    DigiBC is developing a new pilot program to provide work placement opportunities in the Creative Tech sector, supported by the Province of British Columbia. This exciting new initiative will create student placements within animation, visual effects, and XR companies across BC.

    Offering new tailored resources for students and employers alike, the program will help students build successful careers in Creative Tech, while also supporting employers in hiring talented students. Further details about the new program will be available in late May. Stay tuned! 👀
