    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Really enjoyed the placement - a great way to combine all my aspirations: studying for a degree, using social media effectively and promoting careers a genuinely believed in.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I felt well valued and well supported. Even though I rarely saw my 'team' there was a good facebook page to keep me updated and regular emails from the team

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • I was well supported by the OCP team and given weekly guidance as to my tasks to perform.

    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • It was variable - I was particularly busy in first term when I was attending presentations and writing reports, but generally the work fitted well into my daily schedule

    5/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I felt very responsible, particularly as I was the only Deloitte Ambassador at the Cambridge Campus

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I think they were really helpful as many companies now look to employ people with marketing skills/ those who are savvy in social media, whether or not these are directly related to the job.

    4/5

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • Difficult to answer as the role was based on campus rather than in the office!

    3/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • I thought it was well organised generally, however there were some problems such as key elements of the campaign (e.g. the ipod touch for data collection) failing to be delivered despite constant emails. This somewhat hindered my work in the first term

    3/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I felt really valued and responsible, there was a training day and opportunities to apply for 'brand manager awards' which showed that the firm not only invested in us but encouraged us to invest in ourselves based on the skills they had helped us develop.

    3/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • 4/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • I really value the skills I learned during the placement, but as a future employer I am less certain as I am keen to go into politics.

    3/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • I was the only brand ambassador for Deloitte at my university so it was difficult to get to know fellow colleagues.

    3/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Living in cambridge as a student is quite expensive but manageable considering the loan and the limited time we have for socialising!

    3/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Good, fun and safe - a small student city with regular nights out.

    3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • Not directly related to OCP here, but I am sure a career with OCP at the head office would involve many.
