Responsibilities

3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?

You are given a lot of responsibility. You are responsible for making sure multiple territories meet each debut date. If you are late sending a trailer order, then this potentially has a domino effect on the whole operation, meaning territories can't make debut.
