"Straight after my five week training induction I was able to get a role as a business analyst with a retail client. I think the most noticeable thing about this role is the amount of responsibility I was given early on. It was a bit daunting at first but with such a large support network on the project, there was always someone to help if needed. Additionally, IBM advise changing roles every three-six months whilst on the graduate scheme as it helps to build your skill set."
