, but one of the area within the company was poorly explained by the employee (didn't attend)

Very very useful interview tips and explanation of the recruitment stages both within the company and on a general basis


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Very well structured, well split up so as not blocky and boring rather it was a little bit snappier and very interesting


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Everyone was very happy and welcoming in the company and nobody seemed 'laboured' to talk to us


7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

Well obviously it was only a single day (hence the lower score) however on this day I felt very valued by the company


8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

It informed me about the different streams within the company very well so as I am more informed to make a decision as to which stream I may wish to peruse


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

kindly arranged for an employee to take us round the office so we could see a more detailed idea on how the company worked


10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

On helping me decide within BDO my career path it was very very helpful. However it didn't consider other businesses (obviously) this question i feel is a little vague for this application.


Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

No offer to pay me for expenses or my time however it was a voluntary day and I was not expecting anything in return so it was not a problem at all

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Yes, lunch with the employees and extensive questioning opportunities allowed us to network many times throughout the day


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Very good, everyone was happy to talk and helped to facilitate and spark conversation wherever needed


14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

The employees did briefly say some other aspects of the job along this line however it was by no mean a focus at any point


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

Yes! You get a great feel for the company and for what you like/don't like so you can make a better informed decision on your next steps to progression
