I found the event interesting, useful and compelling since during the day i was involved in a number of key discussions and interesting debates. Also the environment around me had a impressive feeling with a touch of heaviness but also an element of surprise due to the inspiring speeches and talks we were given by an undergraduate internship placement student.
The reason why i found it interesting was because most of the information i was given on the day has impacted the way i feel and think about pursuing my university career. It’s both helpful and enjoyable to know that i have more than one route to explore after i finish college. For example, the route of apprenticeship which not only allows people to get paid and have a much deeper understanding of work but also make friends and connect with other people as these connections will come in handy later on in life.
In addition to that i also found it useful because i found the understanding of how to handle a disappointing grade helpful and i also found the tips and points given by our mentor on what we should do if we are not progressing as well as we hoped.
Finally, i found it compelling since i thought the building itself and even the surrounding area in Paddington was very VERY professional and proved to me that only the most determined people are able to pursue a career at Microsoft but it is worth it ‘even if the food there is a little expensive’ (according to the intern who spoke to us)!
