Consultant Interview

Consultant

Interviewed at Accenture

Interview Details – Phone interview (60 mins) with HR. Besides the basic questions regarding motivation and work experience the interview was very dynamic and in my opinion the focus was on "why do you want to work for Accenture?" "Was is the unique value that you can bring to the company". At the end of the question they ask me a brain teaser which you can not really prepare and you have to show how to solve a problem. The focus is here not on the "right" answer but rather how you approach that problem.

Interview Question – The brain teaser was unexpected and pretty difficult. But as I said try not to focus what might be the right answer, rather focus on what kind of information you would need, where to find it, how to make assumptions and describe as much as possible how you approach that problem (which steps, etc.)   Answer Question

Cleared technical , Within a week got a behavioral interview - 1on 1 telephone with a behavioral consultant - again could feel the heat the guy had a no nonsense (almost curt) approach - thought I blew it but apparently not - cleared this as well

Final - confirming interview as with a senior exec / partner over the webcam - this was casual and conversational - he told me right away that i passed.
