We technically aren't supposed to. But, if you go to the PEI portion of the website and take a look at the different elements we ask about, you should be able to backwards engineer it pretty easily. Recommend having a few different stories and examples mapped out and thought through for each element in advance of the interviews.

I guess my only question is if they’re looking for you to answer something within the three “buckets” do they give you an idea of which one they’re asking about? Or are you supposed to just give a story then go from there?

Hello I'm currently a Consultant in my second year at Accenture. Prior to that I had 10 years in industry. I had an initial conversation with TCS regarding an Industry Advisor position.

With that said can anybody shed some insight on what the move to TCS would be as Industry Advisor from the consultant with Accenture? Is that a level between M and SM at Accenture?
