My best experience/greatest achievement:

What I learned:

“How to develop my skills outside of university and that there is no shame in asking for help and how to use criticism positively to improve myself.”

About my experience/Tips for students:

“I am so happy I decided to do a placement. I have improved as a person becoming more confident and hard working. It is an invaluable experience which sets you up for your future. I was given a large amount of responsibility which allowed me to progress as an employee. One tip I would give would be to always speak up and ask for help when you feel you need it, from applying to internships, to asking your team for help when you are at work.”
