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

I learnt a lot about the general office environment and lifestyle as well as communicating with different levels of employees and asking for help. I think the core skills such as teamwork have been used in a different context alongside more technical knowledge.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The office atmosphere was great when the graduates were not at college. With fewer people in the office it was still fun but a bit quieter. But definately I enjoyed the atmosphere the most of all.

Social

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

Although only a small office the employees are very close knit and it was great to work in that environment where everybody knows each other. Again due to the size of the office there was only one other placement student who I spent a lot of time with which was great.
