Externship at Accenture This Summer

This opportunity is for two days of virtual professional development for sophomores or juniors. This externship is two days of FREE professional development at Accenture, a technology company located in Hudson Yards in Manhattan. This is great  way to network with professionals at a technology company and also with your peers at other schools. 

The company describes this Externship as:

“Elevate to Innovate: An Accenture Diversity Externship is a virtual two day professional development experience where participants can explore the world of technology innovation and professional services! Join us and learn how to jump into a tech career.

Students will participate in learning sessions, networking, and engagement activities focused on how technology can solve pressing business challenges. Students will develop industry acumen, build long-lasting relationships, develop in-demand tech skills and walk away with an understanding of Accenture, our culture and entry-level opportunities.”
