The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I really enjoyed my internship overall, while it was challenging, it was a great learning experience.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

At first I was really surprised by how important the work we were given was and I found myself very happy to quickly be involved in real deals.
After the mock case study and my poor performance I somehow felt that people doubted my skills (which was legitimate) and that was harder.
