Final Round Accenture Interview (Dublin) Tips

Anonymous A

I have a final round interview Thursday of next week for a graduate analyst position at Accenture in Dublin, Ireland. It will consist of a 45 minute interview with a senior manager.

Any tips on content or prep? I'm not sure if these interviews are standardised across countries/regions.

No case study involved, wondering how formal the interview will be in terms of competency questions etc.

I'd also like to mention my preference for Accenture strategy, those wishing to get there in Ireland are made apply through the general consulting stream as the country's practices are quite consolidated due to a smaller market.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

In general, the interviews at Accenture are not that structured:

  • Pls double check - I believe you might still have a case
  • No clear guidelines for cases, so the case depends on the interviewer
  • 60% chance that it will be marketsizing
  • 40% chance - profitability and general frameworks
  • Interviewers are less demanding than at Big3. unless you meet an ex-big3 consultant as an interviewer
  • For fit I would prepare: Story about yourself; Why consulting; Why Accenture; Leadership; Team work; Your questions to the interviewer
