"I can't recommend B-Hive enough, especially to second year students. I entered last year in my second year and won a one week placement with Big. That week turned into 3 months. Those 3 months recently led onto a job offer! So now I have my dream job waiting for me when I graduate, which wouldn't have been possible without the B-Hive competition.
Not only has it given me a fantastic opportunity, it really helped me with my confidence. I had never presented my work to professionals before entering the competition. Although it seems scary, it is great practice and will be helpful for the future.
Even if you don't win you still get to meet lots of influential people from the industry and knowing people can be the difference between getting a placement or not. Personality is as important as your work.
Honestly there is so much to benefit from entering, so just go for it!"
