    About You

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  • I enjoyed working with Katya, Melissa and the rest of the team. It was enjoyable being able to talk to the prospective students and see what and where they would like to study, especially as I could give my opinions on university. Being friendly like this helped me to successfully sign up many people to the campaign.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  • The three of us worked well as a team with the ipads and ipods and we helped each other out a lot by always being on the look out if one team member needed another ipod/ipad for the group they were dealing with.


  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?
  • Chantelle was in touch frequently and Keith was very useful when it came to our technological blip!


  • 4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • My communication skills have increased with this job as I could give information and opinions from my time at university to these students. Also being able to work on my own while keeping an eye on the rest of my team has made me realise how to multitask on a job like this.


    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • It possibly could have been structured better as on the second day it rained but many of the students were still queuing outside and as we didn't want to block the aisles inside, it was quite difficult to maneuver three iPods/iPads as well as an umbrella


  • 6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  • Very friendly and enjoyable! It was easy to discuss and problems and come up with solutions.


  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • Chantelle was very informative of what we had to do both by phone and email before and during the event,


  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • The team I worked with were very helpful and fun


  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • By employing such a fun and helpful team who made working the event so enjoyable, it was difficult to believe the rest of the company would not be the same.


  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • 3/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • £8/hr +incentives both individual and as a team made this event more enjoyable to work as it added a fun competition both between our team's members and the thought of us competing with other teams across the country.

  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • I met the other employees in my team


  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • As we only worked four hours per day there was not a lot of time to organise or attend networking or social events.


  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • As we only worked four hours per day there was not a lot of time to find out more about outide-of-work activities as we were mostly trying to hit our target figures.


  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • It was a great few days of work that introduced me to new people and increased my pre-existing communication skills while developing some others
