2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
I got on fantastically with my team and we bonded well. I was sad to leave them at the end of my internship. I felt I added value to the office through the tasks I completed for them, however the work completed could've been more complex and less menial in order to feel truly like an equal with my colleagues
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
Support from the central internship management team was second to none. In the office the support was lacking at first which meant I had to create good connections with those in my team in order to get the support I needed. But this is normal for any working environment and is part of the journey of an intern.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
At first I wasn't busy at all and I had to ask for work and find ways to occupy myself. I wish I had been given more actual tasks and projects in the beginning as this led to me not enjoying the first few weeks massively. Nearer the end I was a lot busier however I feel like I expected more work from an internship at HSBC.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
I was left unsupervised to complete most of my work and I had a lot of interaction with clients and key stakeholders
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
I developed time management skills, a stronger work ethic, motivation, self confidence
