While the consulting work that our interns do during the summer is an important component of the internship, at Accenture, we strive to make this experience as well-rounded as possible. Our interns are encouraged to participate in special training that is designed for them such as lunch and learn sessions; they have the opportunity to network with fellow interns, recent hires and other consulting professionals; and each year they help give back to the community through our annual Intern Day of Service.
In addition, undergraduate students interning with us the summer before their senior year attend a three-day leadership conference at our training facility in St. Charles, Illinois. The conference provides interns with the opportunity to explore Accenture’s commitment to professional development, build useful skills that they can apply in both academic and professional settings, and network with Accenture executives and employees.
Watch highlights from a previous Accenture Student Leadership Conference.
