  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Within this particular role there were multiple daily tasks that were required to be completed. The daily orderbook would have to completed everyday, on particular days of the week orderbooks for some of the associated distributors were also completed. Monthly reports were carried out throughout the week alongside handling any customer enquiries and creating quotations for customers. With regards to the marketing role, I had to ensure that both the website and datasheets were updated.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Throughout this placement role I have developed my skills in using Microsoft Excel, as this programme is used for almost every task required within this job role. Previous to starting this placement I had not heard of the SAP programme, after completing my placement I have a better understanding of this particular programme which is a vital programme that is utilised around the world.

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I was given a lot of responsibility throughout my placement, this was shown by me completing quotations, monthly reports and managing the Bicon Components Website individually. Of course when required, there was help available from colleagues who were happy to provide assistance where they could. Furthermore, attending the two exhibitions throughout the year with a few colleagues was another demonstration of responsibility given to me throughout my placement.

Also the opportunity to attend large exhibitions and represent the company was also a great experience.
