Student Interview

I was very excited when our college informed that Accenture would be coming for the On-Campus drive at our college. The drive was scheduled after two weeks. So, I asked my seniors about the interview process and they told me that for the written test I must refer to Prepinsta and some other competitive books. They also told me that Accenture focusses on women empowerment and hire large number of women employees every year. So with a little focus and preparation my chances of getting selected are great. The eligibility criteria for Accenture was 60% throughout with no current backlogs.

The college provided us with the link to apply for the drive. We had to register on the link and to get the admit card for our MeritTrac paper. On the day of the drive, we were informed that the interview process would be of two rounds. First will be the assessment test, and the students clearing the test will move forward for the personal interview round.

MeritTrac Written Test

The test was divided into three sections, Verbal Ability, Reason Ability, and Attention to Detail.

  • Verbal Ability-This section had 20 questions. There were three Reading comprehensions, para jumbles, sentence correction questions. This section was of 20 minutes. Thanks to no negative marking, I attempted all the questions.
  • Reasoning Ability-This section was of 25 minutes and had 20 questions. Maximum questions were related to Data Sufficiency and Linear Arrangement.
  • Attention to Detail – This was the trickiest section and the most time-consuming as well. There were 15 questions and time allotted was 15 minutes. I was not able to attempt all the questions but still managed to clear.

It was a 60 minutes paper. We got the sores on our registered email ID. Luckily, I managed to clear the paper and was selected for the next round which happened the next day at the college campus.

The essential documents to be carried for the interview

  • One copy of the updated resume
  • All original mark sheets till 7th semester
  • 2 passport size photos

Interview Round

As I entered the cabin, the HR was seated there. He asked me for my resume. Then the interview began,

  • Tell me something about yourself?
  • What was your final year project and what was your role in it?
  • Do you prefer to work on the front-end or the back-end in a project/
  • What profile are you looking for?
  • Is relocation ok with you?

The interview was not that scary as I had imagined. It went good as I was pretty confident. After the interview of all the students got over, we were told that the results would be mailed to us. So, after ten days I got the mail that I was selected as the Front-end designer at Accenture Pune and had to report on 22nd May with all the original documents.
