Accenture Recruitment Process

Interview Process

The Accenture interview process is a little challenging as per the experience shared by some of the previously interviewed candidates. The candidates are often daunted by the tough questions in every interview rounds at Accenture, as the number of applications received would be a little high. Hence a thoughtful preparation strategy and consistent practice can definitely enable you to crack this interview process.

First of all, the academic criteria to apply for an Accenture interview is as below:

  • Candidates possessing a relevant graduate degree with an aggregate of 65% are eligible.
  • Candidate should be passed in all the subjects and not have an active backlog.
  • The education gap should not be more than one year in between your studies.

Usually, the interview process at Accenture involves the following three rounds:

  1. Online Assessment Test
  2. Technical Interview
  3. HR Interview

For experienced candidates also, the Accenture interview rounds will normally remain the same. But in the case of some important roles, you may have to face two or more rounds of technical interviews followed by an HR interview.

Interview Rounds

Online Assessment Test:
This first round is a little difficult among all the other rounds as it is an eliminator round in the Accenture interview process. Accenture online assessment tests are designed to examine the cognitive function and ability of the appearing candidates. This round has questions based on Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, and Verbal Ability. Here in this round, you will be required to answer the prescribed number of questions in the allocated time frame.

Technical Interview:
If you clear the online test, then you will be called for the technical interview. The technical round mainly focuses to evaluate the coding & problem-solving skills of the candidate. The candidates should have basic knowledge of data structures, algorithms, and other computer science-related subjects like OS, DBMS, CN, etc. in order to ace the technical interview. Depending on the job role you’re applying to, you can expect to be tested in respective areas. If you are an experienced candidate or applying for a critical role, you might have to face two or more rounds of technical interviews.

HR Interview:
The HR Interview is the final round to select a candidate as an employee at Accenture since it helps to determine a candidate’s personality and other related aspects. Here the questions can be asked are of varied range starting from your introduction, qualification, experience, hobbies, strengths & weaknesses, salary expectations, etc. In this round, company-related questions on Accenture can also be asked. While the other interview rounds at Accenture gauge your skills and accomplishments, the objective of an HR interview is to judge your personality, check your background, ability to handle the job role, and decide whether you are the right fit for the company.

Accenture Technical Interview Questions: Freshers and Experienced

1. What is the use of “static” keyword in Java?

  • The static keyword is a non-access modifier in Java that is useful for memory management.
  • Static property can be shared by all the objects, no separate copies of static members will be created on object creation.
  • No need to create the instance of the class for accessing static members, we can directly access them by using the class name.
  • The static keyword can be used with the variable, block, method, and nested classes for memory management.
    • Static variable: When a variable is declared with the static keyword, a single copy of the variable will be created and the same variable will be shared across all objects of the class (a class to which the static variable belongs).
    • Static block: A static block helps with the initialization of the static data members. It is a group of statements within a Java class and gets executed exactly once when the class is first loaded into the JVM(Java Virtual Machine).
    • Static method: If the method is declared with the static keyword, then it is considered a static method. The main( ) method is one of the examples of a static method. Static methods are having restrictions such as they can directly call other static methods only, and they can access static data directly.
    • Static class: Only a nested class can be created as a static class. Nested static class doesn’t need a reference of Outer class(a class in which the nested class is defined). A static class does not have permission to access non-static members of the Outer class.

2. Can we implement multiple interfaces in a single Java class?

Yes, it is allowed to implement multiple interfaces in a single class. In Java, multiple inheritances is achieved by implementing multiple interfaces into the class. While implementing, each interface name is separated by using a comma(,) operator.
Syntax:

public class ClassName implements Interface1, Interface2,..., InterfaceN
{  
    //Code   
}  

Example:

public class InterviewBit implements X, Y
{
    //Code
}

Here, X and Y are the interfaces implemented by the class InterviewBit.

3. What is the significance of the “super” and “this” keywords in Java?

  • super keyword: In Java, the “super” keyword is used to provide reference to the instance of the parent class(superclass). Since it is a reserved keyword in Java, it cannot be used as an identifier. This keyword can also be used to invoke parent class members like constructors and methods.
  • this Keyword: In Java, the “this” keyword is used to refer to the instance of the current class. Since it is a reserved keyword in Java, it cannot be used as an identifier. It can be used for referring object of the current class, to invoke a constructor of the current class, to pass as an argument in the method call or constructor call, to return the object of the current class.

4. What is run-time polymorphism and how it is achieved in Java?

  • Run-time polymorphism(dynamic binding or dynamic method dispatch) implies that the call to an overridden method is resolved dynamically during run-time instead of compile-time.
  • Run-time polymorphism is achieved with the help of method overriding in Java. When a child class(subclass) has the same method name, return type, and parameters as the parent(superclass), then that method overrides the superclass method, this process is known as method overriding.
    Example:
    The below example has one superclass Animal and three subclasses, Birds, Mammals, and Reptiles. Subclasses extend the superclass and override its print() method. We will call the print() method with the help of the reference variable of Animal class i.e., parent class. The subclass method is invoked during runtime since it is referring to the object of the subclass and the subclass method overrides the superclass method. As Java Virtual Machine(JVM) decides method invocation, it is run-time polymorphism.
class Animal{  
  void print(){
    System.out.println("Inside Animal");
  }  
}  
class Birds extends Animal{  
  void print(){
    System.out.println("Inside Birds");
  } 
}
class Mammals extends Animal{  
  void print(){
System.out.println("Inside Mammals");
} 
  }
class Reptiles extends Animal{  
  void print(){
    System.out.println("Inside Reptiles");
  } 
}
class InterviewBit{
  public static void main(String args[]){ 
    Animal a = new Animal();
    Animal b = new Birds(); //upcasting  
    Animal m = new Mammals(); //upcasting  
    Animal r = new Reptiles(); //upcasting  
    a.print();
    b.print();
    m.print();  
    r.print();  
  }  
}  

Output:

Inside Animal
Inside Birds
Inside Mammals
Inside Reptiles

5. Distinguish between Array and ArrayList provided by Java.

Array ArrayList
An array is of fixed length ArrayList is of variable length
Length of the array cannot be changed once created Length of the array can be changed after creation
It can store both primitive types and objects It can store only objects, not primitives(it automatically converts primitive type to object)
Using an assignment operator we can store elements into an array With the help of add() method elements are stored into an ArrayList
An array can be multi-dimensional ArrayList is always one-dimensional

6. What is the “Diamond problem” in Java?

The “Diamond problem” usually happens in multiple inheritances. Java does not support multiple inheritances, so in the case of Java, the diamond problem occurs when you are trying to implement multiple interfaces. When two interfaces having methods with the same signature are implemented to a single class, it creates ambiguity for the compiler about which function it has to call, so it produces an error at the compile time. Its structure looks similar to diamond thus it is called a “Diamond problem”. 

Here, if we try to access the print() function using the DerivedClass3 object, it will create confusion for the compiler that which copy of the print() function it has to call i.e., from DerivedClass1 or DervivedClass2.

“Diamond problem” is solved by using virtual inheritance. It guarantees that the child class will get only one instance of the common base class.

7. How can you differentiate between C, C++, and Java?

C++ Java
It is a procedural language. It is an object-oriented language (not purely object-oriented as it is possible to write code without the creation of a class). It is an object-oriented language (not purely object-oriented, as it supports primitive data types).
It supports pointers. It supports pointers. It does not support pointers.
Platform dependent language Platform dependent language Platform independent language
Not possible to create our own package. It is allowed to create the package in C++. Here, we can create our package and can include the classes.
The concept of inheritance was not implemented. We can use multiple inheritances in C++. It does not support multiple inheritances.
It does not support data hiding, so data is less secured as it can be accessed by the outside world. It supports data hiding, so data cannot be accessed by the outside world. It supports data hiding, so data cannot be accessed by the outside world.

8. What are lambda expressions in Java?

  • A Lambda expression is a function that can be created without including it in any class. It was introduced in Java 8.
  • It is used to provide the interface implementation which has a functional interface. It does not require defining the method again for providing the implementation, it is allowed to just write the implementation code. Thus it saves plenty of coding.
  • Lambda expression is considered as a function, the .class file will not be created by the compiler.
  • They are generally used for simple callbacks or event listeners implementation, or in functional programming with the Java Streams API.
  • Lambda Expression Syntax is:
    (argument_list) -> {body}
    Three components of Lamda expression are:
    1. argument_list: Zero or more number of arguments.
    2. -> (arrow-token): Used to link argument_list and body of lambda expression.
    3. body: Contains statements and expressions for lambda expression.
  • A Java example program to illustrate lambda expressions by implementing the user-defined functional interface is given below:
// A functional interface with a single abstract method. 
interface ExampleInterface
{
    // An abstract method
    void abstractPrint(int a);
}
class InterviewBit
{
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        /* A lambda expression to implement the above functional interface. */
        ExampleInterface ob = (int a)->{System.out.println(a)};
  
        // This calls above lambda expression and prints 20.
        ob.abstractPrint(20);
    }
}

In the above example program, Example Interface is the functional interface that has a single abstract method abstractPrint(). By using lambda expression within InterviewBit class, we are implementing the functional interface by providing implementation code for the abstract method within an interface.

9. Can you differentiate between “var++” and “++var”?

Expressions “var++” and “++var” are used for incrementing the value of the “var” variable.

“var++” will first give the evaluation of expression and then its value will be incremented by 1, thus it is called as post-incrementation of a variable. “++var” will increment the value of the variable by one and then the evaluation of the expression will take place, thus it is called pre-incrementation of a variable.
Example:

/* C program to demonstrate the difference between var++ and ++var */ 

#include<stdio.h>  
int main()  
{  
    int x,y;  
    x=7, y=1;  
    printf("%d %d", x++, x);   //will generate 7, 8 as output  
    printf("%d %d", ++y, y);    //will generate 8, 8 as output  
}

10. Explain memory allocation process in C.

  • Memory allocation process indicates reserving some part of the memory space based on the requirement for the code execution.
  • There are two types of memory allocation done in C:
    1. Static memory allocation: The memory allocation during the beginning of the program is known as static memory allocation. In this type of memory allocation allocated memory size remains fixed and it is not allowed to change the memory size during run-time. It will make use of a stack for memory management.
    2. Dynamic memory allocation: The memory allocation during run-time is considered as dynamic memory allocation. We can mention the size at runtime as per requirement. It will make use of heap data structure for memory management. The required memory space can be allocated and deallocated from heap memory. It is mainly used in pointers. Four types of the pre-defined function that are used to dynamically allocate the memory are given below:
      • malloc()
      • calloc()
      • realloc()
      • free()

11. Explain about getch() function in a C++ program. How it is different from getche() function?

The getch() is a pre-defined library function in C++ that is used to receive a single input character from the keyboard, and it holds the screen until it does not receive any character from standard input. This function does not require any arguments and it is defined under the “conio.h” header file.

#include<iostream.h>  
#include<conio.h>
void main()  
{  
    cout<<"Enter the character:"<<endl;  
    getch();  
}  

This program holds the output screen until you press any character on the keyboard.

The only difference between these two functions is getch() does not echo the character to the screen whereas getche() does.

12. What is meant by the Friend function in C++?

  • A friend() function is a function that has access to private and protected members of another class i.e., a class in which it is declared as a friend. It is possible to declare a function as a friend function with the help of the friend keyword.
  • Syntax:
class class_name 
{  
    //Statements  
    friend return_type function_name();
}

13. What is normalization in the database?

  • Normalization(data normalization or database normalization) is the technique of data organization in the database to minimize data redundancy and improve data integrity. Through database normalization, we can organize the data in tables and columns, and also we can define a relationship between these tables or columns.
  • Below are the commonly used normalization forms:
    • First Normal Form(1NF)
    • Second Normal Form(2NF)
    • Third Normal Form(3NF)
    • Boyce-Codd Normal Form(BCNF)
    • Fourth Normal Form(4NF)
    • Fifth Normal Form(5NF)

14. Can you give differences for the Primary key and Unique key in SQL?

Primary key Unique Key
It is a unique identifier for each row of a table. It is a unique identifier for table rows in the absence of a Primary key.
A single Primary key is allowed in a table. More than one Unique Key is allowed in a table.
NULL value or duplicate value is not permitted. It can have a single NULL value but a duplicate value is not permitted.
When we define a Primary key, a clustered index is automatically created if it does not already exist on the table. When we define a Unique key, a non-clustered index is created by default to enforce a UNIQUE constraint.

15. What is Pandas in Python?

  • Pandas is an open-source software library developed for Python and is useful in data manipulation and analysis. It provides plenty of data structures and operations such as modification of numerical tables and time series. It can deal with different types of files and is considered to be one of the important tools to have a grip on.
  • Some of the attributes or methods provided by Pandas are:
    • axes: It returns a row axis label list.
    • empty: It returns true if the series is empty otherwise it returns false.
    • size: It returns the count of elements in the underlying data.
    • values: It returns the series as ndarray.
    • head(): It returns the n rows from the beginning of a data frame or series.
    • tail(): Returns the n rows from the end of a data frame or series.

16. What is a classifier in Python?

A classifier is an algorithm that predicts the class of an input element on the basis of a set of features. Usually, it will make use of training data(large datasets used to train an algorithm or machine learning model) to obtain understand-ability regarding the relation between input variables and class. It is mainly used in machine learning and supervised learning.

Example: A classifier can be used to predict the soap category depending on its characteristics, which means its “features”. These features may include its fragrance, appearance, color, etc. A machine learning classifier could potentially be used to predict that soap with a round shape and brown color along with a strong fragrance of sandalwood is a Mysore Sandal soap.

17. What is the difference between dictionary and tuple in Python?

Dictionary Tuple
A dictionary is an unordered data collection in which data will be stored in the form of key-value pairs. A tuple is an ordered data collection.
Elements are accessed using key values. Elements are accessed using numeric index values.
Dictionary can have any number of values. A tuple can have only a pre-defined number of values.
It is used as a model object. It is useful for returning multiple values from a function.

18. What is a map() function in Python?

  • In Python, the map() function is useful for applying the given function on every element of a specified iterable(list, tuple, etc.).
  • Syntax for map() function is: map(func, itr)
    Where func is a function applied to every element of an iterable and itr is iterable which is to be mapped. An object list will be returned as a result of map() function execution.
  • Example:
def addition(n):
   return n+n
number=(10, 20, 30, 40)
res= map(addition, number)
print(list(res))

Output: 20, 40, 60, 80

In the above code segment, we are passing the addition() function and number as parameters to the map() function. Now, the addition() function will be applied to every element of the number tuple, each item value is added with the same item value and the result generated will be stored in the res list.

19. What is XML?

XML(Extensible Markup Language) is a mark-up language that states rules for document encoding formatting in such a way that it can be easily understood by both humans and machines. It is useful to describe the data, develop information formats, and share structured data through the internet.

20. Write a C++ program for generating the Fibonacci series.

The Fibonacci series is a number sequence in which each number is the sum of the previous two numbers. Fibonacci series will have 0 followed by 1 as its first two numbers.

The Fibonacci series is as follows:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55....

The below-given program will display the Fibonacci series of n range of numbers given by the user. If the entered range value is 1, the num1 value will be printed, i.e., 0. If the entered range value is 2, num1 and num2 values will be printed, i.e., 0 and 1. If entered range value is n, num1 and num2 value will be printed. Along with that, each next term will be calculated based on the addition of the previous two numbers and this process continues until it generates n numbers in a Fibonacci series.

#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
void main()
{
    int num1,num2,nextnum,n,i;
    cout<<"Enter the value for range:"; //Fibonacci series range value will be inputted
    cin>>n;
    num1=0;
    num2=1;
    cout<<"Fibonacci series is:"<<endl;
    if(n==1)    
        cout<<num1<<endl;  //Single value will be printed if range value is 1
    else if(n==2)
        cout<<num1<<"\t"<<num2<<endl;  //Two values will be printed if the range value is two
    else
    {
        cout<<num1<<"\t"<<num2<<"\t";
        for(i=3;i<=n;i++)    //Fibonacci series will be printed based on range limit
        {
            nextnum=num1+num2;
            cout<<nextnum<<"\t";
            num1=num2;
            num2=nextnum;
        }
    }
    getch();
}
