During the internship the host company made me feel at home and it helped me settle in. I learnt compliance, investigative, communication and accounting skills. My consultant also checked in throughout; she was with me all the way. Now I have much needed local experience, my professional network has grown and my confidence in professional meetings have received a boost.
