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

The fact that we was exposed to so many members of staff and also senior members made me feel important to the company. Plus, talking about future leaders programs and seeing how previous interns and grad scheme participants have climber the corporate ladder gave clear indication of our importance.


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

Everyone was extremely helpful, even during assessment center support and guidance was great. There was a sense of discussion rather than more formal interview styles.


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

Practising assessment centres this early will give us confidence and experience for the future. Plus networking with senior members helped break down common barriers in situations where you can sometimes feel slightly inferior.
