"This placement has helped me to be able to work well in a team and communicate better with other people. These were things I was not strong at doing before."
My placement was in a buying and selling Company, as an assistant to the Head of Business Development and Special Events.
I had the opportunity to attend a meeting outside the office, and saw products that the Chinese were considering to sell in the Czech Market. I gained the experience of writing up proposals, on companies and their products that my host organisation might be interested in working with.
During my time in Prague, I was able to gain amazing and wonderful experiences while living in a beautiful and dynamic country.
I have always been interested in starting my own company, but after working at my host organisation, I see how stressful and disorganized it can be. I have realized I may want to work for a bigger corporation, where I can obtain more training and have specific tasks.
Overall, I am grateful to observe how a start-up company works and to enhance my communication, organizational, and analytical skills.
This placement has helped me to be able to work well in a team and communicate better with other people. These were thing I was not strong at doing before. I had the opportunity to see how a start-up business operates while working in a different country.
My time in Prague has helped me professionally; I learnt key valuable life lessons, while working and in reality too. I would like to do more internships, as I feel I learnt a lot from this one. I got the chance to see how a business operates in another country and I would like to do this again in other countries.
