Thanks for the advice, I’ve decided to go with shirt, jacket and shirt as that’s the safest bet. Good quality office attire is really expensive though!
Ooh your friend has been through the ACN process already? Does he have any tips for the assessment centre
For the telephone interview, I had to answer a lot of competency based questions - I think about 7 or 8 in total, so make sure you prepare answers based on the following lines: leadership, communication, dealing with a difficult situation, problem solving and teamwork.
Just be sure you have enough examples for the length of the interview and you should be ok. I would also suggest looking at the case studies on Accenture’s website as I was asked to talk in detail about one of Accenture’s projects and successes. As long as you have done your research on the company, consulting as a career and can back up any competency based qns with experience you should be fine. Good luck to you too, congrats on getting through the 1st stage of the process!
