  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • Yes I was, I think this was one of the most pleasantly surprising things about the placement and a factor that I enjoyed the most. I was, at times, fully responsible for the amazon account and for various larger scale projects that I had developed the ideas for. This level of freedom gave me a great sense of accomplishment.

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
