2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

Employees at GS are very approachable and they were always willing to chat with me. They also always show interest in your background and experiences, which makes you feel that you are not one of the many interns at the firm.

10/10

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the virtual experience?

There was not a lot of guidance and that was because most sessions were not mandatory and the internship was virtual.

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

The employees that I have worked with always asked about my personal interest and background in order to assign tasks accordingly, which what makes GS very special. The firm is interested in you making the most out of the opportunities they offer. So always try to ask for tasks that you like and are interested in!

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the virtual experience?

Other than the few sessions that were assigned by the firm, everything else depend on you making the most out of it. For example, there were not many opportunities to network or ask questions, so it was the intern's responsibility to reach out to employees and ask them to meet virtually.

8. To what extent did the virtual experience help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

I got a better sense of the firm's culture as well as the various roles that different teams play but I did not get a GOOD understanding of what is it like there to work as full time employee since we could not rotate desks.

9. How much did the virtual experience help you in understanding the company culture?

A lot! Chatting with different employees and understanding their roles and their day to day activities was very helpful to get a better insight about GS work culture.

10/10

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

I got exposed mainly to the division that I was assigned in so I did not get the option of exploring other paths/careers/roles
