Anna finished up with us here on Friday and I just wanted to let you know that she was a fantastic addition to the staff while she was here!

I don’t think it needs more than this highly positive quote from Anna’s work placement supervisor to introduce our next student of the month. So join us in congratulating Anna Hamm and enjoy her to-the-point-interview!

Tell me a little bit about yourself and your educational background.

My name is Anna, I am 17 years old and I am from Germany. At the moment I visit high school and after the holidays I will start my last school year.

What was it like working at IBAT College Dublin?

Working at IBAT College Dublin was a pleasure because the people there were totally friendly and I liked to work with them. I collected a lot of experience during this time.

She worked in many different areas of the College and contributed to a lot of the workloads for the admission, reception and library teams
— Anna’s supervisor at IBAT College

How would you compare your work placement to your work or school back home?

I would say that I can‘t compare my work placement at IBAT with my school because it’s different and at the IBAT I had more responsibility than at my school.

What was the best moment of your trip? 

My best moment was to see how friendly the people are there.

She was a conscientious person and worked well with everyone in the office
— Anna’s supervisor at IBAT College

How has this experience inspired you?

The experience there inspired me especially in terms of being more open with other people.

What have you found most exciting about working and living in a new country? 

The  most exciting thing about working and living in another country is to see a new culture with new people.

She positively engaged and participated with every task she was given
— Anna’s supervisor at IBAT College

What are your plans for the future? 

My plan for the future is to finish school and after that to study at university.

What would your advice be for students who are about to go on the Internship Programme?

My advice for students who are about to go on the internship Programme is that they should have a relaxed attitude and to interact with other people to expand their own horizons.
