I am about to apply to Accenture’s Analyst Consulting Group graduate scheme. They provide two options, “Get Referred” and “Apply Online”:
Get Referred uses facebook/linkedin to find friends who currently work for Accenture that would be happy to vouch for you. Only CV and Cover Letter are provided.
Apply Online is a usual online application with many questions and also CV/Cover Letter upload.
I only have one friend, who is close, who works for Accenture as a first year analyst. Is it worth taking the “Get Referred” or “Apply Online” path. Thanks for any help or advice provided!
