As the second semester comes to an end, I am looking forward to travelling up to London to look for accommodation with fellow IBMers in the Easter Break. Its deadline season at the moment so many long days are being spent in the library!

Also after six months as a Marketing and Recruitment Assistant I am about to finish my internship within the Student Campus Partnership Scheme. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and I am reflecting on the incredible experiences and amazing people I have had the pleasure to work with on a daily basis while working within the University of Exeter Business School Marketing Department. I can honestly say through this role I have learnt so much about the professional environment and it has given me the opportunity to gain insight from my colleagues with experience in the Marketing profession. I have to admit it is going to be weird not going to work for 15 hours a week!

Thinking ahead to July I am really looking forward to meeting a variety of new people from different countries, universities and backgrounds. As I will be living with other IBMers before the start of my placement, I will hopefully have a few weeks to explore London with my house mates before the start of my placement within Interactive Experience at IBM.

I wish all those who are preparing for exams the best of luck and to make the most of the few months left of this year!
