The Role



The Role

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

Whilst quiet at times the job was very challenging with each day requiring a fresh outlook.


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

Whilst in the beginning I was just a lowly student once they realised my potential they pushed and encouraged me to achieve higher.


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

Whilst they weren't holding my hand management were always there for me and regular team meetings, reviews and informal chats ensured that no one was left out of the team.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The workload was quite intense at times, in IT everything had to be done yesterday but it was part of the challenge to deliver.


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

Initially I started off in a normal role but as I progressed through the year I was given more responsibility and towards the end I was running some projects of my own.


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

Whilst I didn't receive any formal training the skills I learn't and the experiences I had (both within the office and outside) have proved invaluable in the graduate interview processes.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

IT was the best place to work, we had a closed door office so we had a laff from time to time.


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

The scheme was well defined and executed, I do feel they could of supported us more in finding housing and some more information about the local area.


9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

Again, whilst no formal training was given I learn't many, many skills and these have definatley helped me in furthering my career.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Staff Sales/Staff Shop

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Whilst it's a very good multinational company to work for they didn't make much provision for some of the students to further their career.



12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

With 30 students at the company I had some great times, met some great people, and made some long lasting friends.


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

High Wycombe was fairly cheap to live in but the cost was it wasn't the nicest of places.


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

Nightlife... what nightlife?


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

Yep, there was regular football games, some yearly challenges such as 3 peaks etc.
