For both these roles, Accenture has a new recruitment process. The process is as follows: Registration: Colleges in one zone will be grouped & Accenture will share the registration link with the colleges directly. Zonal Level hiring will take place in the month of August for around 3 days.

The candidates that pass the Cognitive & Technical Assessment have an option to attempt the Coding Assessment in order to be considered for the Full Stack Engineer role.
