About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

The insight was invaluable to my acquisition of, generally, a greater level of knowledge relating to the functions performed by KPMG and also the culture and values of the firm itself. It was well-run and extremely enjoyable - especially considering that it was the inaugural programme which was definitely spectacular.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I felt completely valued and engaged throughout the week. No qualms.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

A great amount of guidance and support was received throughout the week and I particularly appreciated the speaker sessions, work carousel and development sessions which took place.


4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Certainly, they will help me to focus on an root out what my core skills are which will allow me to pursue a career which best suits my character traits and ability set.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Wonderfully well structured. We were always busy and there was never a moment which felt unproductive.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Spectacular, all of the other participants were engaged and inquisitive. Not to mention the speakers who came with a genuine enthusiasm and passion to teach and disseminate knowledge of their journeys.


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

As much as was possible within one week, we were given resources and insights which will support us to make the best career decisions possible. Moreover, there was a clear, and invaluable, emphasis on personal branding and interview skills training.


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 helped a lot, particularly where the work carousel and speaker sessions are concerned.


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

Immensely, right from the outset, lessons on company culture was a running motif throughout the duration of the insight program.


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

nigh-inexplicably valuable, the knowledge and histories of the speakers helped me put my own journey into perspective, such that I might make a broader consideration of the options which are available to someone of my (internship) experience and skill set.

Great surprise.

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

Very good and, as with the entire week itself, well-organised.


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

Yes, we received a talk from Corporate Social Responsibility which was important.


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

Without any shadow of a doubt. I am sure that the program will go from strength-to-strength in the coming years.
