The recruiting process
Your first step is probably to review this website to get a feel for who we are, the type of work we do, our working environment, our people and who we employ. Alternatively, contact your campus careers services office to find out about positions that are available or contact the recruiting division in your local Accenture office.
Your campus careers service will also have information about whether we will be visiting your university. If so you can come and meet us in person and discuss the appropriate way to submit your resume or CV. This will likely be by filling in an application form, giving your resume or CV to one of our recruiters or applying online via our careers website. Your campus careers services office will have a listing of recruiting events on your campus that Accenture will be attending.
The interview process
To ensure that we hire the most appropriate individuals for Accenture opportunities, we conduct a rigorous interview process. A recruiter may contact you to discuss your resume or CV. This may result in a first interview with a recruiter, who will want to discuss your experiences and interests at a high level. You will also have the opportunity to get additional information about the position and what it is like to work at Accenture. If you are selected to participate in the next stage of the process, you may have interviews with Accenture executives and require a more in-depth discussion of your skills and experiences.
Your recruiter will contact you to let you know your status in the recruiting process.

Prior to your interview, think about some of your group projects, accomplishments, activities from which you can share a story.
