Accenture careers and interview through Employee Referral


Accenture has branded its employee referral job campaign as Talent Scout. Accenture encourages employee referral jobs. First get referred by an employee. Then try to appear for the walk-in as it is the best way to get into Accenture. When they open a RR (Recruitment Request), the HR opens it for all location so that they can get resumes from all the metro cities. The internal approval may take around a week. Once the RR is flagged for external hiring, an employee of Accenture will be able to upload your profile in the portal.

Make sure that you provide your Address, Date of Birth and location preference to the referrer and also upload it in the resume. The employee needs to refer through this The referral process is slightly cumbersome. First the employee has to enter basic details of the candidate like Name, DOB, and Location preference and contact number (Note contact number is to be added without zero) next, the employee will have to enter all the details including previous employment and education details.

Normally, the first technical round will be telephonic. There could be one more managerial round. The final round will be face to face round, so you will need to go Accenture's office for the same. However if you do not have an Accenture's office in your current city, then the HR will ask you to come to a nearby City. For example, a candidate from Ranchi (Jharkhand) was selected in the first round. He was asked to go to Gurgaon office for the Second round

The numbers of openings are approx. 3 times the requirement. So if they need 5 Java resources, they will have the opening for 15 Java resources. If they shortlist 10 in the final round, they may conduct final face-to-face round in for 8-9 candidates. Then they will roll out the offer to only 5. The other 3-4 will be a backup.

 Once the candidate joins the company, the employee gets the referral amount after a month when the candidate joins. For example, if the candidate joins on the 29th of February 2014, the referral amount will be credited to the referrer's account in the Salary of March 2014. However if the candidate leaves the company within six months of joining then the referral amount will be recovered from the payroll.

 They also come up with several campaigns for Employee Referral. See a sample list of gifts and vouchers distributed to Employees.
