    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the 16 months I spent at The Walt Disney Company, working in Digital Marketing. It was a dream internship come true.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I felt all of my opinions and ideas were encouraged and valued by my colleagues. Interns play a vital part at The Walt Disney Company and are provided with many responsibilities. I felt that my team trusted in my abilities and pushed me to continue to develop my skills and knowledge.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • The support I had from my managers and supervisors was excellent. I always felt comfortable asking questions or for help if I needed it throughout the placement. My team always encouraged me to take on new tasks and responsibilities which I really enjoyed, and allowed me to expand on areas that I really enjoyed or wanted to learn more about.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • I was always busy which was what I loved. I loved always having tasks to complete so I wasn't bored and I never really felt overwhelmed. However, there were some times around big marketing campaigns where the whole team was super busy. These were great experiences to learn how to cope under these circumstances and were part of the job.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I was given loads of responsibility during my placement. I managed projects, played a vital part in many campaigns and strategies, as well as my ideas and creations coming to life.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The skills I learnt during my first two years at University were very helpful during my placement. Furthermore, the valuable real-life experience has certainly helped me in my final year so far.


    The Company

  • It was very professional but there were always events and activities going on.


  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

    The Culture
