Seeking Tech Consulting Advice about Accenture, PwC, etc.


Joshua Scott Concord, NC

I just had my initial interview with Accenture. I am seeking advice if I receive a follow-up interview. Additionally, I am looking for mentoring in tech consulting overall. I am looking to learn more about the field. I am transitioning into IT with a focus in cybersecurity. I have my Sec+ and some knowledge of programming languages. I'm currently an IT intern.

I would also encourage you to check out our Career Hub as well: On that site, you can search by field of interest to find open positions in your desired field.

Wishing you all the best!

Hi Joshua - thank you for your service!

My advice for follow up interviews is twofold. One, be prepared to expand upon the skills/competencies you discussed during your initial interview. Two, I see follow-ups as a 2-way assessment. Often times you will have a few follow up interviews for the same position. This is an opportunity for multiple people on that team to get to know you, your story, and your skillsets. As you are speaking with multiple people on a team that you may work with you have an opportunity to gauge the team's culture and whether you think the role is a good fit for you.

I'm happy to connect offline about IT consulting. I was an Army Signal Officer and considered that career path myself. Feel free to send me a private message and we can set up time to connect.

Hi Joshua - I am just joining the IT Security team in J&J. I will keep my eyes and ears open in case something comes up in 2023. Can I reach you through this tool if I hear of something in the future? Also, if you would like to send me your resume, I can pass it along. All the best, Kathy
