    The Company

    4/5

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I think it is very good for an insight day. With close to 70 attendees, the reimbursement of transport cost is not low. Plus there are costs to refreshments, wine, and hiring an employer communication agency. Many division heads and chief executives attended.

    4/5

  • 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?
  • We got the opportunities to talk to staff to give insight of a typical day. They all tried to give information - one is more keen about her work; the other is more keen about giving information on application.

    4/5

  • I can get a feeling of the company culture that it wanted to project.

  • There is a facebook page of all the attendees.

    5/5
