ACCENTURE PAPER ON 14th APRIL AT MUMBAI


General details abt the company can be found at www.accenture.com
Let me give the specific info, the one tht'll appeal to u
1) Package being offered right now is 2.7 pa ( which is being reviewed and will most probably end up between 2.8 pa :-: 3.0 pa )
2) The company offers 2 MIT Certifications.
3) The company has tie-ups with IIM-B , XLRI & NMIMS for MBA.
But the certifications & MBA come at a cost i.e. additional bond. By the way the bond is of 1 year.

Aptitude:
Aptitude is very simple.
Go through previous papers.
Most of the ppl cleared the apti.

GD:
GD is the round where most of the ppl get rejected.
The person moderating our GD told us tht he'd be judging us on 3 points....
Knowledge, Communication Skills & Interaction with the Group.
By the way starting the GD gives u a clear lead.
I started the GD and rarely spoke after tht, but my start was solid.
So cleared the GD.

HR Interview:
Order of HR interview & Technical Interview keeps on changing.

Listen to the PPT carefully(which will be given after the Apti results are out) and u'll be able to handle the HR interview.
I was asked the following questions:
1) Favorite subject -> C
2) Wht are pointers?
3) Difference between C & C++
Sounds like a tech. interview Here are the remaining questions....
4) Why Accenture? -> answered
Some cross questioning on tht. -> got stuck

Thts it ...my HR interview was barely for 3-4 minutes.
Some ppl's HR interview was upto 30 minutes.

Technical Interview:
I had mentioned in my CV tht I had organised & participated in Rink-Football & Box-Cricket in my college.
Here are the questions:
1) Wht is Rink-Football? -> explained
2) Wht is Box-Cricket? ->explained
Sounds like a HR interview

After tht the real Technical Interview started...
3) So ur favorite subject is C? ->yes
4) Wht are pointers? -> explained
5) WHY would u use them? wrote 2 programs, one without pointers & the other with pointers.
6) WHERE would u use pointers? -> explained
7) Name the sorting techniques u know? -> named
8) Explain Merge Sort -> explained with the help of example.
9) Where would u use Merge Sort? -> answered
10) If u r given an array of 10 nos , which sorting technique would u use? -> Quick Sort
11) If u r given only 2 nos then..? -> none, simply use if condition

Thts it done...barely 5 minutes..
And I was finally selected at Accenture.......after failing to get thru L&T, Infosys & Tech Mahindra.
My faith in the Almighty saw me thru...

Wishing u'll luck........
Hoping to see u'll at Accenture.
