Analysing the Program’s execution has been very important to us throughout our journey. We’ve asked all Juniors to give us written feedback after each of their lessons, had development discussions with all of them during the program and had both spoken and written overall feedback from them at the end of the programs.
Here’s some of what has been said out loud - and if you’re interested we happily invite you to dig deeper by reading our full reports of the finished programs here.
“I got much more important knowledge and tips from the program than I had expected to. After the program, I now feel I am much more ready for this industry than I was before. I got a more concrete picture of the industry, and I now also have a much better and clearer idea of what the professional work in this industry is like.”
“Mostly I want to thank Emma and Iiris for having a straightforward and open way to communicate – things are neither sugar-coated nor downgraded. I also give credit for their openness, since one rarely gets as valuable tips from industry professionals.“
“It was interesting to meet people of my own age too.”
“I was surprised to see how tight and good team spirit we developed among the juniors. In fact, all of us became really good friends during the program.”
“Even though I had high hopes already in the beginning of the program it exceeded my expectations. I’ve suffered from insecurity towards my work in many past positions but from BBG I got very straight and encouraging input of my work. When given any responsibility I never felt like failing though I would not have delivered 100%. I could always trust I’d be given honest and appropriate feedback.”
“I was surprised by how much especially Emma and Iiris had invested in the execution of the program, although there was no guarantee of its success and they both must have been very busy. I think that was bold, and it was a positive surprise.”
“My goals became more specific, and their content and the steps to achieve them became more concrete. My understanding of the industry expanded, and I learned to appreciate the professional skills needed in different kinds of tasks.”
“The Excel workshop opened me a new world of which I hadn’t even known to dream of before.”
“Thank you, the program was an amazing experience and I still appreciate this opportunity a lot.”
“Emma’s Excel workshop was the best! Thank you for both Iiris and Emma for the important lessons. You are awesome!”
“I try to dream less and enjoy more the point where I am right now. Being new in the industry and not having enough skills felt difficult and embarrassing before. Now I try to think that this is an important phase and that inexperience is nothing to be ashamed of.
