Although the placement blog has been a little neglected over the last few months, the silver lining is that we’ve all been very busy in our offices!
It’s now nearing the end of our placement year at ProspectSoft, and I can’t quite believe how fast this year has flown by. It’s pretty hard to summarise the last 12 months in a short blog post so I’ll pick the best moments from the bunch to re-cap on my overall placement experience.
Yep, second year in a row and third time overall winning the Best SME Placement Provider Award! We submitted a strong application, interactive Prezi presentation and short video about our scheme which really justified and highlighted just how great being a placement is at ProspectSoft is. And despite the crippling hangover we all felt the morning after, the win and celebratory drinks in London were definitely worth it!
Featured in The Times
Another achievement that stands out was being featured in The Times, discussing my placement with ProspectSoft. The Times were running a LifeSkills Campaign in which they featured students partaking placements, and also placement providers. Making great relationships with RMP throughout my placement meant they gave The Times my name, and shortly after I was interviewed and featured in an article. Not only was it a great claim to fame, but it was also great for ProspectSoft to gain national coverage!
WOW – we’re good!
With the introduction to our newest Web Analytics product, ProspectWOW, we’ve certainly hit the ground running with its success. From On-Site training with the Wow guys, to brushing up on our demos and webinars, Sophie and I successfully closed two orders on our own accord start to finish.
Much to all of our joy, ProspectSoft recently unveiled the newest member of the team to the Sales & Marketing office, Percy the Pool table! Due to all of ProspectSoft’s hard work and commitment, what better way to take a break and relax over a game of pool on our personalised Pool table?
As it’s coming up to my last remaining weeks as a ProspectSoft placement, it’s fair to say I’ve learnt some really invaluable skills and met some great people along the way. If you’re looking to apply for a placement or have already gained one with ProspectSoft, the most important piece of advice I can give is to ask questions, push yourself and exceed expectations. The more you put in, the more you get out!
