Any specific comments about the host company?
Fantastic company very welcoming and open to you pursuing what you want to achieve.
How would you summarise your experience with Placement Year International?:
Very efficient and great with communication, understood what I was looking for and allowed time for if we wanted to choose a different internship.
Do you have any useful tips for future interns?:
Attend the meetings [we run monthly group zoom meetings so you can meet other people going to your country around the same time] and be as detailed as possible with what you are looking for and don`t be afraid to say no to the first offer you get if you don`t feel its suitable for you.
Would you recommend Placement Year International?:
Highly Recommend. They opened many doors for me and the experience and memories abroad are worth it compared to a year working locally back home like everyone else.
Working in partnership with universities, prestigious global hotel brands and many other businesses.
