    Interview process

    The interview consisted of 3 parts:
    1) Knowledge about Accenture, recent client stories and its competitors.
    2) Competency-based questions. (the usual things)
    3) Mini case study.
    Overall, it lasted for 50min and it was pretty simple.

    The mini case study was basically about a water supplier that had customer complaints about leaking pipes. The problem was that it was hard for the company to identify which fieldworker is closest to the problematic pipe. After that the company would call the worker to assign the task of fixing the pipe. Then, the workers had to call back to inform about the work that was undertaken at the site. All this information was written down on paper and sometimes documents would go missing.

    Questions:
    -Identify the 3 main problems of this company.
    -Suggest solutions to the problems.
    -How could the company fix the problem quickly (ie. quicker that the suggestions you already made)
    -What will the result be after the problem is fixed.

    Most difficult question

    What was your greatest achievement?

    This question is a bit tricky because on one hand you want to answer it on the other you don't want them to think that you're showing off.

    Interview tips

    Find out as much as possible about the company, what they offer, their structure, client stories etc.
    It is especially important to know how Accenture can help clients with technology!

    Also, when replying to competency-based questions try to use various examples from different parts of your life rather than just focusing on the academic side. Examples are internships, volunteer work, sports, societies, trips etc. They like to hear variety otherwise they feel that you don't have enough experience.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    I was invited to the assessment centre but it will be tomorrow!

    The good thing is that you are given the contact details of an analyst that is assigned as your "Recruitment Buddy" and you can ask for tips and advice.
