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

It was a great experience that really gave you a great insight into the industry and Bloomberg culture as a whole. Tasks were fun and varied and as well as the usual tasks we were given a range of extra projects with interns from other departments.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Extremely. Interns at Bloomberg are treated just like anyone else. We were dealing with clients on a daily basis and were given a lot of responsibility. Our work was actually benefiting our team.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

We were each assigned a mentor as well as having a joint business leader. My mentor was excellent and I was always encouraged to ask questions. As well as this, our business leader would follow up with us regularly to evaluate our progress and let us know what we were doing well as well as where we could improve.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

There were times when I was really busy as well as times when I wasn't so busy but I would encourage people to get involved as many things as possible and always ask for things to do. Shadowing other departments was always good to do on less busy days. This allowed you to learn about other departments and get an overall view of how the company works as a whole.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

We were given a good amount of responsibility. I was dealing daily with large clients as well as brand new ones and was trusted with this.

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

I have finished uni but I have been offered a full-time position at Bloomberg, therefore these skills have been vital.

Social

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Quite expensive (it's a capital city) but you slowly find out which places to avoid and which places are a little cheaper.

5/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

The area is quite businessy so not great for night life. But there are a few nice pubs scattered around which are ideal for visiting after work with friends.

6/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Yes. Although I didn't really get involved in them, there were various sports groups to get involved in.
