1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
Thoroughly enjoyed working at WB. Great insight into publicity and the film industry. Felt as though the work I completed genuinely helped towards publicity campaigns - not an internship where you will just be making cups of tea!
2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
Felt well valued and work was appreciated.
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
Management/Supervisors were available if you had any questions and were also happy to complete progress reports. They took time out of their days to speak to visiting university lecturers too.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
Days were always busy and there was never a day where we had nothing to do.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
Responsibility on projects increased as I became more experienced. Now have a lot of responsibility and am able to manage projects myself.
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
I gained both personal and professional skills whilst on my placement year. The skills I've learnt will definitely help me in managing my final year at university and in my graduate job.
7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
Atmosphere in the office varied between departments. My department was fairly quiet compared to others but everyone was always very friendly and made the effort to chat. We would also occasionally see each other after work and go to the pub etc.
8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
Very well organised. WB have been taking students on placement for years, so everything was set up very well.
9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
We took part in various training courses in and outside of the office.
10. What were the perks on your work placement?
There were no perks with
this Placement Year
11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
They do not have a graduate scheme but always look to their previous intern pool when considering applicants for new job openings.
12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
Interns were always very social and often had events planned after work.
13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
Central London is very expensive so was sometimes hard to socialise.
14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
Lots of places to go in central London but was very expensive.

Yes, lots of opportunities, i.e. sports or volunteering.
