I have both learnt and developed a range of skills during my placement at SAP. Most notably, I have become more confident in my use of excel, using technical skills such as this daily in my role. I have also improved my presentation skills, frequently presenting reports to managers whilst also improving my analytical skills too, analyzing sales reports and data daily in my role.
My main responsibility in my role was to run and maintain my teams forecasting file, which included sales data for the whole quarter. Moreover, I was also given the responsibility of presenting this at times to managers. Other responsibilities included liaising with customers in the customer success department and supporting my team in account planning meetings through taking notes.
I received a lot of support and guidance from the previous intern before me when being trained during the first month of my placement. I also received support from some members of my team too.
The company culture was very welcoming and kind. Unfortunately I was not able to experience office atmosphere due to the pandemic.
Overall I enjoyed my placement and have learnt so many new skills. I have also made great connections and have massively increased my knowledge of the software industry.
Make sure you are passionate about software and the role you are applying for. There are a range of opportunities when joining SAP so make the most of them all!
