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

  3. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  4. I felt like I was able to make a real difference in a number of areas. It is a feedback oriented firm, so you get told when you've really helped out!

  15. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
