Yesterday(18/11/2003) there was a referral walkin of accenture @ dayanand sagar college,bangalore.The HR people were very particular about reference,so no use going without reference. There were 164+ people for the day and they said they wud make an offer to 25 people.The day started early 8:30am,the events were
-- a aptitude test
3 sections,1 quant,1 verbal ability,misc: very easy,solve full! No negative marking.In my class there would be 45-55 people,20 got shortlisted!,i guess my luck was good or bad,all punters in my class itself!.
my topic:should india curtail it's defence outlay(any no!!'s)
group size 10
the topics were rather boring or least controversial,but make sure u speak something/any thing. some of my friends didn't speak at all and they were not short listed,so finally 6 were selected gor HR interview
-- a HR interview
it's a cursory round,they ask questions in a fast manner with short clipped answers,don't brag now!they check ur basic academic background,etc very general.
-- 1 more interview
it's the greater interview,some of the guys were asked technical questions,but very general don't go deep,they check whether u know or not (brush up ur projects).for me it was another HR interview,the questions were (not all)
in case professional/family interests clash,what wud u do?
i said profession comes first,lot of people depending on u,ur co-workers,company people,their clients.
if ur co workers aren't working as per ur expectations what wud u do?
i said i will talk to them explain my view of ther work, appreciate what they hav already done/doing, but put forth (share) my concerns about my functioning of project, hear what they hav to say, their problems,etc and resolve the issue.
I wasn't asked any technical questions!!and the interview was rather short!
after 1 hour or so they said i am through and offered me the letter.they were still recruiting, it seems they are in a hurry to recruit people,they said if want a call at accenture,apply with resume atleast 1 month earlier.i guess that's all.
and once again kudos to this wonderful group Friends wonder what wud we freshers hav done without u. plz plz plz plz follow group rules.
note: u may fail at many attempts,but never fail to attempt
Thanx, one and all and Friends
