    4/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • On-Campus Promotions invested heavily into the project - briefing day with tailored training; travel expenses; competitive salary and bonus; and entrusted brand ambassadors with iPods with unique software for the campaign.

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Although it does not look likely that I will work for On-Campus Promotions, I may have a place with the client company (Deloitte) after graduation.

    3/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • On the briefing day there was ample opportunity to get to know the rest of the brand ambassadors from different universities (I believe this will be the same on the forthcoming debrief day)

    4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • I lived at home in Glasgow and living costs are relatively cheap.

    4/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Glasgow (and particularly my university, Strathclyde) has a great nightlife with student events almost every night of the week.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • As this was a very campaign and individual campaign on each brand ambassador's campus, there was little activities - however, meeting different societies and clubs throughout the campaign allowed me to get involved with other activities and events.

    3/5
