    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture.

    Interview

    I first received an email to schedule a call with a recruiter.
    The recruiter was very nice and mainly checking if my experience would meet the requirements of the role.
    Next step was the in-person interview.
    My interview was very mellow. 2 interviewers. One focused in more technical questions to see my experience and skills and the other was asking about scenarios.
    My tip would be: think about different examples so you can use in your interview. It's important to study your own experience so you are confident enough when you need to answer these questions.
