ACCENTURE PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 21 JAN 2010 - PATIALA
I m from Thapar University and Electronics and Instrumentation student.
1 Written test
3. technical interview
4. HR interview
articles, reading comprehensions n analytical ability (eg AAAAAHHHHHEIIII, AAAAAHHHHHEIIII, comparing the sequences. if / replaced by+, * replaced by -, + replaced by /, - replaced by *, then evaluate the following mathematical expression. it was very very easy, just take care of time limit. no negative making.
After this we were asked to write an essay, time given was 5 mins, yes just 5 mins!
topic was India in 2020. don't worry nobody checked it. I think they just wanted to see if u could write grammatically correct English.
From all the students that appeared, 157 were short listed.
GD: students were called in a group of 15. topics were easy, its very important that you keep speaking in the GD but at the same time don't be AGGRESSIVE!!!! they throw you out! n if the moderator cant hear you, it means u are out.
Be calm n at the same time make sure u are heard.
on an average, from each group, 7 were selected.
after GD, from 157 students, 82 were short listed.
call me lucky, I wasn't asked much technical in my interview. after coming out of the interview, i thought it was my HR. he was very friendly. he asked me about my background, why did i want to come into IT sector leaving my own branch instrumentation (i told i had inclination for programming, b ready with some example to prove it, some project etc.)
i also knew C++, he asked me differences btw C and C++.
this was the only technical quest. asked to me.
in the end, he asked if i had any quests., i said no but i said that i want to present my views on ACCENTURE, he was impressed. search d site n lay out some facts as to why u like the company, use some lines that were said in ppt.
Other technical questions:
programs for fibbonacci series, prime number, palindrome, rev d string, some output n error detection programs
technical was very basic, C++ concepts like inheritance, encapsulation n all.....
Java, DBMS, Operating Systems was asked from CSE ppl, so plz beware computer science ppl are grilled badly!!
From 82, 62 students were short listed for HR interview.
once u are thru wid ur technical, HR is piece of cake!!
jst b confident, dnt bluff, dnt lie, be urself!!!
questions: describe urself, are u ok with night shifts?
problem in relocation?
if i give you joining letter ryt now, would u accept it?
did u sit for IT companies that came earlier?
why weren't u selected?
droppers be prepared with a reason for the gap in studies.
Out of 62, finally, they took 50 students, and i was one of them. selected only 2 students from instrumentation, 15 from cse. i guess 6 or 7 from chemical, 2 or 3 from biotech...
