Hey everyone,

I was wondering what kind of traits Accenture looks for. I know a lot of bright students who played the 12 games by pymetrics and got pretty decent results, yet Accenture's recruitment system sent a refusal email within 10 minutes to all of them. Any idea what kind of traits they are particularly looking for?

Thank you for reading my question(s).

Hi

I've moved this to our career forum where hopefully you can get some useful responses from people who've been through the process.

Hey, I got offered a grad role back in February. I think the two main things that they're looking for are:
- People who are genuinely interested in new tech
- People who are well rounded

i.e. out of the following two examples, I think they'd rather go for person 2.....

Person 1:
- Economics graduate, first class
- Banking intern

Person 2:
- Geography graduate, 2:1
- Sports social secretary
- Year abroad
- Volunteer experience
- Tech work experience

Interesting, because I would go with the economics graduate all day of the week.

Hi, I received an email from Accenture the other day saying I had passed the online assessments and would get information about my assessment day in the next few days. When did you complete the online assessments because I had to wait quite awhile for a response from them?

I only completed the assessments yesterday but not sure how that went. How many days would you say you waited before receiving the email? Plus what programme did you apply for?

I completed the tests on the 11th October, so I waited for around 2 weeks. You should recieve a feedback report in the next few days but that doesnt really tell you much. I applied for the Consulting Graduate Programme in Manchester.

Congratulations on making it past the assessments. 11th of October that’s a while ago and how long did it take for you to be invited to do the online tests? Does the report say your strengths and weaknesses? I also applied for the consulting programme for Manchester haha! Sorry for all these questions

Thank you I think I waited about a week for an invite to the online test. Yeah it gives you your 3 top strengths and 1 less developed strength but it doesn't mention anything about how I did in the maths/data analytical area. No problem and good luck!

Congratulations on getting the AC. No for Accenture I believe it’s the tests then AC after that. What programme did you apply for?
