Hi friends its me vikas koli mandal from padmanava college of engineering.I would like to share my experience with u about the Accenture selection procedure. Its very easy just be strong with the basics. One more thing that is required to crack Accenture is that believes in yourself and be confident. At every stage after written only your confidence is checked. If you are well prepared no one can stop you. And one more thing to remember there is no shortcut to success, you have to be better then Others so start your preparation today and feel the passion to achieve the tag of ACCENTURE. Always reach the venue 3 to 4 hours before the actual time because majority of students are selected from first two batches. Accenture is a big company so is its requirement and always hires freshers in bulk 200-500. So just prepare well, go through the placement papers (available at freshersworld.com), try the practice/sample papers, be confident and your name will be in the list. The entire selection is divided into 4 phases: 1) Written test. 2) Group Discussion 3) Technicla interview 4) HR interview
Written test: (23rd July 2010, location KIIT, Bhubaneswar, 2:00pm) This is completely an elimination round. Most of the student are eliminated in this round (In my case 3000 appeared for written and only 500 were able to get through it) [Statics are not accurate just an overview, actual data is always confidential].
55 questions were there and 60 minutes time. It consisted of three sections cut off marks is 34 (no negative marking and no sectional cutoff) and remember this is not a university exam where you have to score high, here you just have to pass. Keep in mind that your minimum target is only 34, try to achive it first and if time left do the rest.i) English(20 questions) a) Fill in the blanks with preposition and articles. Prepare from wren and martin.
HR: Tell me about yourself. (this one is the default question in each and every interview. I was prepared for this).Me: Said HR: Can you just explain something about the projects that you have done? Me: Said with full confidence (I knew he will be asking this question so I was very well prepared for this. If you have project in C, C++, Java, .net or any other language interviewer might ask you little bit of coding part. So be prepared for all possible questions related to projects). HR: What is php? and why you have choosen php for designing website(my project was in php)?
Me: I said all about php and explained my project.HR: What was your role in the project? Future prospect of the project?
Me: I said team leader. And explained the rest.HR: Tell me about the seminars Me: I explained HR: What is the difference between C++ and Java? Me: Platform independence, pointer etc with example I explained. HR: What is the difference between interface and inheritance?
