2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
My colleagues supported and invested time and money into my development, always asking what I wanted at that moment and in the future to further develop my self.
I was shocked about how much they respected my opinion and what tasks they relied upon me to complete.
Overall i believe I made an impact on the team.
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
I had weekly meetings with my manager and colleagues to ask about my development and what I would like to achieve next.
My manager pushed me every step of the way and always knew how much pressure to put onto me at any one time.
I ended up reaching all my goals during my year and have no regrets.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
My position had times where it was very quiet for a few days and then very busy the next.
Maybe it was good to have those breaks in between so i was able to focus on the next task at hand and how to develop my skills.
I did not feel like I wasted any time during my year.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
I was always asked for my opinion when it came to projects and maintenance of the lab.
Sometimes my tasks were time critical for projects to be completed, other times I had to complete standard admin tasks like inventory and logistics.
I was surprised how much i would be relied on during my internship.
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
I was able to complete two certifications during my time at Hewlett Packard Enterprise,
The ACSA (Aruba Certified Switching Associate) and the ACMP (Aruba Certified Mobility Professional), These certifications prove I am able to other employers and hopefully cement a role in Aruba in the future.
My skills were very well developed during the year.
