"I am benefiting from the scheme greatly. My technical skills have probably doubled since the time I have started my work placement" Darren Kelly, Hardscore Games, Berlin. Darren completed his placement in September 2016 and is now employed full time with the company.
"The program is such an incredible opportunity for those looking for work especially for someone like myself who is trained in a specialised discipline (computer games development). The program enabled me to get my first job as a junior (not an intern) in a game studio while also getting to experience living in a different city, something I would not thought of doing if I didn't have the support of the co- sponsored placement programme." Aoibhinn McAuley, completed her placement in June 2016
"Currently I'm animating, which is exactly what I was studying in college. I hope to find a job in the animation field when I'm finished…. I'd advise people not to be frightened to change their environment, it’s refreshing", Martyna Barkowska , Currently placed with Animoon in Warsaw
