Accenture HR and Partner/Case Study interview

 
#1 Accenture HR and Partner/Case Study interview
22/03/2011 18:41

Newbee

Hi folks I have been following this forum for some time now.

I'd really appreciate some help, guidance and direction. I have applied at Accenture as an experienced hire from the public sector (don’t bite) having had 4/5 years experience. I am in the running for a C1 consultant position. I’ve passed the 1st hurdle of the telephone interview.

I am hoping you can help by describing in some detail the interview process as well the typical hard ball questions.

And what the Case Study could look like.

Typical salary I could negotiate with Accenture?

nevermind to neebee (#2)

just had mine a few days ago.

2nd round was Snr Exec and HR int.

first thing snr exec tells me is that they have increased headcount from around 80k to over 200k in the last 10 years, with a selection of only 2-3% of those interviewed they've probably got thru 100s of k's of applicants. not sure if he was boasting of there stringent selection criteria. or some other point he was getting across. but i've worked with some of these guys, take away their methodologies/tools that they've developed/used over the past decades n the only thing they have that differentiates them is a desire to procedd, whether their worth it or not.....

anyway....

HR have some key questions. respond using the STAR/SOARA approach with an example. Some q's:

1. most challenging project. 3 larget challenges.

2. most rewarding proj.

3. how u'd work with someone u don't rate.

4. why move, what u r alooking for, where u see urself in x years n the challenges u'll fac when u join.

For the case study, lots of info to take in. Concentrate not so much on the technical details, but also on the e2e ecosystem.....processes, HR/Org, supply, consumers, products......

good luck

orthographer to nevermind (#3)

.. and watch out for .spelling. Apparently one thing they cannot abide is a failure to understand the difference between 'there, their and they're'; a skill that is usually mastered in primary school.

Hi Guys, I also have a HR / Case Study coming up for Accenture. Could I ask if anyone else has any advice on what may be asked or how to succeed in the case study? Newbee - how did your interview go?

Thanks

OnlyMe to newcomer (#5)

Within the Consulting workforce, ACN uses one of the 12 or so case studies. The usual set of questions on Business Diagnosis, Strategy, Business Process, Transformation and Technology.

From your solution/conclusions, they will be looking at Analytical Thought Processes, Creativity, Business Insight and Decisiveness and will be marking you in those category.

Amie to Newbee (#1)

Guys, I am waiting for my case study later on this week, they informed that successful candidate should know a lot of technical side, I am practising through some lessons online, however, I feel that I strongly need some practical sample to know what to expect. I have searched on internet, but no luck. Pls help!

You can always use an online platform like rocketblocks.me to get a better sense of what the interviews will be like and how to prepare. they do a great job on the site of including interviews with consultants about the process and then having interactive drills that help you prepare for actual case interviews

GrayArea to exBCGconsultant (#12)

Thanks.

I was asking because I understand Accenture may be going through an internal reorganisation so recruitment and the interview process are taking longer than usual.

My source is the rumour mill so maybe totally unfounded.
