1. Please give an overview of what your work experience involved:

9/10

Mace's virtual insight week consist of a programme designed for students to get an insight into various career paths within Mace. It was very informative and well structured and the interactive sessions allowed students to actively participate with the programme.

2. What training and skills development did you learn from your work experience?

8/10

Innovative thinking is an area which I felt I have improved upon since completing the programme. An exercise was conducting where groups were given a preexisting company and they had to formulate a plan on how the given company can complement the construction industry. It was fascinating to see the variety of approaches from different perspectives, indicating to me that there is still a large room for growth within the construction industry.

3. To what extent did you enjoy your work experience?

10/10

I enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in going into construction, design and auditory work.
