    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I think this time period was generally fairly quiet for the team, so it was not overly busy. I was not given much responsibility, therefore, but I was still able to sit in on relevant meetings and gain some client exposure.
