Online application

This will take between 30 minutes to an hour. It requires you to fill out your educational career, attained and projected grades, contact details and answers to questions on technology, Accenture and reasons why you want to apply.​

Expect a 1-2 week wait before progressing to the next stage.

Immersive online assessment

Like a job simulation that contains small case studies. Candidates are required to answer 35 questions under two main themes; Numerical Reasoning and Situational Reasoning.

Example task

A typical question would be: "A Co-worker has committed fraud, how do you respond?" Do you report it to your line manager or ignore the situation? I think you know what the answer is for this one!

How to respond for success

It is important that you think like an employee, not like a student. For Accenture, you need to have a super ethical mind as this is the core of their corporate culture. Accenture uses this stage to gain measurable, objective data that can provide a better all-around view of a candidate's suitability.​

Expect a 1-week wait before progressing to the next stage.

Online interview

You will watch a short introductory video explaining the details of how the interview is conducted before being asked questions from a pre-corded clip. These questions tend to focus on Accenture's core values, the tech industry's current news and why you should be accepted. All questions require a video answer which is timed for 60 seconds.

Example task

A typical question would be: "Explain a time where you demonstrated leadership skills".

How to respond for success

Focus on how you present yourself. Accenture uses emotional intelligence systems to track your tone, eye contact and mannerisms and reduce your performance score if you fail to make eye contact with the camera, hesitate a lot or appear nervous under pressure. Accenture uses these videos to assess your character and understanding of their business both internally and the external interests like industry trends.​

Expect a 1-week wait before progressing to the next stage.

Assessment centre

You will be paired with another candidate and given a short audio recording of some detailed information on the tech industry. You are tasked to remember as much as you can by taking notes quickly and coordinating with your partner. You will then be given 5 minutes to talk with your partner on a possible solutions and then have 3 minutes to pitch your solutions as a team.

Example task

You could be presented with a recording of a description of new API technology and how it can be applied to a system to produce a particular outcome.

How to respond for success

Remember that you are with a rival candidate, but you need to work together to deliver a result. Try and prioritise communication and organisation skills, keep a calm head and do not rush. Time is very sensitive in this exercise, if you panic, it will be very noticeable and your partner will appear stronger. Accenture assessors will be observing the entire process to look for how you handle tasks under pressure and your reaction as to how you process and remember new information.​

Final interview

You will receive a case study 3 days before your final interview. You need to use this time to prepare yourself with the details, relevant material to the topic and be able to link to current events. The first half of your interviewer will ask questions related to the case study. The second half will be a typical interview style, asking you questions about you.

Example task

An example of a case study would be an article on how Augmented Reality (AR) technology can be used in the workplace. A typical interview question for the second half would be "What is your biggest weakness in the professional setting?"

How to respond for success

Use the 3 days as much as you can. Focus on memorising information and include specifics, being vague will not cut it. When answering the first half of questions, create links to demonstrate that you have a greater understanding of the subject area. Accenture interviews are looking for how you interact with them as a potential colleague, articulation and understanding of the tech and business industry.​

Expect a 3-4 week wait before progressing to the next stage.
