ACCENTURE PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 02 APR 2007 - BANGALORE
My name is Punitha and I got placed in Accenture on the 2nd of April 2007. Well if you are one among the people who is preparing to face an interview for Accenture then all you have to remember is be confident and have a good communication skill.
The placement process in our college kickstarted with the aptitude. The Aptitude papers of Accenture is given by the merit track people. You can visit their website as well (www.merittrack.com). To be very frank the aptitude was easy. It consisted of 55 questions. A few verbal questions like fill in the blank with correct prepositions, to give the synonymns of the underlined words and things like that. Then attention to detail and logical reasoning which were also quite simple. There was no negative marking and no sectional cut off either. So make sure that you attend as many questions as possible. But the cut off will be a bit high, which they will not reveal, and the paper could also be a bit lengthy for 40 min. Just be smart enough to answer the questions which will not consume more time in the beginning and see to it that you have got majority of the answers right. If you are guessing a few answers here is a tip. Let the choice for all the questions for which you are guessing the answers be the same. For eg. c or d for all the answers going to be guessed.
Then there will be the ppt (the pre placement talk). You ought to have a good knowledge about the company. All company people will love that and Accenturites are in no way an exception.
The filtered students will be called for the HR round. This round should not be a difficult one for those who can answer confidently with good presence of mind and communication skill. The common questions are "introduce yourself", "what do you do in your leisure time", "why did you choose engineering", "who is your role model" etc.. Dont worry just be confident as i have been mentioning and be smart, not over smart though. You can shake hands after entering the room by introducing yourself and thank the person for sharing his time before leaving.
Finally there will be the technical round which will more or less be like a second HR round. If you are a CS student then you must brush up a few details about your project and if you are an EC student then get the concepts of microprocessor right. You ought to know the names of the subjects you are studying as this could be a definite question and please for god sake dont say you dont know the subjects. The other possible questions are "why should we hire you", "what are your areas of improvement" etc. Make it a point to have a smile on your face throughout. That will matter. And in the end if the person asks you if you have any questions for him please feel free to do so. you may ask questions like "how has been your experience in the company", "how have you shaped your career" etc.
Just dont forget that the person who is interviewing you is also a human being. There is no need to be scared of him. An interview is just going to be a mere exchange of words.
