    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • The internship course in relation to the company was good. I did not enjoy my role and I have been managed very poorly.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • My manager did not respect me and has acted unprofessional towards me on several occasions. However I did get on with various other colleagues who appreciated me.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • I felt like I had very little, if not no support and guidance from my manager.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • It varied every day, and as our team grew I became less busy, which was good. At the start of my placement I felt very overwhelmed.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Very little, my role hasn't really developed since I started


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Although I received very little training, I believe I can deal with difficult situations at work well and I have learnt a lot bout the working environment. I also feel like my organisation and prioritizing skills have improved immensely.
