9a. Would you recommend Hewlett Packard Enterprise to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
I studied at university for a year and I didn't enjoy it, I wanted to get hands on experience instead and I decided to get an apprenticeship instead which was the better option for me. It is better to get paid to learn than it is to get into debt and learn, that's just my opinion some people enjoy university however.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Hewlett Packard Enterprise? *
Be confident, ask questions, make sure you stand out from others. Give your opinion but listen to other people's.
