1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I have enjoyed aspects, for example, learning more about the world of work and learning many useful skills within Excel and other software and I have improved my communication skills. However, it was slighty to technilogical and I would have prefered to be Management Consultancy aligned.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

My team on both my projects were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I felt that whenever I was stuck, it was ok to ask questions and no one would judge. Everyone was very helpful.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

I was given loads of support, not only with my day to day job. But with the Management NVQ and technical certificate I completed. They reviewed everything where needed and were really supportive. On my second project, I even had a weekly meeting to discuss how I was getting along with meeting my objectives and what else I could to meet them - to go above and beyond.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

On my first project, I had little work and a reasonable amount of free time. However, on my second project my days were full and busy with work starting at 8.30 and finishing at 6. I felt like the second project was alot more fufilling.

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

On my first role, very little. However, on my second role I had daily tasks and deadlines that I was responsible for meeting and orders to get into 3rd party suppliers on certain days and I felt this role has really developed me as a person with the extra responsibility. I feel like it was an incredibly valuable experince.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

When I go to University next year, I think there are many skills which will benefit me, especially communication skills. These have improved greatly and I feel alot more confident talking, presenting and discussing which will help me greatly with my studies. I also was offered the chance to do the management NVQ and technical certificate which I am sure will benefit me greatly when applying for jobs and I can apply the skills learnt to situations at University as well.
