Did they get interviews? ACN's referral system is shitty.

It's not you it's them...you are giving me it's not you it's them...I invented that excuse

There is something technically wrong with the Accenture referral system. A friend tried referring me once and the referral ended up with a team in India.

Referred a friend with 3.99 gpa and triple major from middle tier public school and relevant experience at a competitor. Yet no interview.

The key is to refer them to a recruiter contact directly. If you were hired by a recruiter that's who I'd reach out to.

For any jobs they'd want (Consulting mostly), HR is essentially locked to only pulling from focus schools. Usually people only get through without an MD driving it is if they need to meet a quota and the people from preferred schools didn't accept. In the southeast, my experience has been near impossible to get people from outside Georgia Tech, Florida or an HBCU into a consulting role... unless an MD specifically pushes it.

Makes sense

Would a previous undergrad internship at a firm help with my chances of securing a job offer? Previously interned with EY and didn’t know if that would help me lateral there.
