2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
It depended what team you were with at the time. When you're with sales the people they have a lot more time on their hands so are willing to give you their time for any questions you may have. If you're in analytics you can tell there is more pressure for them to be concentrated all the time. In the analytics department they still answer your questions and are friendly but have less time than sales/
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
In the Sales department the support and guidance I received from my manager was very extensive. He always made sure I knew what I was doing and encouraged me to participate in all areas of the business.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
In the sales department the projects were on a week to week basis so how busy you were depended on what you had to do. The projects varied from calling to prospecting
In the analytics department we spent most of our time calling terminal users carrying out calling campaigns.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
We were given a lot of responsibility from the first day. We were placed on the phone calling clients from the start of the internship and placed on projects that made a difference.
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
On this internship I have developed an array of skills. Among them my presentation skills, critical thinking and working skills.
