    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • The internship was very well organised, with multiple events to meet other interns even though it was virtual. Moreover, the first two weeks of training were also highly interactive and the group work allowed us to meet people from other teams too. The weekly virtual drinks organised by the grad team also make the experience a bit better and again are a good way to meet your fellow interns in a more informal, casual meeting.

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Throughout the training, we were given calendars and constant ways of getting in touch with the teacher in case we had further questions and needed support. During the working weeks, the whole team was always very approachable. The fact that the team was also relatively small made it easier to get in touch with more senior members too and hear their opinions, advice and answers to any questions you might have. Any feedback was also always constructive.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • During the first weeks of training the workload was very manageable. During the working weeks, the workload was not too high (probably due to the summer vacations) but there was definitely enough time to balance work and the internship projects. However the last couple of days were a lot less busy once the project had been presented.

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Due to compliance, we weren't allowed to work on live deals from home, however we were involved in a lot of marketing material. Working with a small team also meant more responsibilities from the go which was very much appreciated

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Very mucho so, especially the first weeks of training offered by the internship

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Since it was virtual, we didn't get to fully experience the office atmosphere but there seemed to be a lot of complicity between teammates at least virtually.

    5/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • Very well organised. From the training to the presentation and other meeting everything was properly scheduled and we knew in advance what we were expected to attend and when.

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • Amongst fellow interns there was a very good atmosphere. Especially during the first weeks of training we all had a lot of fun. Then during the working weeks the atmosphere continued to be pretty good. We still saw each other at least once per week and sometimes between inters of the same team we organised calls to catch up. Although it is more difficult to keep in touch over a virtual background we all managed to do so in general.

    5/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
