  1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  2. I really enjoyed my placement at SAP. During the past 13 months, I've learned a lot of new things and I can already see what a great impact the placement had on my personal growth and development.


  3. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  4. My close team and colleagues were really friendly and supportive. I felt as a valued team member because I was given responsibilities such as providing the senior management with daily and weekly reporting.


  5. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  6. My manager was very supportive and always found some time to answer my questions and address any concerns. He also gave me the opportunity to see and be involved in the different parts of the business apart from my own role.


  7. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  8. On a daily basis, my workload was quite well balanced if nothing unusual happened. As a sales ops intern, my workload got busier the closer to the end of the quarter we were. However, there were plenty of opportunities to get involved if I was not busy.


  9. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  10. As mentioned above, I was given the responsibility to create weekly and daily reports for the senior management of the European region. Apart from that, I had to deal with some ad hoc tasks that usually played an essential part in the deal support process.


  11. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  12. The skills I developed during my placement will surely help me to be a more productive and effective individual at university. I learned a lot about Excel and its VBA which helped me to streamline some of my processes. I also developed better business communication skills as well as time management skills.


  13. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  14. The general atmosphere in the office was usually relaxed and friendly. I never had a bad feeling of being there and it is mostly because of the people I worked with who were just great!


  15. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  16. I must say that the placement could not be organized better. We had a really supportive SteerCo which provided us with a month of insightful onboarding activities as well as general support and ad hoc activities for us to take part in during the placement.


  17. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  18. There are plenty of online and offline training resources you can access while on placement. Apart from that, the company makes sure you are well trained for your particular role. So, I would say the company invests in you a lot but at the end of the day, it's up to you if you want to develop yourself.


  19. What were the perks on your work placement?
  20. Flexi Time

    Subsidised Canteen

    Subsidised/Company Gym

    Company Parties/Events

    Staff Sales/Staff Shop

    Working from home


  21. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  22. Depending on how the current COVID-19 situation evolves. But generally, the future employment prospects are quite high.


  23. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  24. The placement cohort were a great bunch and I think we had a lot of fun.


  25. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  26. The cost of living was London like, what can you expect? But socializing was great, as we had a lot of places we could go to in London.


  27. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  28. I wouldn't say there is any nightlife in the area I worked in as it is nearby an airport and just residential. Usually, you wouldn't want to stroll around alone at night. But the train to London was just around the corner and you could go there.


  29. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  30. SAP provides many opportunities for employees to get involved in activities outside of work. You can take part in activities such as Volunteering, Green Team, Cultures Team, or Football games with colleagues.


  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?
