I recently caught up with Dan, who is about to finish his year placement at Dolby; here are his thoughts and reflections.
“Over Easter 2016, I was looking at my CV and although I was happy with what I had achieved at University thus far – I had partaken in enough work experience and society events for my satisfaction – I decided I needed to throw myself out of my comfort zone.
