HINTS AND TIPS

We appreciate that applying for graduate jobs takes a long time and can be difficult. So we’ve pulled together some application hints and tips to help you along the way.

TIP #1

During interviews, be authentic and passionate. Show why you want to work for us and what would really interest you. And don’t forget to ask questions. You need to find out if we are the right fit for you, just as much as we need to find out if you’re the right candidate for us.

TIP #2

Being part of the group exercises is more important than leading them. Of course, it’s always good to see leadership skills but we’re also looking at how you interact with, and support others.

TIP #3

Research Accenture and our competitors and try to understand what makes us stand out in the marketplace. Link any research back to why you want to work for us. Anyone can read up on the website, but we want to know about what interests you about working here. Think about what you would enjoy on a day-to-day basis about the job you are applying for.

TIP #4

When asked a competency based question try to use the STAR approach, i.e. break out your answer into the Situation, Task, Action taken and Result. This helps you structure your response and gives the interviewer a well-rounded answer.

TIP #5

Prepare a variety of competency examples so we can see that you have experiences showcasing different behaviours.


ONLINE APPLICATION FORM HELP

Basics

It’s a good idea to do a draft application. And make sure you’re fully prepared to discuss what you've included in your application form at the interview stage.

Education

The Education section asks for the 'Grade' and 'Out of'. Please list your average (or predicted) grade to date in a numerical format depending on the scoring system at your higher education institution.

Career Objectives

In this section, you should enter a brief summary of why you would like to work at Accenture in the role you have chosen to apply for. This is your opportunity to demonstrate the research you have done and to prove your understanding of Accenture, our marketplace and the role you are applying for. Avoid just paraphrasing text from the website.

Visa/Work Permit status

The Reasonable Adjustments section is where you can provide your Visa/Work Permit status.

Extenuating Circumstances

If you feel that you have extenuating circumstances that impacted your academic performance, please email irelandgraduates@accenture.com outlining the situation that prevented you from meeting our academic requirements and provide supporting documentation (letter from university or medical practitioner) for review.
