  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I was given a great amount of responsibility after the first 6 months of my placement when i became very confident in my role. I had control over our affiliate revenue with little guidance from my manager and input data as well as updating it with any deal renewals from our customers. I was given responsibility of reconciling month end actuals with our own forecasts and creating a monthly dashboard for senior leadership.
