The internship went by pretty quickly. It began with an induction and training week where we took part in fun ice-breakers as well as training. This included working for a client on a case study and an excel course. During the rest of the internship, as well as work, there were different socials after-work with the team and we got to see all the other interns every Friday. The work got better as we progressed since we learnt more and more.
