Life at Avanade with Joe Bessette
- Posted on February 16, 2017
After serving in the US military, I joined Avanade as an opportunity to build my career in the civilian world. Over the past five years I’ve had the opportunity to grow professionally in our fast-growing organization.
When first joining Avanade, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of similarities I found between this IT consulting company and my life in the military. I have the opportunity to partner with colleagues from around the globe in order to bring a project together, I’m always seeking new ways to motivate the team think differently and to achieve common goals, and the comradery built here amongst talented and driven people makes me feel right at home. It’s rewarding to collaborate with my team and drive real results for our clients and their customers.
I’m proud that Avanade supports veterans in the ways they do – including paid military leave and veteran recruiting, which I personally get the chance to support. I also appreciate the balance I’m able to find between my work life and personal passions. I feel supported in a very genuine way that allows me to take on new experiences outside of the office and spend time with my family.
Every day at Avanade is different, which is what motivates and excites me. If you’re a veteran ready to take on your career, join us: www.avanade.com/careers
