1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I enjoyed my placement year with my team. Even though there were lots of changes, I enjoyed with most people that I worked with.


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

My colleagues were lovely. We sometimes had a private conversation during lunch. We also had a great time at work!


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

We had two weeks of training when we first joined. It was valuable especially when we had no idea of the company. Also, there are a lot of pieces of training for a whole year. I can say SAP is a company that definitely placement students can learn proper work experience.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was busy when we prepare for the events. I had to organise and promote all the events starting from managing registrations and ordering merchandise. Overall, I was busy when there were planned events but wasn't too busy on a daily basis.


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

I had to take responsibility for reports, logistics and events. Events are quite important for us due to facing customers and brand awareness. Therefore, I was taking a role which requires a high expectation.


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

I developed business skills that students cannot learn from the university. My role was highly relevant, and I believe my work experience definitely will assist my degree studies and beyond my future career!


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

It is very busy at the end of the quarter due to sales team closing deals and every Monday. However, many employees work from home, so the office is not really busy in rest of the days.


8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

It is very organised. So many people get involved to manage all interns. Recruitment, HR and Education teams spend much time on managing interns.


9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

They invested us to train ourselves building our personal brands such as how to run social media and networking.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • National Travel
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Above 25 days holiday
  • Working from home

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

SAP has trained so many interns past years and they tend to come back work for SAP after their university graduation. All interns are the potential human resources at SAP in the near future.



12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

The most memorable social was the Christmas party. We booked a fancy restaurant with a bar for the whole employees and had a course menu.


13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

There is nothing around the SAP office but SAP subsidiaries lunch for every employee, so it's not very expensive living and socialising in this area.


14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

SAP is located in Feltham but since there is nothing much nightlife in Feltham, we usually go to Richmond to social.


15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Yes definitely. I had many chances to go to other offices in London. As I manage the events, I had several opportunities to go off-site.
