I really enjoyed my placement year with Tech Data. I instantly felt part of the team and valued by everyone. I was able to work on my development through training sessions and regular meetings with management. I was able to get involved in projects that interested me and develop new skills that will be necessary for graduate employment. The team were really friendly and sociable, this made me feel very comfortable right from the start.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement year, I put this primarily down to the people that I have met during my placement year in particular those within the division I have been a part off. I have found the year as a whole to be eye opening a valuable experience in my professional development.
My placement title was HR coordinator but I was able to get involved in so much more than just HR including L&D and recruitment. This meant that every day was different and I never got bored. It was hard adjusting to full time work but my first experience working in a corporate environment couldn't have been in a better company.
I had a fantastic experience working for Tech Data. I worked with some amazing people who really treated me as a real employee and not just an 'intern'. I learnt so much about the company, my job role, the industry and myself. There was a lot of support throughout from my manager and other colleagues along with working with 15 other interns who worked in different areas around the business. Couldn't have had a better experience!
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement at Tech Data. You quickly became friends with the people you were working with and were fully assisted when/if you needed any help. The managers were also always looking for things to get you more involved in so you could increase your knowledge and skill set. I can honestly say when it came to the end of the 12 months I was sad to leave.
I really enjoyed the placement at TechData. The office was a rewarding atmosphere to operate in, I felt valued by my team and my decisions did have an impact on business which was great. I had realistic targets and goals which I felt helped me to stay motivated. Finally all of my colleagues were very friendly and encouraging.
Overall I would say that I enjoyed my placement very much. I got to experience every area in HR and leant so much more than I would have ever done so in a classroom. The company is an incredibly fun one to work for with lots of different characters, all of who made my year incredibly entertaining and insightful.
My placement year at Tech Data was without the best experience I have ever had. Placement year in general has been invaluable to my education and in terms of personal development, but I also had a lot of fun during the year. During my placement I was part of the marketing department, getting involved in activities I never thought I would be able to be a part of- such as managing customer events from start to finish, attending exhibitions, and increasing my network with a range of people from all areas of the industry. I would 100% recommend Tech Data as an employer, from personal experience and in comparison to my peers at university who also completed placements, I without a doubt had the best year and would do it all over again if I could.
My placement year at Tech Data was good all around. I had the opportunity to meet and work with great people as well as learn a lot in my role. I would highly recommend Tech Data to work at for a placement year as the working atmosphere is very positive and you get a chance to integrate with everyone in the business no matter what department you work in.
