    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • All the enjoyable aspects of the internship for me came after I moved teams.

    3/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I didn't feel as though my colleagues tried to include/integrate me into the team, meaning I often felt like an outsider. I was grateful to have been able to move teams, where I did feel more valued.

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • 1/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Towards the end of my time, I felt almost as though my team had forgotten they had an intern as I was given almost nothing to do by my team. I was mostly kept busy by working on an intern group project.

    3/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • My tasks were very low importance and mostly administrative, but admittedly there was also limited opportunity for me to have massive responsibilities in my role.

    1/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • My work relied on skills developed during studies (time management, written communication, etc) rather than vice versa. I learnt very little about the role or the ins and outs of my department and therefore there's not much to be applied to the future beyond a general awareness of office culture and office life.

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • My original team were very close between themselves, but I felt like an outsider and I didn't feel as though there was a genuine effort to include me. However, the atmosphere in my new team was absolutely lovely.

    1/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • There was a mentorship programme, but only began around halfway through the programme. Socials for interns were supposed to be roughly fortnightly, but was organised only in the last week.
