Accenture recruitment process is different from others. We were grouped in. I, along 4 people, entered into panel. They make groups irrespective of branches you belong to. In my group there were 2 ECE, 2 CSC and 1 CIVIL people. They asked questions individually. They asked questions about:
- Our project and internship and few questions related to them.
- Challenges we faced in doing them.
- How did we use our practical knowledge for our personal purpose?
- What are our long term and short term goals?
- Do we want to be a team member or team leader?
- Have we ever led a team and what problems did we face and how did we face them
- Few core subject related questions.
They generally ask these questions to know what person you are, how did you apply your theoretical knowledge practically, to know whether you are flexible or not and to test your communication skills and for Accenture communication skills are very important.
I was done with my interview by afternoon itself and I felt like it was very quick. I was confident that I will be selected. Next day I came to know that I was selected and I felt very happy.
My final suggestions would be, “be confident” and maintain smile at all times.
