Senior Consultant, Oracle Corporation
What I feel the benefits to my company are of having a placement student:
- Enthusiastic and eager to learn
- Have a different outlook to work
- Gives our team an opportunity to mentor a placement student and improve our training skills
- Changes the dynamics of the team – different age group and experience
- Flexible about the type of work they will undertake.
How I feel the experience benefits the student:
- Opportunity to work with the latest technology
- Become aware of the stresses and strains of working in a “real” working environment
- Learn new skills and tools e.g. programming, Oracle Applications, resolving problems etc.
- Learn to handle different tasks and organize their time to meet corporate deadlines
- Meet people from different backgrounds, with different skills & abilities and levels of seniority within the company.
