    How do you react when your team misses a deadline?

      What You Need to Know

      Missing deadlines should be avoided at all costs. However, when multiple deadlines are due at the same time when priorities change, or all hands are needed on deck, sometimes missed deadlines are inevitable. There is a time and place for everything. We're all human, and sometimes mistakes happen. Yet, being asked to share details about a professional setback is a question worth posing in an interview.

      The interviewer would like to understand how you react to disappointment when things don't go according to plan. They are also curious about what you'll share and how you'll contextualize it. They're curious if you learn from your mistakes and hold yourself accountable. Your answer should speak to your EQ and your experience level.

      Provide an example of your missed deadline and walk the interviewer through the direction you took. Be sure to include the impact it had on the business or project aside from how late it was. Present the situation where it was in the team's best interest to miss that deadline over another. Do not deflect blame or point fingers at others on your team. Do not offer excuses. Avoid examples resulting in disciplinary action.

    Tell me about a time you had to collaborate with a colleague with whom you did not see eye-to-eye. How did you ensure that you got along well enough to make it a success?

This doesn't necessarily mean you agree with them on every issue. It means you can work well together and function as a team regardless of your differences. Showcase your ability to learn from and collaborate with others when you may not wholeheartedly agree with their perspective or approach. Detail your approach towards team collaborations.

      What You Need to Know

      You work with your clients to help them scale and see more success and profitability. The interviewer wants to know how you would help Accenture to do the same. They are not looking for you to reinvent their entire organization, and it might be presumptuous to suggest how they could improve things without knowing if they've already taken those measures or if they have a different approach that is singular to their company. In other words, without knowing why they do things the way they do them, you couldn't possibly understand what would work for them. Rather than suggesting what areas need improving upon, present what unique and desirable traits you possess that would prove a valuable asset anywhere.

    How do you learn the company culture of a new client when taking on their project?

      What You Need to Know

      A large part of understanding the needs of your clients is first understanding their company culture and where they want to steer their culture next. You'll need to earn their trust to be granted full access to their culture with absolute transparency. Sometimes, this takes longer than one would like, but it is necessary for this line of work. Discuss the ways you gain access to an organization's workplace culture and values and how you build trusting relationships.

    How do you manage the life cycle of your projects, ensuring on-time deliverables and deadlines?

      What You Need to Know

      The interviewer is looking for insights into your work style and work ethic. This explores your communication, time management, and project management skills. It also touches on your client approach and how you serve their needs best.

      An efficient process can make the difference between a job well done and a project that falls apart. The interviewer needs to ensure you have a process in place when you take on a new project. They also want to ensure you aren't counting on them to train you from scratch. Discuss the tools, resources, and methods you use to meet your clients' expectations, and try to align them with their philosophy and approach where appropriate.

  • Leadership

    39.

    Have you ever supervised or trained junior consultants?

      What You Need to Know

      The interviewer would like to know more about your leadership and development skills and how you foster growth in your teams. Share any instances where you've trained other consultants. Investing in the development of others on your team is taking an active interest in the bigger picture and translates to investing in your own development. If you've supervised or trained junior consultants, discuss how many, your process, and the tools and resources you used. Share how far they've come in their professional development since. If you have not managed or trained other consultants, that is okay too! Discuss the ways you encourage and help your fellow employees, even if you do not have a formal leadership role.

  • Travel

    40.

    Are you willing to relocate or travel for work?

      What You Need to Know

      Your answer to this question will offer insights into how well you've prepared for this interview. Accenture is a global professional services company with over 674,000 employees across more than 40 industries. Their offices and operations are in more than 200 cities within 50 countries, serving clients in more than 120 countries, with 185 partners in North America, Europe, and other growth markets.

      With offices spread across the globe, they're likely evaluating whether you are a good fit for this opportunity. They also want to know how flexible and committed you are. Thoroughly explore the details of the job posting and their website, and look for any indications whether travel is a requirement for the position. If thorough research yields no answer to this question, then asking clarifying questions is perfectly acceptable. Just avoid asking any questions you could easily have answered yourself.

      If relocating or traveling for work does not interest you, refrain from saying so. Ask clarifying questions, expressing that you'd like to know more about what that looks like in context with the expectations of the role and that you are flexible and open to further discussion. This way, you keep your options open rather than shutting down any interview negotiations.
