This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
I thought I would reach out and advertise a role I am working on in Toronto for a Java Architect. See description below.
It's important to note that Accenture will not be providing relocation expenses nor visa sponsorship for this role.
It is also important to note that you must be a Canadian citizen in order to qualify for the TN visa that may be required for the role.
Yes the job is in Toronto, however, all of our consultants must be open to 100% travel during the week to facilitate supporting other clients in North America.
If you are interested in hearing more about the role, or Accenture specifically, please send me an email: derek.iddison at Accenture dot com.

Accenture's Consulting workforce is involved in business consulting, process design work and the application of technologies to business. A career in Consulting is varied and stimulating because each project presents a new challenge and will give you exposure to new clients, business issues, technologies and people. We need people who are able to challenge conventional thought, offer unique perspectives and conceive more innovative solutions for our clients.
Working as a consultant with Accenture, you will build core business, technology and industry expertise helping to deliver world-class business and technology solutions that enable clients to become high performance businesses. Consultants must be professionals who have an interest in how business processes work and interact. In addition, consultants need to apply their skills in project and program management while exhibiting leadership in process re-engineering and implementation of process, technology, and organizational change. Finally, consultants also need to have a working knowledge of the industry and/or the functional areas they serve.
The Consulting workforce is made up of three groups: Management Consulting, Systems Integration Consulting and Technology Consulting. This consulting group structure provides outstanding opportunities to develop highly specialized skills that will help you advance your career.
Systems Integration Consulting professionals are responsible for delivering large-scale, complex programs that marry processes with technology to help our clients achieve high performance.
Technology Architecture professionals use highly prescriptive and structured processes (or architecture) to design and build high-volume, mission-critical solutions.
As the successful candidate you will have a deep background architecting industry leading solutions in a diverse technical environment. You will have extensive SOA, integration, and open-source knowledge with exposure to a wide-range of IT solutions and platforms, such as legacy systems and Java based web applications.
