ACCENTURE PAPER ON 4TH SEPTEMBER AT CHANDIGARH
Hi everyone, I am Pankaj Sharma,ece(3rd year) from Desh Bhagat Engineering College, Mandi Gobindgarh. Recently a placement drive was held by Accenture in Chitkara Institute of Technology, Chandigarh and by someones grace, I was selected.
The selection process was divided into four divisions: written round, the group discussion, HR interview and Technical Interview in the order mentioned above.
THE WRITTEN ROUND: for the written round preparation from r.s aggarwals verbal and non-verbal reasoning and quantitative aptitude by the same author are enough. The questions asked were on time and distance, work , arithmetic based on interchange of mathematical symbols
THE GROUP DISCUSSION: the students were divided into groups of fifteen . the topic for our group was transition from college life to corporate life. Actually, the gd in our group quickly turned into a fish market and those who managed to stay cool were selected. I acted like a co-ordinator as best as I could under the circumstances and it paid off. The mantra is to maintain your cool , listen attentively to other peoples view point , speak with confidence and never look in the direction of the co-ordinator.
THE HR ROUND:
The hr personnel was a cool guy and the interview moved as follows:
Q. how did your percentage drop from 90.4 in class 10 to 74 in class 12
A. told the reason
Q. ok, pankaj , what is your passion. What do you like to do in your free time?
Q. what is success?
Q. what is failure?
Q. why should we select you?
Q. ok pankaj thank you
A. thank you sir
I believe that the hr personnel mainly checks your command over the English language and your general trend of thought
THE TECHNICAL ROUND:
As I am from ece, I believe I had an advantage as only one question from oracle, and that also because I had written in my c.v. that I knew oracle , was asked . the rest were general questions like what is your greatest achievement, what kind of a project do you want to design in the future , etc.
The key is to believe in yourself and not worry.
Thanks for reading !!!
Meet you at Accenture!!!
