Military professionals are known for their strong work ethic, commitment to excellence, attention to detail, 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 Software Engineering 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 Java Programming online program. Accenture is offering the premium version of the course, where coaches actively support students and students earn a Verified Certificate.
In this introductory course, you'll learn and practice essential computer science concepts using the Java programming language. You'll learn about Object Oriented Programming, a technique that allows you to use code written by other programmers in your own programs. You'll put your new Java 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 Software Engineering 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 Java 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.
Accenture is committed to helping military service members make the transition to rewarding careers in the private sector. In fact, more than 1,000 former military personnel work at Accenture in the United States today, and that number continues to grow.
Accenture recently launched a Junior Military Officer (JMO) program to identify and hire talented younger veterans into account leadership roles within Accenture Operations in the United States. New JMOs are already providing a wide range of services to our clients, such as technology application management, infrastructure management and systems integration, as well as business process outsourcing services, including finance and accounting, procurement and human resources. As our JMOs begin their careers at Accenture, they will be supported by training and mentorship programs to ensure their successful transition.
