The Role

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

I really enjoyed my internship. It was clearly there was a lot of effort put in. There were lots of social events, countless presentations and tech talks. My mentor also was amazing, he took very good care of me. Overall, I think it was an ideal internship, where I had fun, but I also learnt a lot.

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

My mentor was helping me everyday. We had meetings just between the 2 of us where he would either help me with my technical work or just answer general questions. I actually think I got too much help from him :). The team was also nice, they shared valuable advice.
