  2. The work was isnightful and the overall experience gave me a great insight into life within Fidelity.


  3. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  4. I was given a lot of responsibility from the beginning, at no point did I feel like I was 'just an intern'.


  5. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  6. The support was extensive, not only from my personal manager, but also from the sponsor of the Business Management stream and HR.

  8. It varied, some days were very busy, others less so.


  9. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  10. I was running my own project within the team, so I had a lot of responsibility.


  11. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  12. Hopefully my experience will allow me to better respond to any interview questions, it has definitly already widened my knowlege about the asset management industry.


  13. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  14. Very relaxed, everyone was extremely friendly.


  15. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  16. It was the most well organised internship I have undertaken. There was a comprehensive social calendar organised, there were in office Lunch and Learn sessions to gain wider exposure to the rest of the business also.


  17. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  18. The first week was exclusively training in areas such as excel and financial markets. Fidelity definitely invested in interns beyond my expectations.

  21. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  22. Hopefully the internship will lead to a full time graduate role.


  23. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  24. The office is very large, so although we organised drinks between fellow interns, there wasnt really 'after work drinks' with colleagues.


  25. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  26. I was based in Kingswood, the food here is subsidised so very reasonable and there are free Fidelity coaches to and from the station.


  27. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  28. No nightlife in Kingswood, have to go to London.


  29. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  30. Lots of opportunities for social drinks for interns, within the wider company there are many different activiites going on, including charity runs and barbecues.


  31. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
