1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I would say I extremely enjoyed the experience of working within HPE. The culture within the company meant I felt like an equal valued employee and not just "an intern". There is also a lot of investment placed into interns with HPE along with numerous opportunities to be exposed to new, fun and exciting experiences.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

There was never the feeling of doing mundane daily repeated tasks - each day was different and topics always varied. Workload was constant with enough time devoted to "other" activities such charity and volunteering work

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

Interns will not be expected to churn out reports but rather own a process. This means you will be the point of contact for a particular process and take full ownership.
