    7/10

  3. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  4. As it was online there was a lot less of a personal feel however they did try to make a few stuff interactive

    6/10

  5. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  6. There was enough guidance to get through everything planned for us however, again, as it was a virtual insight there was not a lot of support and guidance neccessary apart from how to use zoom really

    5/10

  7. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  8. Some important pieces of advice for assessment centres and key skills that they look for. Brief insight into commercial banking/ chosen field.

    6/10

  9. How well structured was the insight?
  10. Well structured week. However, it was only roughly 2 hours each day for three days so maybe it could've been condensed into 1 or 2 days instead.

    7/10

  11. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  12. Hard to interact with people on zoom especially as a group and lost it's personal feel. Maybe it would be nice to try and have a one to one talk with some people working at the NatWest group anf some other interns

    4/10

  13. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  14. Not much personal training as well never actually got to participate in any work that we would have to do as it was virtual. However, there was development of professional skills and using zoom to interact with people

    5/10

  15. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  16. Had graduates speak to us in our chosen field which was nice as it was easier to relate to them and they told us the sort of stuff the started out doing and about their progression

    7/10

  17. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  18. Lots of information about the culture of the company and it's purpose, the charity work it does and the role they play in improving society

    8/10

  19. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  20. As you only got a very brief insight into your field with no hands on work it was difficult to tell wether they career path would be for you or in any other career paths would be better

    5/10

  21. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  22. No expenses and reimbursements and it was online and virtual


  23. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  24. Not much of a chance to network and meet people as it was online. Maybe there should have been some group work to make us all involved more and a chance to speak to people one on one

    3/10

  25. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  26. Didn't have many opportunities to network as it was virtual

  31. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
