Hi there, my name is Thomas and I’m from Ballyhaunis County Mayo. I am currently a 3rd year Science Education student in DCU. My specialism subjects are mathematics and physics.
I applied to this internship to gain first-hand experience in a STEM industry so I can take the experience into the classroom to help promote to my students a career in STEM. When I embark on my teaching career, I want to be able to inspire my students to pursue careers in areas such as mathematics and science. This internship will afford me the opportunity to go out into the STEM workforce, allowing me to gain the experience to help me shape how I will teach the young adults of the future.
I’m delighted to be working with Accenture for summer 2021. Accenture is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company based in Dublin. My internship will be carried out remotely for 12 weeks. My role in the company is in the technology department and I can’t wait to get started.
