    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • This was the area in which the placement lacked the most. I never received an updated training plan and on a regular basis did not know when I was even working until the night before. There was support from my mentor daily for anything emotional if I needed it. But there was a lack of personnel development support (this may be by nature but at times think more information or guidance could have been relayed regarding future events or basic details).

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • Thoroughly enjoyed my placement and the opportunities that I was given have been so rewarding. I hope to receive an offer back, but if I do not I have definitely not wasted my time and have developed myself so much. I honestly feel like I have had a positive impact upon the company.
