Accenture - chances of success after one rejection

 
#1 Accenture - chances of success after one rejection

I recently attended (and did not get through) the graduate assessment day for Accenture in the UK? I was just wondering how long I have to wait to apply again? Also, has anyone out there been accepted by them having been rejected once already? Do any insiders know whether they just reject you on the spot having been unsuccessful once already? Thanks (in advance) for your help.

Peter,

I believe you can reapply after 6 months. I would keep trying still. Maybe apply for positions at different office locations through their web site. I am a former employee and it can be tricky trying to get into any of the firms. Remember, be persistent and keep trying.

Peter,

While practices may vary by office, there is nothing to stop you reapplying.

When I was at Accenture we'd often receive repeat applications -- some were worth reviewing again (usually becuase of a significant change in circumstances), some were not. Whether you get a subsequent interview will largely depend on 1) why you were rejected the first time, and 2) what has changed this time around. I wouldn't go for more than two attempts though (one applicant applied with us 4 times, before being sent a politely worded "piss-off" letter).

Hope this helps.

Paul

I was a former mid-level Manager with Accenture and involved quite heavily in the recruiting process. I believe it is 12 months before you can apply again. Based on my experience with them it totally depends on why they rejected you. If the reason(s) were skill based, willingness to travel, work/life balance then perhaps addtional experience or adjustments in that area will help your case when you reapply. However, if you were rejected based on the critical behavior asssessment of the interview process then I do think it will be more difficult to get into Accenture later....at least in that office. The critical behavior assessment is key because it tells them about your ability to fit into the culture and how you respond/react in certain situations. They have spent major dollars perfecting this system and it has proven to be quite an indicator of the likely success of the applicant with the company.Your best bet is to continue the relationship with the Recruiter. Ask them if they can give you feedback back on why you didn't 'make the cut'. Good Luck....They're a great company
