    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I really enjoyed my placement year at Samsung. I had the opportunity to learn many business skills as well as soft skills. Also, I was able to expand my interests across different departments and with different people.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Working in Samsung Europe Office was a very important experience for me as I was able to work with people coming from different backgrounds than mine, but that they were still able to understand me and value me. Also, after a few months in the business, the team really started treating me as part of a family. I was able to discuss with my colleagues both work-related and life matters.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Both HR and my manager have been supporting and guiding me during the whole process. The training, as well as the mentoring that Samsung has offered me, has been fantastic.

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • After just few months in the business, my team was already treating me as a normal member. My manager trusted me and he gave me different important tasks that were relevant to the performance of the business. I was also asked to use my creativity and my imagination to bring value to the business.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I am 100% confident that the skills I have trained and developed during my 12 months in Samsung, won't just help me in my degree studies, but also in my future career.
