I found it very beneficial that we discussed different careers options in the insurance industry and that we got the opportunity to meet professionals from the industry to ask them relevant questions. I really appreciate the efforts and friendliness you put into this programme. Everything was interesting and I have learned lots of interesting things and facts about insurance.
I really enjoyed the programme and it gave me a better understanding of the insurance industry and potential careers in the field. I really appreciate that we had the opportunity to meet professionals from the industry and ask them about life in insurance and personal opinions about different job opportunities. All the knowledge I gained through this programme will make a difference when applying for my placement year.
I have learnt new things that I can add on to my existing knowledge about the industry. What I particularly liked about the programme was that Anna and Samantha didn't just tell us what not to do. They went on to explain why. Overall the it was a success.
I found the breakdown of the various roles, and their work to be very beneficial. I also found the interview tips and preparation useful in helping me to reflect on where I have perhaps made mistakes in the past; and therefore how I can improve.
This was an extremely beneficial and insightful experience. I acquired a breadth of knowledge on the insurance industry and the range of career opportunities available.
I think that the most beneficial aspects to the programme was defiantly learning about what the industry is about and the different job roles within the industry.
I feel as though this programme prepares you for progressing within the industry because of the support I have received during the past 3 days.
