here's a model answer from an accenture source:
I imagine that the daily tasks and activities of an analyst are fairly varied and would depend on the type of project and the experien ce of the analyst. Indeed part of the reasoning behind my application to Accenture, is that I expect diverse work and want to be kept stimulated by being continually presented with fresh challenges and different problems to solve. My understanding is that analysts ca n be involved at any stage of a project, from the preparatory phase to the implementation. Based on Accenture website and spoken testi monials, this may entail such diverse activities as proposal work for target clients, programming, writing training documents for any n ew processes and testing systems before they go live. Activities that I am sure form an important part in every day of an analyst are constant on the job training and learning. I would expect to develop a wide range of skills, some project-specific and some with a mor e general context, and I anticipate my knowledge and ability growing hugely over a project’s duration. I would also expect that my int erpersonal and teamwork skills to be further developed through regular client contact and working in teams with a wide range of people.
