Accenture Job Application

A highly innovative leader in its sector, Accenture consistently appears on the list of Fortune's "World's Most Admired Companies” and is ranked as one of the best companies to work for in the world. As of 2019, Accenture has around 500,000 employees in 52 countries, of which approximately a third resides in India, 50,000 in the US, and 50,000 in the Philippines.

The first step in your Accenture job application is to search and find roles via the website. The user-friendly search engine allows you to filter your job search by interests, qualifications, and location. Once you've found a relevant role at Accenture, assess your skills and customize your CV for the position.

You may submit your application online or at a recruitment event (the events calendar is also found on the website). Answer application questions strategically, since this is the first critical screening stage in the Accenture hiring process. It is worth noting that Accenture slightly favours female applicants, as its goal is to ensure that by 2025 the ratio of employees by gender will be 50:50 (currently it is 70:30).

The Accenture Hiring Process

1. After the application, you will have to fill out a profile and take a brief psychometric test. If you do well, this is followed by an online assessment which comprises 12 games, provided by Pymetrics, that measure different cognitive skills and personality traits. Each game takes several minutes to complete and, there is no time limit.

2. Initial interview: Upon reviewing your application and recognizing your potential as an Accenture candidate, an Accenture recruiter may contact you for a comprehensive interview. In the UK, this interview might be held as a digital video interview by HireVue, whereas in Australia, the conversation takes place over the phone.

3. If you make round two, you will be invited to an assessment centre for an interview with an executive/HR manager, a micro-case study and a Virtual Reality assessment. The VR assessment, a new feature in the screening process, is based on CAPP platform. It’s intended to immerse the candidate into various scenarios, whereby her or his skills in problem-solving, data interpretation, and resilience are evaluated. The following are three examples of such VR exercises:

  • 1st exercise - The Egyptian crypt:
    In this particular environment, the candidate is faced with a set of hieroglyphs that she or he is required to reorder into the correct sequence as efficiently as possible. The performance level is indicated by changing lights on an Anubis (ancient Egyptian god) figure: if a hieroglyph is correct but misplaced - yellow, if it’s correct and in the right place – green.
  • 2nd exercise:
    There are ten blocks of stone, each bearing a problem that needs to be solved – moving rocks into the right size order, naming capital cities of selected countries or building a castle with virtual cards, to name a few. There are too many tasks for the allotted time (7 minutes) and two of the tests are actually impossible to complete. What the test is really looking at is project management aptitude and prioritising abilities - how the candidate decides which of the tasks are worth doing, or how quickly she or he realises that particular tasks cannot be solved.
  • 3rd exercise – The office:
    Here the candidate must analyse the progress of a live project on virtual iPads, before ‘taking part’ in a conference call phone during which she or he gives a summary of the status of the project.

Accenture Job Interview

Your first in-house Accenture interview is typically held by a senior staff member. It is a strength-base interview intended to assess the candidate’s interests and motivation rather than their competency. Strength questions don’t have correct or incorrect responses, but you will be expected to give examples and illustrate your answers.
Some of the archetypal questions of Accenture interview include:

  • What are some of your strengths and weaknesses?
  • What are some of your long-term and short-term career goals?
  • Why are you the ideal candidate for the role? What makes you different?
  • What is your best achievement so far?
  • Describe the hardest decision you have faced in the past 12 months.
