4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

It varied day-to-day - but I was never bored! Some days I did have to stay considerably later than I expected to just to get everything done but this was rare.

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

With specific tasks, I had sole responsibility to plan, deliver and present work. Within the regular reporting, this was more of a team effort.

The Excel training week was brilliant and so helpful.
I think the development of my networking skills will help me beyond this internship the most.
