What were your main duties and responsibilities during the course of your internship?
My role was to coordinate the Tandem Language Exchange Programme. This involved promoting interest and involvement in the program through developing and marketing a number of activities and events.
What would you say was your biggest achievement over the course of your internship?
This internship has given me the responsibility, experience and confidence in my abilities to approach employers secure in the knowledge that I can demonstrate practical work experience as well as relate my skills to situations where I’ve used them successfully in the course of this internship.
What benefits did your internship bring to your employer?
As a student, I was able to relate more closely to fellow students than some of my colleagues in the language centre were. This meant that I was able to reach out to students in ways my colleagues were not aware of.
