    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • At SAP placement year students are thrown in from the beginning. You are not treated like an intern and you get given responsibilities straight away. The exposure interns have allow them to take responsibility early on and add value to their teams.

    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • I have enjoyed the experience on the whole but would be lying to say it's all roses. It's equally as challenging as rewarding. I have enjoyed the exposure and experience of working in a large organisation. Networking and building relationships with people I would not normally meet has improved my confidence for which I'm grateful. On the other hand, it can be easy to get overwhelmed with the nature of the environment.
