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

Not that much. Obviously, being there only a month, its not like I was able to create relationships with clients or have any meaningful role that would be missed when I left. However, I was trusted with some documents and mapping that went directly to clients

I am about to embark on my masters degree. I now have a good insight into some of the processes of real estate and I'm sure I will have an edge over other students who are also about to undertake masters.
