There was some structure and organisation. The structure which was set up was very different to the task delegation that I received. This was expected as to the nature of the industry

None directly that I am aware of

They were a great company to work with and work placements can be a great stepping platform in getting work and future employment. The people you get to work with and meet will teach you some of the greatest lessons

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to fac365?

Don't rush the application process, interviews can be scary but don't fear them and be yourself. It is better to be yourself and make an odd mistake then fake someone you are not as you'll be found out in the end. Take every opportunity you can
