What kind of questions were you asked during the interview process?


"I was given teamwork focused questions, and asked why I wanted to work for Accenture. Questions also surrounded my experiences at college and extra-curricular activities."

Graduate, Dublin
"I was given a question on why I wanted to be a consultant, and who I admired in technology. This was alongside giving examples of how I worked in a team and how I handled any difficult individuals."
Graduate, Dublin
"My questions included giving examples: a time when I had to lead and when I had to work as part of a team to overcome an obstacle, for instance. I was also asked why I want to work for Accenture, what I thought I would be doing in the company, and had to tell my interviewer about my current studies. Then I had to say where I wanted to be in five years' time."
Graduate, Dublin
"I was asked why I wanted to work for Accenture, and if I had multiple projects ongoing at the same time, how I would prioritise this workload and expectations of me."
Graduate, Dublin
"The first interview consisted of standard competency based questions, including some on teamwork, leadership and business acumen, etc.) The next interview was more about getting to know me, so the questions were more tailored to me as an individual. I was asked to talk through my CV, to show how I would keep up with the work and adhere to strict deadlines, and why I think I would be a good fit."
Graduate, Dublin
"I had to show what motivates me and what I think makes a great leader, and where I want to be within five years."

Consulting, Graduate, Dublin
"Mainly competency-based questions where you describe situations when you demonstrated good leadership, teamwork, motivation, etc. I was also asked about times when I came up against difficulties and how I reacted.
