    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I loved my placement, they matched it really well to my personality, what I was looking to get out of the time and I was lucky enough to be offered part-time work for my placement company.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Very valued, my supervisor especially as she entrusted me and the other intern with job level tasks straight away, teaching and mentoring us from beginning to end; as a result I'm walking away with career ready and very tangible skills.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • There was a level of trust to the extent that we would be left to tackle the given tasks and if we were stuck help would be offered.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • I worked a minimum of 8 hours a day, and then explored the city on afternoons and weekends, so it was 8 weeks of non stop activity; which made weekends away with the CI time (to Lake George) extremely valuable.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Me and the Intern were put in charge of expanding my companies online subscription service and expanding their online presence, so we were given alot of responsibility.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I was taught to prioritize my tasks and to "work up," to be organised about what I really needed help with and bank questions for a time that was helpful to my supervisor. She taught me to be more independent with my work and to be confident in my abilities.


    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Really friendly, we were never patronised or spoken down to, it was a cooperative and postitive atmosphere.


  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • It was very well organised, I was set up with a personal helper who prepped me for every interview.


  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • They invested alot because lots of the programs we had to use were new to us, so I'm walking away with a whole new skill set.


  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • 3/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • I was offered a part-time opportunity to work remotely for my placement company, which I'm thrilled about.


    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Really good social scene, you're placed with like-minded roommates, and City Internships also host mixers and events that help you socilise with other interns on the program.


  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • I was placed in New York, so I went in with the mind-set that it was going to be expensive so when I arrived I wasn't suprised, it was however managable.


  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Amazing! somethign for everyone.


  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • Lots of opportunities, City Internships took us on weekends away, and hosted 2 events every week.
