    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • I found this very interesting as before I applied and took part in the insight programme I didn't really know what all the specific areas where. This insight has meant that I am closer to knowing what area of real estate that I would like to work in. It also amazed me how diverse the range of roles available are.

    Your Impressions

  • 5. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I really enjoyed the insight, it was definitely different having it online but I do think that it was the best that it could be.

It was also nice to learn about the APC as I now understand what it entails.
