Good evening! I am looking for someone who is currently working with Accenture or a Veteran who has recently been hired there. Any intro would be greatly appreciated!
You should reach out to Joshua Talbott who is the veteran recruiter for Accenture and its JMO program. He was very helpful when I was considering Accenture earlier last year. Below is his email and Linkedin profile.

Best of luck!
Hi Nathan, I have a friend who serves as a Management Consultant in Accenture’s San Francisco office for the last year-and-a-half. He’s a former Marine Corps Officer turned Veteran and pretty influential in the military veteran community.
During my time leading MVA initiatives and programming at a private non-private institution of higher learning here in NYC, he served as the Northeast Regional Director of FourBlock. I would host him on campus to give info sessions to our students vets once a semester and we collaborated strongly.
In the ethos of “vets helping vets” I’m certain he’ll hop on an informational call with you at the very least. Let me know if you would like for me to reach out to him.
I know someone in IT who works there and is a veteran. Would you like an introduction?
You may wish to look at the Informational Interview process with someone in the career field you are interested in. Be sure and look up the rules on informational interviewing, as it is clearly not seeking a position more than it is seeking advice from a professional in the field you are going into. It does a couple of things, it makes you prepare and introduction (elevator pitch abbreviated to get by gate keepers.) Be sure to mention you are a veteran or a service member seeking career assistance or help in researching a particular career. Most everyone likes to assist people or help people, especially veterans. If you start with anything to do with employment you will be directed to the companies employment web site.
It is very positive they have a veteran recruiting office, but still present your self in your new career oriented language. Most veteran representatives inside companies hear feed back on military lingo and managers not understanding the candidates. They(veteran recruiting) can only assist so much. Good luck, thanks for your service and God Bless.
Thank you, Jonathan! I will contact him shortly.
