The Role

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

A few weeks in once you started getting more work the internship got a lot more enjoyable. Would probably be better if there was some initial stuff to do planned for those first few weeks

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

A good amount of what I did was directly for a client and this gave a feeling of responsibility.

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

While the software I was largely using was more specific to this area of work and isnt something relevant for use in uni some of the skills i picked up working in google scripts will likely benefit me when i go back to working with other coding langauges

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Office had a really great atmosphere. Really felt like you could approach anyone if you knew they had experience in the area you needed help with. Extremely friendly bunch of people

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

There wasnt initially much for us to do and therefore it took a few weeks before we started getting work as the teams we were put with started to use us more

5/10

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

Had number of different training workshops on various bits of software. Probably got the most personal development through my work with google scripts but that was more of a time investment with being allowed enough time to get to grips with things

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • There were no perks with this Internship
