    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?
  • Friendly people with so much to tell about each role, which made the experience interesting and fun as it was clear the people at Mace enjoyed their job.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • This was one of the best parts, I was made to feel apart of the team already and that they really wanted me there.


  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the virtual experience?
  • Lots, all my questions were answered.


  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • My confidence in myself was built so much because of the people at Mace, as well as learning a lot of technical terms and further information about certain roles which makes my career choice easier.


    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the virtual experience?
  • Amazing, it was clearly thought out. There were enough breaks but I also didn’t feel overly relaxed (as if I didn’t need to work hard) - so it was a good mixture.


  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your virtual experience?
  • Great, everyone seemed passionate and interested. I liked having our cameras on as I could see how everyone else was feeling too and made me feel less alone.


  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • Completely invested in me, it wasn’t just about Mace it was also about the skills needed as an employee. One thing I noticed is how much they helped to boost my confidence throughout this week


  • 8. To what extent did the virtual experience help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • I think the week helped me understand the roles better but to understand them on a day to day basis I think you would need to experience this in real life not virtually.


  • 9. How much did the virtual experience help you in understanding the company culture?
  • Really well because all staff were from different backgrounds, different ages and different genders so I could see the diversity throughout Mace.


  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • Very valuable, without Mace my choice in civil engineering wouldn’t have been reinforced as strongly


    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • Although if it had taken place in London, Mace would have reimbursed my expenses.

  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • 5/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • 5/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • 3/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this virtual experience to a friend?
  • 100%, anyone who is interested in a career in construction - this week is super informative and makes the industry seem a lot less scary.
