  1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  2. For me personally, I loved the year in IBM, I have so much flexibility in what I want to do and being offered amazing oppertunity to take the same roles as any other graduates.


  3. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  4. Very Much. In my working environment, no one treated me down because I am an intern.


  5. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  6. 7 purely for the amazing mentor I had. But for the technical skills development, not much. To be fair, the best way for you to gain respect is that you have expertise in your subject matter, in whatever positions you are in.


  7. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  8. Varies. Can be busy to death, can be quite relaxing. Depending on the project as well as your role.


  9. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  10. I have given full responsibility as a consultant. But depends on the PM, I have enountered a PM who doesn't fancy me talking to the client much.


  11. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  12. Quite a lot. I have gained so much professionalism from this one year experience.


  13. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  14. Mine is so much fun. But I heard for some other area is not fun...


  15. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  16. Not much for me, but thats the fun part, you can design your own journey. Again, I know some interns are doing a very structured role. It varies.


  17. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  18. Far less than graduates. lol


  19. What were the perks on your work placement?
  20. Flexi Time

    Company Parties/Events

    Working from home


  21. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  22. Not so much for me. They could have been more honest about the VISA upfront.
    Saying "we offer VISA" when you consult them in the career fair and later in the day you discovered that they offered LESS THAN 5 VISAs last year.


  23. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  24. I am a bit introvert, after work, I just want to go home.


  25. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  26. London is expensive!


  27. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  28. there are some, but i am not a party animal.


  29. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  30. Yeah, quite a lot of events happening.


  31. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
