  1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  2. I enjoyed my time at SAP thoroughly. The opportunity to get involved with real work from the very first week was a great contributing factor in my personal development. By spending a year at SAP, I had the chance to work very closely with both the senior leadership and the different sub teams within the sales team. This has boosted my team work ability and interpersonal skills greatly. Finally, the opportunity to get involved in different initiatives that the placement team organises is another way I had built my sales profile within the company.
