1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


The first two weeks were focused on team building and using skills from school in the workplace. The third week was in the office and each day we were given tasks to complete by our mentors and sometimes asked to give short presentations on our completed tasks.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I feel that over the three weeks, I improved my communication skills as every day I was meeting new people to work with. I also developed my presentation skills as this was involved in many of our tasks.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


Overall I enjoyed the programme although I found a few of the presentations uninteresting.

4. How valued do you feel by EY?


I don't feel overly valued at EY as I understand I was very low on the organisation chart and was only there for a very short period of time. However the time I did spend at EY, I felt that there was a lot of attention given to our group.
