Accenture UK - Experienced Hire 2nd Round Interview

 
#1 Accenture UK - Experienced Hire 2nd Round Interview
11/10/2004 20:08

I'm going through Accenture's recruitment process as an experienced hire. I had a first round telephone skills interview last week with a senior manager and have just been invited back for the 2nd round. I understand this will involve a 1 hr interview with an HR representative and a 1.5 hour interview with a Partner involving a case study.

Can anyone give me any advice on the Partner interview and case study (what to expect, how to best prepare)? I am being considered for a role with the Human Performance group within the Product operating group (focusing on Retail).

Hi, was through such process two months ago (but unfortunately failed). My advice would be concentrate on the question and back your answers with firm proof. When you do your case study remember that there are not correct answers, so you have to stand after your opinion, unless you see from reaction that you told absolute non-sense. And finally from my experience: Personally, I do not think it is possible to prepare for the outstanding case-study interview in a very short time unless you are proficient in that area. So if you can choose the date of the interview, try to make it as later as you can.

I recently joined ACN through the experienced hire route. I wouldn't get too worried about the case study. It's about half a side of A4 long and is easy to handle. What they are looking for is your ability to understand the case and present your analysis and recommendations. I'd urge you to make sure you outline what assumptions you've made, i.e. 'The bank's average client age is increasing, therefore I'd expect their client base to start reducing in the long term. To address this, I'd....'

Good Luck!

Thanks you very much for your first-hand experience and advice on the case study. Does the Partner stay in the room while you read it and get your thoughts together?

Hi, I do not think it should matter. I personally was left alone for about 5 minutes, but it did not help me. If partner stays, probably he/she wants to see your reaction. You have to pretend you are at the client and you have to look confident, regardless what you feel about reading the case study.
