had my interview recently and all went well, now am off to the AC, this is the real deal.
I found the first phone interview to be pretty straight forward, similar questions to those found on this site.
A word of caution though, DO NOT mention a single point that you cannot back up! i realised the lady interviewing me kept on skipping from her main points and focused on whatever i was saying, to such an extend that i believed i was in control of the interview. If you say your third year project was the hardest tech project you’ve ever done, be ready to back it up, say why it was hard and how you dealt with the situation!
Also, i cannot stress this far enough! Know what accenture does, know its competitors (IBM, EDS, HP, Capgemini etc) differentiate the roles in ATS and those in consultancy

Ok, so my experience with accenture recruitment has been great so far, i was invited to the interview (HR + Tech) 12 hours after my telephone interview. I also received an offer, the total time it took was a mere two weeks for the entire process!!
I prepared well for the interviews. I would like to say, even if i recorded the interview and posted it online it will not necessarily help you.

the questions in the tech interview are along the lines of your strength and what you have on your CV, do yourself a favour and revise any languages you have quoted, a particular emphasis would be on .Net, Java, SQL,Oracle. If you indicate you have come across any of these, be ready for some real probing.

Also know the SDLC like the back of your hand. it is a software engineering role, and i doubt if a question on this will miss out. know the different methodologies, waterfall, agile, xp, v model etc. you dont need to know them in detail, but have at least three well rehearsed methodologies.

The HR interview is the same old questions you have been asked 100 times before, just be friendly and chatty with them, but dont forget its still an interview, even when the interviewer expresses their passion for dogs, expressions like “aaaawwww”, “how sweet”, “cute”, etc are not really welcomed :slight_smile:

you can never prepare too much, use your application form and cv to judge what needs to be revised, if its not in your CV chances are you wont need to worry about it, although a particular interest in java and .Net might be advantageous.

One last bit of advice, you have to be pro active, do you want to know what exactly they do in ATS? HR wont help you? look up recent graduate joiners on linkedin and send them a message requesting help, give them your email address. if that doesnt work use the names from linkedin and find them on facebook! EVERYONE checks their facebook, thats a sure way of getting a reply. Maintain professionalism while dealing with them, remember they cant influence the decision to get you an offer, but they can definitely influence HR to decline you if you are a twat!

If you are offered some water, TAKE IT! you will NEED IT!!

Good luck people. PM me if you need particular info
