Careers at Accenture
There are many Fortune 500 companies and top MNCs AIJ writes about. Not every company is keen on recruiting freshers and the inexperienced. But Accenture has a widespread tradition of employing freshers. One needs to keep in mind the kind of company Accenture is, before they decide to go for it. Accenture is a professional services company. It is reported that about one- third of the fortune 500 companies are their clients.
So most of their projects are not development projects. They have many database and maintenance related projects. Which project you get depends on availability and your merit. If you want to work at a comfortable pace, there are several maintenance and consulting projects too.
Application Procedure at Accenture:
Accenture has several offices throughout India. Their process of hiring for freshers and experienced candidates are different. If your college has invited Accenture for campus placement then you need not register or apply at their online portal.
Otherwise, it is mandatory for all candidates to register at their portal. This is the registration link of Accenture: https://accntu.re/2lZoAps
You will get an email notification for off campus recruiting events and walkins at Accenture if you register.
1.To register, one needs to create an account with their email ID. Accenture sends an email with a link that must be clicked on to activate the account. Note down the sign-in details. You will use these details to log into their portal.
2. Search through their portal for job vacancies and apply for it. Before you apply, make sure you have a resume readily available to be uploaded. There are columns that ask for your Aadhar card number, PAN card number and Passport number. Filling at least one is mandatory but not all.
Most freshers prepare resumes with many mistakes. Hiring experts browse through hundreds of resumes every day for one job post. One mistake could mean you’ll be out.

Accenture is one of the rare companies where you can go to their office directly and find out if there are any openings. You might even get a chance to speak with a hiring manager.
If Accenture is visiting your campus, there will be three rounds of selection. The first round is usually a group discussion with a group size ranging from 5 to 7. The selected candidates may conduct a JAM round for the prospective candidates too.
This will be an elimination round. The next round will be a personal interview where a panel of interviewers will ask both technical and HR based questions. If you fare well through all these rounds, you will be extended a job offer.
Based on your communication and technical skills, the panel will select you for a suitable position at Accenture. If you are being screened for a technical role, you might have to give one more test to check your skills in programming and coding.
If you are a fresher who is individually applying for Accenture, you can have good chances of getting selected by getting a good score in e- litmus and AMCAT. If you have a good score in either of these exams, chances are you will get a call from Accenture directly. Then you can participate from step no: 2 in the list.
