The B-Hive Plan
Getting a job in the creative industries is very competitive. With companies always looking for that extra something from candidates, it can be tough to set yourself apart from the competition!
B-Hive can give you a head start and ensure you stand out from the pack
The deal is simple, B-Hive is split into 5 categories – Marketing, PR, Advertising, Graphic Design and Web Design. Each category consists of a panel of judges representing leading creative agencies and big brands.
B-Hive is open to all students who are currently in their 2nd, 3rd/final year of study, MA students at one of participating universities and colleges and offers the opportunity to win one of 30 paid placements. The scheme is also open to 2013 graduates from these same institutions.
To take part all you need to do is to pick the category that’s most appropriate to you, download the brief and start crafting your response. The best entrants in each discipline will be invited to present to a panel of industry experts during a three day event in March 2014. Think Dragons Den with less dragon-like dragons.
Details of the briefs, along with release dates and submission deadlines can be found in the Enter B-Hive section of the site.
Having a month’s experience at one these companies is guaranteed to not only give you valuable experience, but also to open a lot more doors for you within the industry!
But wait. There’s more. B-Hive is also partners with other prominent players in the business community. All of which means that all the winners will receive a bespoke training course courtesy of the lovely people at Graduate Advantage.
So if you think you have what it takes then read through the info and get busy. You’ll also find lots of other useful stuff too such as which employers are involved, advice from key industry experts, what happened last year, plus much more.
