    Consulting Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds, 1st round with HR and final round with Senior Manager. Mainly behavioral. Key focus on leadership and team experiences. Expect them to quiz on the details of these experiences rather than just ask for the key takeaways. So remember to prepare some solid stories to share with the interviewer.
    Your interviewers are helpful resources even past the interview stage.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews.

    First one is just going through your resume and ask some super easy questions. About 40 mins in length.

    Second one is a bit harder, where most questions are in-depth behavioral questions. The interview is conducted by a HR staff.

    Now preparing for the Third round on-site interview.

    Interview Details

    First round telephone interview. This consisted mostly of competency based questions, such as leadership experience, and how i would deal with different situations. This also involved a very basic case study. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and was very pleasant, the interviewer clearly knew what he was doing.
