3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

When there were events on I'd often work long hours to get things done, but it's worth it!

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given a lot of responsibility as a few members of the team left and it became crucial that we all shared the workload. I picked up tasks which were originally managed by the campaign managers and that's a great achievement for me personally.

It's shown me a practical side to Marketing in the corporate world, and has put some of what we learn at university into context.
