What students say

This was an amazing experience. First of all, thank you for all the hard work you put into creating this! This was really and truly an amazing experience for me to take part in. I loved every module in this programme, and the experience each one gave me. Unlike other virtual work experiences I've taken part in, this one successfully made me feel like I was a part of the company, made me feel like Vodafone was home. And I liked that feeling, that even though this was just a work experience, It made me feel like pursuing a career path with Vodafone would be just the thing for me, and this feeling of consolidation in what I want, especially in a time of such uncertainty, is euphoric. I really can't thank you enough for all the hard work you did to prepare this programme and hopefully I'll manage to thank you in person. Finally, a big special thanks to everyone who ran the webinars!
I would like to personally thank all your effort, dedication to giving us the required and extra details of information, covering almost, if not all the topics that myself and others were curious and worried about and for doing this when you probably have a large workload yourself. You may not feel it, but I for one feel ecstatic to know that there are companies such as Vodafone out there that can give wonderful opportunities to us , with members of staff this informative out there and I am grateful for all that you have each done to make this programme experience an exceptional one. Best of luck to all of you in your futures!!!
I would like to say thank you very much for taking your time to create an amazing work experience for me and others to participate in. The activites were well thought out and it really showed how much time and effort you put into your activities and the virtual work experience as a whole. Greatly appreciate the work you put into the work experience and I will tell my friends about this amazing work experience if it ever happens again.
