Simply put it was a pathway into the world of telecommunication. I enjoyed it very much; the company's approach to their marketing strategies and their ambition to be the leading wireless communication enterprise really opened my eyes to this industry. The potential found in future communication is huge and I'm glad I chose this route. The experience I gained and my time with Vodafone has helped me realize that I want to be a part of this growing sector which has great potential for the future.
Vodafone has had a long-standing motto that greatly shows to what extent the company values it's customers and employees: "power to you". That's exactly how I felt during my time at the company. Vodafone made me feel like I had power to create new ideas and broaden my horizons. They encouraged all their staff to take initiative and be the best versions of themselves. Ultimately a work environment such as this is the reason Vodafone has had continued success in Mobile technology.
During my initial introduction period, I was assigned a mentor or adviser who would be there to answer any queries and teach me the basics of the job. Although I had no problems settling in and didn't require much guidance after the first few days, the company representative still made me feel very welcome and always offered any assistance in more challenging tasks.
I believe that now I have a much better understanding of the extent to which telecommunication affects society and how technology can help bring people together. Policymakers are focused on harnessing the socio-economic benefits that digital infrastructure can deliver and Vodafone has taught me or at least given me a more deeper understanding of how technology can be used for the betterment of society. These skills will help me to a great extent in the career I will pursue.
The structure of the insight was very well planned out. Punctuality was key and everything was done in a well-timed manner. After the introduction period, we were given assignments and deadlines which helped us to keep motivated and focused. The team held briefings and end of day meetings to help maintain structure and keep us updated on the tasks. Everyone was very supportive and I felt that everything was well organized from start to finish.
The general atmosphere during my insight was stimulating and exciting. Each day there was something new to learn and discover. Mobile technology is playing an important role in addressing some of society's most complex challenges from access to health care and education to the empowerment of women and tackling climate change. Despite the seriousness of these dilemmas that we face in the future, the working environment at Vodafone only strived to create the best atmosphere for its workforce so we could come up with the best solutions possible.
I felt that the company was invested in me to a large extent even though I wasn't one of their permanent employees. I was treated the same as everyone else and felt part of the whole team. The company helped me develop my communication skills and taught me a great deal about the tech world.
It pretty much felt like a real job to me and I was given plenty of information to help me understand what it would mean to have a full-time role with Vodafone. I was told about the work dynamic in the company, its different roles and all the opportunities that were available if i chose to work with them in the future.
It helped me a lot. During my time I made many friends and spoke deeply with many colleagues about their time at Vodafone and their thoughts about the company culture. Everyone assured me that they enjoyed their jobs and would highly recommend a career at Vodafone if that was my ambition.
Very valuable and I would take many such opportunities to gain knowledge and help me choose a career.
There were free snacks and drinks and lunch was offered by the company.
Certainly, there were many opportunities.
They had a fun vibe and very beneficial in making new connections.
Some employees mentioned outside activities that were organized by the company once in a while.
