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

I was responsible for five types of reports that were due in different time frames. They were my tasks alone, and it was a great chance to learn responsibility in the workplace.

The skills I learnt from my placement are priceless - they are exactly what I need to be able to enter the finance world.
