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

From the very beginning, team members taught how to complete the task assigned but they let us try on our own to complete them. Therefore, we were given responsibilities from the start but we could always ask for the help of our colleagues. Over the internship, I felt that I gained more autonomy while working.
