  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • - Communicate with and present to team and stakeholders to push strategies - Develop and implement new methods


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I developed a solid range of skills, from data / programming to softer skills such as presentation and communication.

    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • Yes, I was given a lot of ownership of the projects assigned to me, as well as wider exposure to the various teams and business lines within the organisation. I never felt micromanaged which is another positive

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • The HR support was also great. Also had a very communicative manager and buddy so couldn't have had a much better experience in this regard. From conversations with other interns this may be quite team-dependent, though

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • Very friendly and casual, didn't feel intimidated asking anyone for a chat from any country. There can be some language barriers especially when communicating with the China teams but as a whole people tend to try and work to get around these.

  • 4/5

  • 7. Would you recommend TikTok to a friend?
  • Yes


  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to TikTok
  • Do be prepared to be independent and self-driven. Being so new as a company, processes aren't necessarily as defined (and rigid) as they are in other companies so even as a new entrant you have a chance to make your mark, an opportunity to make the most of early in your career
