    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I have enjoyed my placement very thoroughly. During the year, I have gained valuable experience in the new technologies such us the MERN stack. Clock's active involvement in the development of my skills has made me a better developer.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I have always felt extremely valued by my colleagues.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • I have always felt supported by my manager as well as by all the other colleagues.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • I would say working at Clock offers you that perfect work-life balance. Every Monday I was informed about the current week's schedule. I have never felt overwhelmed nor underwhelmed by the number of tasks given to me.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Before I have started my placement year I was worried I won't be involved in any serious projects. I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised by Clock because ever since the first month, I was involved in implementing new features for one of the main clients at that time. Over time as my experience grew, I was given my own new project that I have worked on along one senior software engineer.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • All the skills I have learned during my placement year will have a significant impact on my studies, my professional life as well as my life in general. Coming back to the University now, I feel much more confident. Having a real-life industry experience will make my final year at the University much easier.


    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Everyone was always kind and happy to help. A very fun environment to work in.
