I knew that I wanted the chance to contribute to the business and be appreciated by those around me during my placement year. Eight months in and I am still being surprised by the opportunities that I am being given.
Doing an internship with Enterprise has allowed me to meet so many new people, meaning that alongside work I’ve not only had lots of fun, but I also learned the skills that are going to make a real difference to my career.
Phil’s get-up-and-go’ attitude meant that the sky was the limit during his Enterprise Management Trainee Placement. Having worked in three branches, he picked up skills from each one and is on track to gain a promotion.
When I look back to the time that I was attending the assessment centre day for my placement, I can really tell how much I've learnt and developed. Best of all, I could work for Enterprise in my home town.
Many universities now offer the chance for their students to spend a year, semester or even a month abroad. Here are just some of the great things that you could get out of your time overseas, from learning a new language to gaining useful skills for your graduate career.
When I first moved to the UK to study, I didn’t realise how much I would love being here. A placement at Enterprise was not only great for my career development, it also confirmed that I want to continue to work and live here after I graduate.
There are always new challenges at Enterprise, and the time I spent as an intern allowed me to get ahead as a graduate management trainee. It’s only been 18 months but I’ve come such a long way both personally and professionally.
