Detailed Accenture Campus Recruitment/Interview Process (2016 & 2017)

Students applying for the placement drive should have more than 60% marks in 10th, 12th and graduation. The candidate should be a B.Tech. or MCA graduate (or in final year) and should have also cleared all back papers (if any) at the time of the application as no standing arrears are allowed. Along with this, good analytical, interpersonal and communication skills are always an added advantage.
Procedure for Accenture campus placement
Accenture's recruitment process is divided into 4 steps. Firstly, there is a written test which is conducted by representatives from Accenture. This is an elimination round and the candidate must clear the test to qualify for the subsequent rounds. There are a total of 4-5 different question paper sets and so each student gets different questions, albeit the pattern is consistent in all the sets. The time allotted for the test is 1 hour and there is no negative marking for wrong answers.
The written test includes questions from quantitative aptitude, verbal reasoning, logical reasoning and a technical section too. In the quants section, you can expect questions from mostly asked topics like number system, profit & loss, time & distance, time & work etc. The verbal section consists of questions based on grammar usage and reading comprehension all of which can be practised from the latest placement papers. In the technical section, aspirants will be questioned on Programming, Computer Networking, Operating Systems etc.
The second step is the group discussion round. Here, candidates are divided into groups of 7-8 members and a topic is given to them for discussion. A moderator is present to conduct the GD round and evaluate the students. This round usually lasts for 15-20 minutes. Keep in mind that this round is also an elimination round.
Candidates who successfully clear the previous 2 stages, will now have to undergo two rounds of face to face interview - the technical interview and the HR interview, one by one. A panel of 2-3 interviewers will be assigned to ask you questions in the technical domain based on your areas of interest. You would also be asked questions on the project done during graduation.
The fourth and last step is the HR round which is carried out to gauge your behaviour and interpersonal skills. It might also be a stress interview where you would be given different situations and you have to react accordingly. Sane analysis of the problem, patience while dealing with it and coming up with an optimal real-life solution is expected out of you.
After this, the results are announced on the same day or the next (via email). The average package offered to engineering graduates is 3.65 LPA (2016 data).
