4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I think it was during quiet season so therefore sometimes we were looking for extra work and asking round. If you went to ask for work people always did have things for you to do however.

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

More than I expected anyway! I thought we would be working on fictional clients but we actually got to work with real clients.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

I think they managed to maintain a good balance, the atmosphere wasn't relaxed but it wasn't.

5/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

Again, I think due to quiet season, it was difficult for people to find work for us, this could be organised better.

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

The company put so much money into us. Firstly by taking us down to a hotel for a few days to meet and network with other students, then by spending time training us.

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Was offered and able to defer until 2013.

10/10

Social

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

Lots of entire office socials, but there were only 3 of us on the scheme and therefore we got to know each other well but we wouldn't be able to fill a party.

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Edinburgh is pretty expensive for living

5/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Nightlife is great and having been a student in Edinburgh I know all the good place to go.

8/10

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

We were given a Deloitte task outside work which we were able to take part in. Apart from that not much.
