The Role

Role Description

My compenency was in Technology consulting. I was based at the client site throughout which was quite unusual but I enjoyed it because it let me see first hand consultant/client interaction. My role involved contributing to reports, slide decks and preparing for workshop days in which the consultants and clients discussed problems in the company and possible solutions.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

Not all that I was expecting. Some days were intense and busy, others more chilled out.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Extremely supportive atmosphere. Despite being extremely busy, my manager sat down on more than one occasion with me to discuss any questions I had about the company and my prospects.

10/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Very stop/start. Compared to revising for university finals I found the pace slow and I was often bored.

3/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

A lot of responsibility given to me to produce client-ready documents and Power Point slide decks. I was absoutely made to feel a valuable part of the team.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Some life skills, but not relevant to my degree (engineering) despite being involved in the "Technology" competency of consultancy.

5/10

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

The placement was not what I suspected so I decided not to go for a graduate role- I decided I wanted something more relevant to my degree (engineering).

1/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Many social events organised which were fun and informal. Also a team-building day at the very beginning meant we have all ended up as good friends!

10/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

I stayed with family so lived for free. Food and drink not as expensive as I had feared in London.

5/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Only went for drinks after work but it was vibrant and buzzing!

8/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Not enough was done to make us aware of activities outside of work, if there were any.
