Accenture Digital Interview
Like many companies, Accenture uses a digital interview as part of its hiring process. These differ from a traditional interview in that they are not live; instead, you record your answers through the interview platform (Accenture uses HireVue) and these will be reviewed later by the hiring team.
The digital interview is your first chance to let Accenture see your personality and how you conduct yourself, so it is just as important as a face-to-face one. You should prepare for your digital interview in the same way as a regular one, making sure that you look presentable, have done your research, and are not distracted.
Typical interview questions you might face include:
- Tell us about yourself.
- Tell us about a time when you showed leadership skills.
- What does Accenture do?
- Why do you want to work for Accenture?
You should research the company’s history and some of its recent business news, as well as general industry news to make sure that you’re prepared to show your enthusiasm for the specific role with Accenture.
Try some practice interview questions and make the most of the trial questions that you are given before the actual interview. This is your chance to fix any technical issues and get used to being in front of the camera.
There are three sections to the Accenture assessment centres, which are held virtually.
You will be asked to research a relevant business topic to discuss one-on-one with a recruiter. This is not a presentation, but is a chance to show off your knowledge and passion for the industry.
Virtual reality exercises
Accenture takes a unique approach, using virtual reality technology to create an immersive and creative experience. The VR exercises are used to assess how well you solve problems, absorb information, and prioritise your time.
The most common exercises are: putting a set of hieroglyphs in order using as few moves as possible; sorting objects into size order; and answering quickfire common knowledge questions.
A tip to note is that some of the tasks are impossible or would take too long to fully complete – your assessors are really looking to see how well you manage this. If something is taking up too much of your time, know when to move on and try to complete other tasks.
Accenture uses a strength-based interview style, which is more positive and focuses on identifying your strengths and how they will be an asset on the job.
While this kind of interview tends to be more enjoyable and they want you to be honest, it is important to remember how to show that you embody what Accenture is looking for. Refer back to its code of business and ensure that you have read the job specification carefully; then you can use specific examples to show how you meet these desirable qualities.

Analysis is challenging!
I am very challenged by almost all the questions. The way I interpret every detail needs to be very careful to obtain the right answer.

Trying my strengths
I tried the aptitude questions because I wanted to check my strengths, but I think I am not prepared fully. So first, I have to prepare myself and then attempt the questions of this type, and hope that I can clear this exam...

Super time pressure. If you don't review, you wouldn't pass this test.
