About recruiting and hiring process at Accenture

Here’s what happens after you apply for a role:

Our Process

  • Confirming receipt 

    Once you’ve applied, you’ll get an email from us letting you know we have your application and that it’s moving into the review stage.

  • Reviewing your application

    Our recruiters will review your application to see how it fits with the role you applied for. And, because they have insight into roles you may not have spotted in your search, they’ll also look for other potential matches for you. You’ll need to submit a separate application if you’d like to apply for anything they recommend.

  • Reaching out

    We’ll notify you to schedule an interview if you’re selected to move forward. And if we’re not able to move forward at this time, we will keep your information in case something comes up our recruiters think you might be interested in. 

  • Meeting you

    We hold interviews over the phone, via video or in person—and we’re always glad to accommodate any adjustments you might need. The number of interviews you’ll have depends on the role.

  • Assessing your skills

    For some roles, we may ask you to complete an online activity so we can learn more about your technical skills, natural strengths or decision-making process. 

  • Offering you a role

    If you’ve been selected for a role, we’ll reach out with an offer and hopefully start working with you to plan your first day with us.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: We have been alerted to the existence of fraudulent messages asking job seekers to set-up payment to cover various costs associated with applying for or establishing employment at Accenture. No one is ever required to pay for employment at Accenture. Learn more.
