Knight Frank

Minuses

2017

"The office wasn't very busy due to the internship being in July. As a result, I was limited with what there was to do."
Intern, London - Baker Street
"I didn't get to spend much time with my supervisor as he was extremely busy."
Intern, London
"The only negative I have with the internship is that recruitment was too slow and last minute. I wouldn't have been able to join the internship if I hadn't had a local friend to stay with. Also, I never really got to develop a close relationship with a team as I moved around departments a lot. This meant that no one really saw me develop throughout the month. I also want to go into surveying but I didn't have much control over my timetable planning so I didn't get to have much experience in this."
Intern, London
"You don't have much choice when it comes to which teams you work in."
Intern, London
"The application process could have taken place a little earlier."
Intern, London
"I felt that the interview process was poorly timed and a little rushed."
Intern, London
"It can be hard to give interns important work because, at the end of the day, it all needs to be double-checked by the person assigning the work. This sometimes resulted in very quiet days."
Intern, London

2015

"The summer is a quiet period so I found there to be a lack of activity."
Intern, London
"The internships are short, at two weeks long, and I found that in my department a longer period of time is needed to get a better overview."
Intern, London
"There is no department rotation available, although this does mean that your focus lies in one area in particular."
Intern, London
"I would have liked more structure in my work, so I wouldn't need to look for work to be done once I have completed a task."
Intern, London
"I feel like I could be challenged more as I am at a desk all day, so perhaps more variety from day-to-day would be beneficial."
Intern, London

2014

"As expected people at the firm are busy which means you will inevitably have some downtime during the course of the internship."
London
"Only spending a limited amount of time in my department means that I only skim the surface of what the team does."
London
"The only negative is that I was not in my department of choice but, having said this, Student Property has exceeded my expectations and I have had the opportunity to experience a department that I would not have had the chance to work in before."
London
"Staying in the same department for the whole thing can get a little tiresome if you are not given any real responsibility."
London
"Having not yet studied a property-related degree - sometimes I have felt out of my depth with the tasks set."
London
"Residential internships are only two weeks long, and it would be good to be here a little bit longer. It would also be useful to have more information on how the graduate scheme works if you are successful in getting a place e.g. What are the rotations? What are the different departments and locations you could be in?"
London
