Hi, I have been offered a job in the products operating group at Accenture and was wondering if the work is really technical as I am more interested in the business side of consulting or buisness development/marketing? Is there the opportunity to work in these areas if you are aligned to an operating group? I am trying to build up a picture of the type of work I would be doing. Thanks folks.

Hi Richard, the work is not nessecarily technical, just application of technical idea/work for business processes. You will have to Java and other languages. Accenture has a technical arm, so they are the coders - you will just be supplementing/helping them. Just out of curiousocity, when did you go for your second interview and when did you hear that you got the job?

Hi Benny, I went for the 2nd interview a couple of weeks ago and heard within 2 days - but this varies so if you are waiting a wouldn't worry if you haven't heard. So is the Java programming just to aid understanding? Do you know what type of work I would be doing? Thanks

Richard, yeah I went last Wednesday and am getting *extremely* nervous - lots of people said that if you have the job they usually call within 2 working days (however some people I have spoken to said that they waited 2 weeks, had to call them and then were offered a place!). I know its silly!!! ACN do a lot of their systems in Java, purely because an enterprise language and is compatible(!!!!) with many other systems/packages. So in order to advise clients on what technology they should use, you as an analyst need to know what can actually be done by these technologies - you need to know the strengths/weaknesses of them. From what I know from my contacts, it can be technical but most likely you'll be doing the business side. Hope this helps. Benny

Hi guys, I am in the same position as Benny. Is there any one else out there who has had to wait more then two days to get an offer? If so, how long? Is anyone waiting to hear from ACN? DO you have any concerns? Cheers, Jonny

Waiting wise, I got a job there last year and it took about 2weeks, and i was one of the first to find out. Cant help you on that front. However on the "what will I be doing front".. Cant really help you there, other than to say, before they hire you they probably dont have an idea what they will get you to do. When your hired and AFTER inital training, you will be available for projects to try and get you on board, I started with 11 people, and none of us are doing anything alike. You may not end up directly programming, but dont kid yourself, you are joining an IT company. That said, IT is also a business, so you'll get some of that too.

Hope it helps
