Look at Ollie's blog to see how he has found his Year in Industry with Atlas Copco Compressors in the CRM team. See what Ollie has to say about the office environment, the recruitment process and his highlights of the year so far.
If I can recommend one thing when doing a degree, it is undertaking a placement year. My time at Atlas Copco is now drawing to a close but yet I feel as though it was only yesterday that I came in for my induction day! This really does give credit to Atlas as they say time flies when you’re having fun! This year has taught me a lot more than what University could ever teach, having never worked in an office environment before I feel as though I have enhanced a range of skills to take into any job upon graduation.
I can honestly say that everyone I’ve worked with this year are lovely people and played a big part in helping me to settle in, so I’d like to thank them for that. In March, I was given the opportunity to travel to Glasgow where I visited some of our customer sites and saw our equipment in action. This was really good as normally all I get to see is the name of a compressor and how many we’ve sold in a month on a spreadsheet!
Another big highlight for me was attending the national sales meeting in Northampton, where I assisted in setting up views on some of our sales team’s laptops so that they can prospect more easily. One big highlight from this year was getting involved in the recruitment process for my replacement next year, I really enjoyed this, and it gave me an insight into what makes a candidate stand out!
