My work placement at Disney has been the best year of my life so far, there is always something exciting going on i.e. Premiers! Plus you have the chance to meet 100's of people and find out what they do, which has lead me to a stronger decision of what I want to do when I finish University.
I have really enjoyed my internship with Disney. It's been so interesting to learn about all the work that goes on 'behind the scenes' at such a global company. I've always loved Disney, and I've always loved the theatre, so working in the theatrical department was a perfect match for me.
It was fantastic to work at Disney and get experience working for a large global company. There was plenty of opportunities to learn new skills through courses and the other workers appreciated you were an intern and were very friendly and were always willing to offer advice and support. Plus, meeting the characters every now and again certainly helped.
I enjoyed it a lot, due to my love for Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm franchises. However, that is not the main reason as I learnt how an international company works and what office life is like. I learn new skills and made lots of connections.
They don't come much better than this in terms of the atmosphere in the office. Every one is positive and willing to help develop you as an individual and you are treated like a normal employee as opposed to an intern. There was always something to do and it always helps when Mickey Mouse occasionally walks past your desk from time to time.
