    Risk Management Consulting Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone call was with recruiter and the person the entire process was going to be managed by. It consisted of basic questions regarding my background. Ensure to know your resume and your relevant experience compared to the job description and expectations. Also, be able to give information regarding current compensation/expectations, desired office location, and relevant demographic questions.

    I asked if the recruiter had any feedback regarding my qualifications for the role and she explained that I had passed the first round and was going to be scheduled for my second round which would be the behavioral interview, if I then passed this interview, I would be given a 3rd interview for Skills and if all went well, then I would be given a confirming round (final) interview in NYC with a partner and senior manager.

    2nd Interview (Behavioral/Situational): My interview was with an HR professional, with Accenture for 10 years conducting interview from HR perspective.
    I over prepared every question possible by using google questions. However, I recommend knowing basic behavioral questions, such as problem solving examples, team work examples, overcoming conflict, and the such.
     -Similar question ex: Tell me about a time you began a team, how did you go about it?
     -Similar question ex: Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a co-worker and how you handled it?

    3rd Interview (Skills Interview): This truly depends on which role you are applying for and what team or sector you will be part of. My interview was for Financial Services, Risk Management - Operations Risk Management. My interviewer had been with Accenture for 8 years and currently senior manager. I did a lot of preparation for this interview and it went really well.

    A lot of questions based on Risk Management, Basel I & II. She asked me about the pillars of the regulations. She asked me a lot of various questions and I answered them all. She gave me excellent feedback and was very happy.

    She also asked me a case question.

    All three interviews were over the phone. I was told about 4 weeks later that due to my experience being less than the requirement on the position, they encourage me to try again in a year. According to feedback, my experience was the only set back. The position required 3 years with 5 years preferred. I currently have 2.4 years of experience.
