2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

I felt extremely valued by my colleagues. I was trusted by senior VP's in the company to produce and present work which contributed to the team. I received feedback throughout and was taken to senior board meetings and trusted to represent our brand well. I could not thank the team more for their support.

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

I was given great support by my managers. Our team was led by a Vice President who had been in the organization for many years. He shared knowledge with me that I will use for many years to come and gave advice that has helped me choose my next steps.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I have been very busy on my placement. I essentially had two managers. A day to day job manager where most tasks were standard every week and we reported into the same management team. And my second manager was a part of the large deals team who received requests for support of which I helped her with.

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

I was given responsibility from day one. Each month we reported into the UK General Manager and each quarter we reported to the European General Manager. I helped created the decks that were used for these meetings and collected the collateral from other brands. Attention to detail was key and the team put a lot of trust into my ability to produce the work correctly.

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

I would one hundred percent say the skills I have developed with assist in future employment and life. I am not sure if they will help in my studies. I think the attention to detail will help and getting up at 6am every day will help too. The learning and approcach to business problems will give me different opinions to my class mates.
