The Emerging Technologies practice is centered around the technologies listed above. If you're being recruited for locations outside of DC or San Antonio it could be for a specific role with a client in another location.


They pinged me today. Please do share any insights you may gather

Assuming you mean Accenture Federal Services and not Financial Services?

If it is the former, you probably have a background/skill set in Salesforce, ServiceNow, or SaaS platforms?

@A1 the message I got literally said "Accenture FS" exactly like OP's so uh, that's a good question. Not sure either of us know yet

Do you have a background in any of the technologies mentioned above?

SaaS yes

You're being recruited for Accenture Federal Services. Assuming you're DC or San Antonio based. What specific questions do you have?

Hmm... I'm Dallas-based and my skillset is mainly digital forensics/e-discovery, data governance, and datacenter infrastructure. He was trying to recruit me into either Denver or the west coast. So now I'm really perplexed

Folks, I suspect this is actually part of the ACN Financial Services Tech Advisory practice. Within the practice one of the groups focuses on Emerging Technology (another is Cloud, New IT, Security, etc). So I dont think this is Federal, but rather Financial Services.

Internally FS typically refers to Financial Services.

Really poor form on the recruiter's part not to spell out acronyms though.

No longer feel qualified to apply for actual DS roles outside because I've not done any ML in so long.
