I held a position in Lending, which is an area that I was interested in but I didn’t have a huge amount of knowledge as to what actually happened day-to-day in this business. In my opinion the biggest indication that my placement was a success is the fact that it has helped me choose my subjects for final year. Following my placement, which was quite a numerical job, I now have no doubt that the financial specialism is the best option for me. I also believe that the industry experience I have gained through the INTRA programme will make me a much more desirable prospect to potential employers.” Daniel Kenny, Year 4, Bachelor of Business Studies INTRA Placement: Lending Services Team, Anglo Irish Bank, Dublin www.dcu.ie/dc111
