I have developed so many of my skills and been able to learn many new ones that I will be able to use on my journey.
I was giving a lot of responsibility during my placement. I was running my own projects and being able to find different projects I wanted to be a part of. I was also giving the freedom to complete tasks by myself and develop skills with support being on hand if i needed it.
I had 3 managers I was working with and some provided more support than others but i did feel as though I had someone a least I could go to about any problems or issues.
The IBM culture is amazing, everyone is extremely nice and willing to support and help you on your journey.
I enjoyed my placement a lot at times it was hard but i pushed through. I do wish it wasn't all online but that was not due IBM but the current life circumstance.
Let them get to know you and don't be shy to ask for what you want
