3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

My manager was so helpful, providing me support and guidance whenever necessary. She was also able to find ways to accommodate my individual learning style by adapting the work load and the way I was taught certain tasks. This really made me feel valued and allowed me to learn at my own pace.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

In HR, work load changes depending on the demand of the business. Some days there are quieter days than others, but there is always something to do or someone to help. Team members will always be willing to pull you into their work if you ever feel like you don't have anything to do.

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

I was given large amounts of responsibility, with multiple projects solely my responsibility. At first this is daunting, but there will always be someone to help you if ever you feel like you are getting overwhelmed. The responsibility I was given massively boost the confidence I have in my own abilities.
