    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • I gained a close relationship with my manager who assured me early on that my purpose in the company was to learn so no question was silly (and I asked a lot of questions). I was given a 'buddy' for the first couple months who would check in every week to see how I was doing more personally.

    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • I've loved it. Towards the end (due to less restrictions) I've been able to attend in-person events and be with my colleagues more casually which was a highlight of my placement. Company culture and benefits made me excited for a future of work which I was previously dubious about.

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

  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to Pfizer
  • You will learn so much about business, even if you are not in a business part of the company. That being said, there is no pressure to come fully knowledgeable to your placement, just try to absorb as much information from your colleagues as possible. The applications are highly important to hiring managers - take it seriously and read the job description!
