    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • The work I was given was often repetitive and boring. This could have been completed by anyone and did not utilise my skills or insight as an undergrad. There was little information provided that was relevant to the role I ended up doing for the year, if accurately described I may not have applied. This role has made me hesitant to apply for any more work within recruitment in the future, or indeed any similar graduate programs.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • On the whole I was given a large amount of respect from my peers who all valued me equally. It was often forgotten that I would only be there for a year, which was lovely. However the work I was set allowed little room for growth and development and was not conducive to further learning.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • 5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • 1/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • 2/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • 2/5

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Whilst my team were friendly and warm. Different teams often felt separate and would only chat if you needed to work with them.


  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • 3/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I was given basic training to complete my role. Whilst I was included in training sessions they were often not targeted to my work.


  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • 1/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • I want to work in a completely different role and would never work in recruitment again.


    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • 1/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • 2/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • 3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • We had one team night out in 12 months.
