Accenture Veteran Technology Training Program
Bring your talent and passion to an organization at the forefront of business, technology and innovation. Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, is looking for military service members and veterans to join us and provide programming and technology implementation services that help our clients become high-performance businesses and governments. We are excited to offer a unique training program for military service members and veterans who want to pursue a career in technology and software engineering.
Military service members and veterans
Military professionals are known for their strong work ethic, commitment to excellence, and ability to succeed in a challenging environment, exemplifying many of the same core values we live at Accenture. The lessons learned as military men and women are very transferable to the work we 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 our work.
We are excited to offer a unique training program for military service members and veterans who want to pursue a career in technology and software engineering. The Accenture Veteran Technology Training Program is a two-month training program that will equip veterans with the technical skills they need to position themselves for employment as an Entry Level Technology Associate with Accenture.
To deliver this program, Accenture is partnering with Udacity, an online university focused on bridging the gap between real-world skills, relevant education, and employment. Participants selected for the Accenture Veteran Technology Training Program will enroll, free of charge, in Udacity's Intro to Programming online program.
In this introductory course, you'll learn and practice essential computer science concepts using multiple programming languages. You'll learn about Object Oriented Programming, a concept that binds together the data and functions that manipulate the data, and that keeps both safe from outside interference and misuse. You'll put your new programming skills to the test by solving real-world problems faced by software engineers.
Upon successful completion of the training course, participants will be granted an interview with Accenture for the Entry Level Technology Associate position, which is part of our global network of technology experts. If ultimately hired for this full-time position, you will apply your military background and new programming skills to assist with the development, delivery and management of technology-based business solutions. You will continue to develop new skills, through Accenture's robust training curriculum.
As an Entry Level Technology Associate, you will assist with the development, delivery and management of technology-based business solutions. You may work on coding, testing and implementing configuration changes; assist in the design of software applications to meet both functional and technical requirements; or provide project management support.
You will be part of our global network of technology experts that provides programming and technology implementation services for clients across the entire range of industry sectors. From application development and architecture to software maintenance and systems administration, we help turn innovation into effective technology solutions.
As part of our global team, you'll work with the latest software and leading-edge development tools giving you the opportunity to enhance your skills and hone your expertise in a collaborative and supportive environment.
Every step of the way you're learning, growing, and building yourself - getting ready to meet the next challenge that comes your way.
