Former Senior Technology Consulting Analyst at Accenture

For a consulting analyst position, the recruiters would expect a candidate who is highly analytical, has problem solving skills and demonstrated leadership in previous experiences/ at school. Also you will be expected to provide solutions to experienced business units in specific industries and you would probably have little to no experience about the topic so it is extremely important to be able to 'Learn on the go' and continuously provide value to the client. You should also be emphasizing that you can work independently, create high quality deliverables without much supervision but also understand the bureaucracy of large enterprises.
Before interviewing Accenture or anywhere like it, it will be helpful to be knowledgeable on the core values of the company and think of how you fit and/or admire those values. That gives you something to talk about, it shows your passion for the company. In addition, have some previous knowledge on an interesting project or 2 that the company has shared. If you don't already have questions prepared, these 2 things can be something you briefly discuss at that point to leave a good last impression.
Former Transaction Processing Associate at Accenture

My interview was a group interview with 5 people. They had asked me a wealth of questions regarding my knowledge of excel and general computer use. They also asked me more typical questions like "What would you do if you encountered X problem?" or "What is one of your biggest pet peeves?". I could tell that the questions that were being asked were not really prepared beforehand and depended on the personality of the person asking the questions.
