    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • Yes, I have. my manager gradually increased my responsibility instead of overwhelming me from the beginning. This way I was slowly able to adapt to the company and how things are done but also gained more knowledge as was able to work as proper employee at the end of my internship. I took initiative about the styles me and my manager worked on and she only helped when I got stuck and needed help.

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • I honestly received all the guidance and help I needed. I discovered I was struggling in particular field and approached people to suggest the best person to coach me in this issue and then I took advantage of the valuable coaching sessions which helped me enormously throughout my internship. No one ever rejected when I needed help and my manager even helped beforehand me asking for help in fields that she already knew I wasn't so experienced.
