Can anyone give me tips on how to tackle a graduate first round interview with Accenture?

Hi Murray. Your first interview will either be with a manager or a member of Accenture HR and will cover mostly your application form. They will normally introduce themselves - where they went to university, what role they do in Accenture and their recent projects. Then they will probably ask you to do the same. This will lead on to such questions as "Can you tell me of a time when the goalposts have been moved on a project you have been doing", "When have you looked at a problem from a differet angle in order to find a solution?" and "When have you taken a calculated risk?". Standard interviewing questions really - nothing too major. They'll also touch upon why you want to work for Accenture, do you like travelling and they'll pick out things from your interests and work experience. It's very important that you ask questions at the end, preferably tailored to what the interviewer has previously said as opposed to pre-written questions - it show an interest in what is being said. Tips-wise, just be calm and confident without being arrogant. The fact that you have your first round means that, on paper, you deserve to be there - so don't doubt your abilities. Also, they will probably ask you about the operating group and service line structure of the company. Don't be fazed - all this information is readily available on the bulletin board. The best of luck to you and if you get through - stick another message up here and I'll give you some advice on the second round!

Hi Mat. There is an interesting account of the Accenture second interview stage, including tips from a previous candidate at:

http://doctorjob.com/reviews/browse.asp?SectorID=21

Other than that I would only suggest that you be natural, read the literature you receive before the interview and if you have any specific questions, call and ask your buddy.

I know a lot of people want advice about the second round stage but it is mostly to test YOU as a person. If you don't have the right personality for the job - that will come out and if you try to adapt to what you perceive to be the "model" candidate, you will also flounder. So the only alternative is to enjoy it. You won't be competing against anyone else, only against the company's criteria.

Very best of luck to you.

Thankyou for your reply. Are you a full time pirate, or just on your days off?

No problem. Good luck in the interview. Hope to be working with you one day. Yes I am a full time Pirate, but it's a young man's game these days so I don't know for how much longer... Big Jim (currently haboured in Southampton contemplating career choice...)

didnt get the place - i felt royally out of place. I go to Leeds university - I had 2 oxford,2 cambridge, 1 LSE, 1 edinburgh and 1 Imperial students in my group. some had already graduated with 1st's etc....All had fancy work experience got through their contacts, both in uk and abroad! So I wasnt expectant - 17 places, with over 1000 applicants. I guess I shall take the fact that I got down to the last 70 as a good thing and learn from my experience! It was my first interview anyway - to say I was wet behind the ears is an understatement! Hopefully my Graduate application will be more successful! Thanks for everyones help - if anyone has any advice or any information for me - my email addy is mp@arsenalfc.net

cheers
