I highly enjoyed my work placement with ProspectSoft due to a large number of reasons. Firstly, as it's an SME, it has a great culture to become close to the people you work with, allowing for personal growth within the job and also developing skills. There are also many opportunities to take on which provided me with a great deal of responsibility in the role - something which I feel is exclusive to this company, as we were treated just like any other member of staff. The job itself has a variety of roles that kept me busy and engaged throughout the year.
As a whole, the placement was consistently enjoyable. What I took away most would probably be the people I got to live and work with, who were all really easy to get on with. I would also gain a thorough understanding of what my university degree in industry and what I would need to improve or I could capitalise on. Working at ProspectSoft was truly satisfying and gave me the experience of responsibility/respect from delivering real-world work.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement. I got up to interesting things and learned many new skills which will help me in the future. The atmosphere and work ethic was very comfortable, and I felt like part of the team from day one. In my initial search for a placement, I was looking for a role in which I could have a hand in many different areas and learn and apply skills that I did previously had little knowledge. I was provided with this opportunity daily at ProspectSoft. I never felt like I was out of my depth thanks to the knowledgeable and very approachable people on my team, and in fact on other teams.
I thoroughly enjoyed my work placement at ProspectSoft. When first starting the placement, I had very little knowledge of the software world or even really what CRM was, however over the past year I’ve developed an extensive knowledge of the industry, how tech companies operate and now a future career path I’m hoping to pursue. There was also a great social side to the company, I also met loads of great people both placements and non-placements.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement at ProspectSoft Ltd. My role was to provide first line IT support, and I enjoyed providing technical related support as well as providing answers to more general enquiries. Throughout the placement I have developed my technical and soft skills such as problem solving and database knowledge and have also learnt new skills. As well as the experience, the people there are all lovely and there are a lot of social events. It has been a great year.
I can honestly say I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my placement at ProspectSoft. Right from the get-go, I was made to feel as though I was a highly valued member of the team, with all the responsibilities of a full-time employee. The placement as a whole was extremely well organised, so I knew what was expected of me day to day - which definitely put me at ease going into a new working environment. ProspectSoft is a relatively young company with lots of the management team being previous placements themselves, meaning they understand what it is like to be in your shoes. Overall, I can see why the placement scheme is a highly successful at ProspectSoft – I have learned so much over the past year and I would recommend it to any undergraduate looking to undertake a year in industry.
I loved my placement. Whether talking about the job I was doing, the people I was working with or the people that I lived with, the whole experience was brilliant. My placement has given me a much clearer idea of where I want to take my career once I finish university. Not only this but I now have a much better idea of the sort of work that will provide me with satisfaction and enjoyment.
Overall I found my placement to be extremely worthwhile but it had its ups and downs. It started relatively slowly with repetitive tasks but as the months went on and I gained more experience I was placed on tasks with new exciting technologies which I really enjoyed.
I have enjoyed all aspects of my placement. I have enjoyed coming into work. This is mainly because of the great team I have been able to work with as well as the responsibility I have been given. I have enjoyed the jobs I have been tasked with during my placement. Over the 13 months of the placement I have been involved in lots of different jobs which helped keep work exciting.
The experience I received working at ProspectSoft Ltd as an Assistant Developer for a period of 13 months is priceless to me. Every opportunity I have been given, every task I’ve taken on and every relationship I’ve built has contributed significantly to the progress of my personal growth. Being in an environment like this, my confidence and my spoken English improved.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the responsibility appropriately provided alongside support and fortunately have found an area I want to work in, in the future. Enjoyed the adapting to working life also and success of course brings enjoyment.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement. I felt welcomed by the team from day one and have enjoyed every minute of it, even when things were tough and busy. I will be very sad to leave such a great company and fantastic team to head back to Uni.
I enjoyed working at ProspectSoft for 13 months. Being the Account Management placement, I was talking to customers every day, which was something I wanted in my placement. I also had the flexibility to get involved with other areas of the business I was interested in, and therefore got involved in a lot of the support side of things. It also makes the placement enjoyable that there were so many other placement students on the same placement in such a small company, which adds a real social element to working at ProspectSoft.
My placement year at ProspectSoft has been absolutely amazing! I genuinely couldn’t ask for a better company to be a part of. Over these past 13 months, I have consistently been surrounded by an awesome bunch of people who are so helpful, supportive and charismatic – I feel extremely lucky to be a part of the ProspectSoft family! I’ve not only developed a huge range of skills that will help me thrive in the graduate world, but I have evolved massively as a person. With genuine care and support from the company, I have been able to flourish as an individual and feel more confident in my abilities. My Marketing Manager has been incredible; she has always encouraged me to believe in myself and without a doubt, she will always be an inspiration to me. There is such a loving, family environment to ProspectSoft, and the social and buzzing atmosphere is what makes ProspectSoft so special. Through huge amounts of responsibility and exposure to great opportunities, ProspectSoft have provided me with an invaluable experience, skills and memories that I’ll carry forever.
