The Role

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

It was a really enjoyable experience, everyone was friendly and supportive. I was given interesting work, and having had no previous experience of the industry, it was a great way to learn about property.

9/10

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

The buddy system was useful in helping us to meet other people in the office, and everyone is genuinely friendly. I was treated as a full member of the team and was always included in things, and was never made to feel like the 'intern'.

8/10

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

I was given help from lots of people for the intern presentation at the end of the internship - it was actually really surprising just how many people were willing to offer their time without being asked. I was also given a lot of advice about options for after graduation.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was usually very busy, however in general I didn't have to stay late.

8/10

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

I tended to do lots of smaller jobs that helped with the work my team or the other graduates were already doing. So while I didn't get overall responsibility for any one thing, I did feel that I was trusted to help with the overall work the team was producing.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Although the internship was not directly related to my degree, I think I learnt a lot about working in the industry. I had a lot of face to face interaction with clients and I think this will be useful for any career.

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Some sports activities but not really much else for interns, although it seems like there is a lot if you have a full time job.
