    First Thing that you need to check the Min eligibility of both the TCS and Accenture.

    They must have sent the Eligibilty to your Placement Cell.

    Also check that can each candidate sit in all the campus interviews , if he mettes the Eligibilty criteria.

    If the answer is Yes, than you should sit in Both the TCS as well as the Accenture Interview.

    Please rebember TCS interview is going to be conducted on 1st Day, so if you dont get selectedin TCS , you can always try for Accenture on the second day.

    So in my view, give Both the Interviews, there is no Harm in giving it.
    Also start Preparing for the interviews.

    TCS

    As of now, TCS is the best company in the Indian software industry. So, its always beneficial to get placed in TCS. They are offering one of the best salary package in the industry.

    Also the exposure we get in the top level companies will be high as the companies will have involvement in different projects and you can get chance to be a part of it.

    Accenture

    Accenture is one of the upcoming companies. You have said that your interest is in Accenture, but not specified about the reason behind this. You should select a company based on your career goal.

    If you are planning to built your career in the software industry, experience is good companies will help you to get good jobs. A two year experiences in TCS will give you a better job profile in Accenture.

    Your Chances

    Is there any problem in applying for both the companies ? Though you get a placement offer in TCS, company won't block you from appearing for further companies.

    But sometimes colleges are having this rule to increase their placements. In such case also, its better to avoid risks. As TCS is the best option, you can apply for that. Rest of the decision depends on your priorities.

    All the Best

    Hello

    Its look like Accenture is your Dream company, Its good to hear that. Definitely you will have a great future ahead.

    Now coming to the point you are clearly saying that you are eligible for the both companies , so no need to worry about eligible criteria.

    * My advise for you is skip the TCS and go for Accenture, but you need good communication skills and subject knowledge to get placed in Accenture.

    * It seems you have talent to get job in Accenture . So try for it.

    * If you get job in Accenture , your career will be superb. you can get great experience by working in this firm.

    * Working in Accenture is not like in TCS. But job in TCS will be like a Governament job.

    * Other wise do one thing ask your college training & placement authority that" is there any possibility to sit for both ". If is there then you will be lucky...

    All the best...

    Hello friend,

    It is not necessary to skip the TCS interview.

    It is better to attend both the interviews

    I advice you to do this because, getting selected in an interview is not the easiest thing because it all depends on hard work and luck too

    Getting through TCS is far easy while compared to that of accenture

    Because in TCS we will have to face only three rounds namely.


    1.Aptitude

    2.Direct technical interview

    3.Personal interview


    Whereas in accenture you will have to face four rounds namely,

    1.Aptitude

    2.Technical

    3.Personal interview

    4.Group discussion

    So better attend both the interviews.

    Best wishes :-)

    Hello,

    If you can appear in both the interviews of TCS as well as of Accenture then i would suggest you to appear in both.
    Yes if there is rule in your college that after one selection the candidate can not sit for next companies
    then you should skip the TCS as your wish is for Accenture.

    The rest depends upon your interest.Both companies are good in their fields as you would know about them.

    So prepare well for the interviews. Good Luck.

    • I think, First you need to check out the minimum eligiblity needed in both the companies and you must have to satisfy the same.
    • Both the TCS and accenture are good company.
    • Since you want to get a job in accenture and also preparing for it.
    • Then there is no harm if you first appear in the interview conducted by TCS company.
    • It will give you an experience how to present Yourself in the interview.
    • This experience will help you to perform good at the accenture interview.

    Re: Should i skip TCS and appear for direct PI in Accenture?

    Hello friend,

    My personal suggestion for you is to attend both the interviews....

    You got a chance to attend direct interview for TCS...You just take the interview...You will get to know about yourself, i mean the position where you stand actually especially your technical knowledge, your communication skills, your confidence level and many more...This year TCS is recruiting only a minimum number of candidates in each college...So the interview is very tough especially for the students who are getting into direct interviews...If you are attending TCS interview, u can find some mistakes in you which can be rectified in your second interview..Just take the interview as a practice or a mock interview for your next interview.


    Usually Accenture wont conduct direct interviews...In all case it will conduct the following rounds

    1. Aptitude
    2. Group Discussion
    3. Technical interview
    4. Direct interview

    If you are allowed to attend direct personal interview the its well and good..
    * Speak confidently and boldly..
    * Be strong in the basics of your technical part...
    * Speak fluently
    * Finally your good attitude opens the door to success...
    *
    Answer confidently to all the questions with a bright smile in your face...

    All the best for your interview..Do well

    Re: Should i skip TCS and appear for direct PI in Accenture?

    Dear Friend,
    You have not specified that the both of the company are occupying Zero-Slot for campusing or not. If both company are on Zero-Slot placement type then you are surely eligible to sit for both of the company. Then it would be better for you that you are sitting for both for TCS & Accenture and if you are placed in both TCS & Accenture then it would be the best option to you to chose Accenture.

    But if there is certain limitation in your college that you can't sit for any other company after getting selected in a company then it is a risk for you..............
    i.e. if you are selected in TCS then you can't sit for Accenture.


    But I don't think so because Accenture is coming on the next day of TCS recruitment. So it probably not possible to TCS to publish the result on the same day of campusing.
    It should be the zero slot campusing. In such a case you can sit for both of TCS & Accunture.


    In addition, I would like to say you that TCS is not bad. It is the top IT company in India. Its employee satisfaction is best.
    Though Accenture is an
    international company......its your choice.


    So best of luck, dear.
