Decent

Describe the aspect of your job you most enjoy...

"I enjoy the challenging and dynamic nature of the job in which products aren't sold but solutions are created to each client's specific needs. I also really enjoy interacting with clients to find bespoke solutions."

Describe the aspect of your job you least enjoy...

"There seems to be too much bureaucracy in the way the company carries out its day-to-day business. I feel that there is too much of a hierarchical structure that also makes new graduates often feel undervalued. "

Describe the greatest difference from your expectation of your job...

"The role is more hands-on than I expected and there's a lot more bureaucratic loops to go through on an ongoing basis."

If you could tell your younger self one thing before applying for a graduate job, what would it be?

"Think long and hard about what you want to do. Try to apply for jobs you truly feel passionate about. When meeting with prospective employers (in interviews or other situations), try to gauge as much as possible about their working lives and how the company runs. If you don't see a fit, then don't go through with it. I really love my job and have few regrets other than wasting time applying to other firms!"

How willing would you be to accept your job knowing what you now know?

Yeah, sign me up.
