

The general atmosphere was relaxed and incredibly motivating, I didn’t once feel under pressure to act a certain way. I was able to be myself throughout the entire process, and not once did I feel like I couldn’t ask for help. It was planned and executed incredibly well thanks to the recruitment team.

7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

The company invested in me from day 1. From staring the tech vis, going to our intital training in India to also having a few weeks to train in various courses of our choice. As well working we our encouraged to keep doing side desk training courses at any time as we like.

5/10

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

It was thou roughly helpful. I stepped out of university having graduated in maths and looking for roles in finance. Only after attending the tech vis did I even consider a career in tech. It was supposed to be an experience but I came away with a whole career path change and I am super happy!

10/10

9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

The 4 day insight made it absolutely clear that this was the type of company I wanted to work for. The people at Accenture is something that everyone raves about when I was doing my research and I didn’t quite understand it but once I started and now 9 months down the line I truly understand what they mean!

10/10

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

It was the moment that actually changed my plans totally! I was looking to pursue a career in a totally different direction but the tech vis and especially Accenture made it hard for me to not to work for them and pursue technology! Honestly it was the Best decision ever!

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

There were many opportunities for us to go find the information we required. From speaking to members of leadership to alumni graduates who had previously attended the tech vis, it was incredibly helpful

The best! We got to attend a session at flight club in shoreditch, socialise with our peers and the alumni members of the tech vis from the previous round over food and drinks
