Take care of Time.

Next we have to write an essay on a topic.
Minimum word limit was 100.

Our topic was "Education System In India"
Time was just 5 minutes. Careful on grammar mistakes use simple English.
In another 30 min they gave us the results of the test and all shortlisted were called in for the group discussion

2) GD round

Our topic was "Reality Shows should be banned or not".
Just try to take initiative if not den speak atleast 2 to 3 points its enough.

Give chance to others also don?t interrupt them while they are speaking.
Out of 15 he selected 10 members.

3) Technical Interview.

There were total 7 technical panels.

HR: Hello Ravinder, please sit down
Me: Hello sir, thank you

The person taking the interview was very friendly and warm

HR: Can you quickly tell me about you are project. (very IMP it was asked by every panel)
Me: Sure sir, explained main aim of the project , how it is different to exixting one etc.

I told my project was little bit similar to UID (Unique Identification number which is initiated by govt of India) then he showed very interest on my project infact he was impressed with my project.

HR: What are the technologies you used in you are project.
How did you design you are project. Database Tables etc.
Me: I told that I have used Java(Jsp, Servlets and oracle as data base)

HR: How did you connect database(Oracle)
Me: I told by using JDBC drivers etc.

HR: Then suddenly he asked How do you connect DataBase using C.
Me: I told that I don?t know that but I told that mostly in C we use

Files Concept for storing any data.

Me: I told how to open file in which mode what are the actions to be performed and finally closing file etc.

HR: What is Normalization in DBMS (Normal forms)
What is Refferntial Integrity?
What is Indexing?
Me: Told

HR: Then he came to C++ asked about oops concepts, virtual function.
What is Copy Constructor?
Me: Explained

HR: Ok Ravi do you have any questions
Me: No Sir

He was quite satisfied with my answers and then he asked me to wait outside for the results. Onething which I liked about recruitment process of Accenture is they will tell the result there only after 3to 4 minutes for every candidate for each round. But those minutes will be horrible for us.

One person came and told me that I have cleared my technical and informed me to come next day for my H.R round.

4) HR Interview:

Guys remember there were some eliminations in this round also.

Me: Hello Sir
HR: Hello Mr.Ravi I think it?s a long wait for u (we came in the morning but interview took place evening)

Me: No problem sir
HR: Can you tell me something about you are self.

Me: Told,  when I was telling about my M.C.A he asked tell me about you are college life
Told.
HR: What are you are hobbies.

Why do you want to join Accenture?
Are you willing to relocate to any other location?
Are you willing to sign bond for 1 year?

Then he asked me to wait outside for the results.

Finally after a few minutes one person came and told me that welcome to Accenture. After listening to his words I was over the moon(extremely happy) They have given offer letter on that day. After one month  they gave joining date and location. My joining date is 27/08/2010 , Hyderabad. Others got Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, Banglore.

One thing, I'd suggest about the interviews is that be truthful, honest and frank. Do not bluff or try to be something which you aren't.

All the best to all you guys and hope to meet you all soon in Accenture.
