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

Inevitably, as a summer scheme intern - your knowledge is pretty limited in terms of what you can actually contribute towards a totally knew sector of the market but overall, I hope that my team valued some of my contribution

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

My mentor was great and always happy to offer advice and the rest of my team were very supportive and helpful.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

On some days busier than others but that was to be expected when doing an internship for a large busy firm where other people have their own jobs to be getting on with.
5 /5

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

I felt that we were given adequate responsibility for our skills set and market knowledge. When submersing yourself in a totally new field, it can be quite daunting due to the lack of market knowledge but post doing your APC, clearly you will me in a much more informed position.

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

Any exposure to industry and what you might be doing in your career is invaluable and I felt that whilst the tasks were limited due to our lack on knowledge, it was great to get an understanding of what the day to day tasks involve as a junior surveyor and to help the more junior members of the team with any tasks that might be useful to them.
