I had really good 2 interviews yesterday. HR interview was in depth but pretty standard. After that she started asking me if you have applied to somewhere else, where does accenture stand for you, she straight away told me that I would fit in Technology consulting and I told her yes thats what I want. She told me that many times what happens is that at the time of interview candidate is very flexible but when they offer a job with an alignment they become quite choosy, so thats why she straight away said we’ll put you in Technology consulting, to which I agreed.
Then we started to have general chat about cultures and accenture projects. She said that I would definitely hear back in 24 to 48 hours. She told me to wait till tuesday max as Monday is a bank holiday.
Interview with senior manager was classic. A very laid back man, and explained me the whole procedure of the interview and then handed over me the case study and himself went outside as he didnt want me to be tensed. I did my case study in 15 minutes and then we started having discussion. Case study was about the merger of 2 banks. Since I am from IT Data centre background in Banking I could relate to that and he was really happy and appreciated my answers. he also asked me if I have one of the board of directors in lift and I have to tell him why he should choose accenture for this particular task in 3-4 minutes. I gave a good answer to that as well.
After that he asked me general questions from my CV and background, nothing serious. Then I started asking him questions and he was very frank in answering them. In the end he said “It was a good interview”. He then said I would right everything down in computer and would forwarded it to HR who would get back to me within 48 working hours.
So I am now just waiting…fingers crossed!
