More about Lucy
"My employer was very supportive as well as the other employees in the company. I went out on weekly visits with the Sales Director who answered many questions I had regarding customers. If I had any issues with anything my questions were soon answered by Gallant employees who were more than willing to help me.
"I had to develop a Customer Relationship Management system for the company to use on a daily basis. At times I lacked confidence and feared my ideas would be dismissed. This soon went as I became more confident with the employees and found it less difficult to voice my opinion.
"Designing a CRM system for a company and then having it implemented into their management structure is an honour and I am sure that other companies will appreciate this and it will be something I can reflect on during interviews in the future.
"My studies enabled me to develop a basic knowledge of how business works, but working in a company has enabled me to understand these difficulties first hand and appreciate how much work goes into helping a company survive.
"I definitely would recommend undertaking an internship. Not many companies offer a four month placement to students during term time so this is too good an opportunity to pass up. The internship enables students to benefit from both experience, as well as completing their degree in three years."
