"I undertook a year-long placement at IQVIA working as a SAS Programmer. All my colleagues and team members were incredibly supportive. In IQVIA they are not afraid to give new starters responsibilities and I was assigned a range of assignments including programming derived datasets from scratch."

"I would highly recommend you complete a placement year as you will gain both technical and soft skills such as teamwork, organisation and communication which are pivotal to any role."
