Bridge 2 Business Collab Gains Edinburgh College Students Employment

Bridge 2 Business Collaboration with Heehaw Brings Opportunity To Students
Earlier this year, Bridge2Business joined forces with Heehaw, to bring an exciting competition and opportunity for Edinburgh College Students.
The competition gave Edinburgh College students the opportunity to win a paid work placement, and valuable experience in the industry of animation, film & television. This opportunity also gave students the chance to develop their skills, which hopefully would secure them a job in the future, or give real inspiration to start up their own business!
Earlier this week, we got news from HeeHaw that the students who won the competition through Bridge2Business, have in fact gained employment within the industry. We had 40 students apply for the placement, which was then narrowed down to a top ten, and ultimately two won a paid placement! It was a tough decision, as the standard was incredibly high. The students who won impressed our judges the most were Daniel Kreutzinger and Martin Diavolo, and secured a placement!
Daniel has shared his experience on his placement said:
"Thanks to Heehaw and Bridge 2 Business I had an amazing chance to be a part of the Heehaw's team during my work placement. Everyone was so supportive and made me feel like a valuable team member. From the first day at Heehaw, I was assigned to one of many projects they were working on. I was briefed on every stage of the project I was working on and given space to use my own creativity. I was really lucky to have an opportunity to work beside this multi-talented team in a professional setting. This work experience has given me more confidence and direction about how I can build my future career."
We would like to thank Heehaw for giving students the opportunity to flourish and gain valuable experience through Bridge2Business, and we look forward to continuing this partnership going forward!
