    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Our main job was to shadow the associates we were allotted, with the intention of assisting them with their work while learning on the job. This would involve sitting in on meetings, working on slide decks to edit them, researching on certain topics, working with excel spreadsheets or doing miscellaneous work like building websites for client use.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Absolutely. My confidence in conversation has gone up massively ever since I started interacting with people who had similar traits themselves. I became clearer in the way I spoke, and chose my words more carefully. I learnt new technical skills like Tableau and website design, and became more tech savvy in general. Lastly, I learnt how to be a team player.

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • A lot - in multiple forms. Whether it was my career coach, my buddy, the associate I was given to work shadow, or just anyone in the office - I could strike up a conversation with them and receive more knowledge and guidance than any google search would provide me.

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • Very friendly and open. You could talk to anyone about anything - you wouldn't need to be the smartest person in the room and people would understand that. They would be willing to help you achieve the best version of yourself, which I believe is an absolute positive when it comes to the first job you choose.

  • I honestly wish I could go back and relive those 6 weeks. It was one of the most fun and enlightening experiences of my life. The amount of knowledge I received in those 6 weeks was far beyond what I expected. Additionally, the interns were super cool and super fun to be around!
