I waited two years to apply to Accenture. I didn’t trust myself.
I felt like I wasn’t ready. And to be honest, I wasn’t.
I had no case experience, I didn’t have any contacts at the company, and I could barely confidently speak in front of a small group of people.
But I used those two years to #PREPARE. I used those two years to gain case experience. To #network with people at the company. To #PRACTICE for the position that I wanted to hold.
Last week I completed my internship at Accenture and the experience I gained was invaluable. The #knowledge I now have will help me greatly as I begin the Kelley School of Business #MSIS program this fall. The relationships that I created, I plan to keep for the rest of my lifetime.
I’m very happy and grateful to announce that I’ve received a full-time job offer in the #Atlanta office.
However, my point is this:
There is nothing wrong with being #strategic, going through a period of preparation, and ensuring that you are ready to take on the #blessing that you’ve asked for.
It's okay to take your time.
Never underestimate the power of preparation. Never underestimate the power of YOU.
Thanks for a great experience, Accenture.
