In a significant step towards nurturing local talent and fostering industry-academia collaboration, Farsight, a digital media and marketing agency, is thrilled to announce the addition of two bright students from Robert Gordon University (RGU) to their team.

Maria Thomson and Mónica Vallejo Rivera have joined the Farsight family on a 12-week placement, marking a pivotal moment for both the students and the company.

Founded in early 2024 by Michael Silva, Farsight has quickly established itself with the high ambition of becoming the premier agency for digital media and marketing services across the North-east of Scotland. Michael expressed his pride in offering placement opportunities to students, stating: "It’s a privilege to have Maria and Mónica join us. Their fresh perspectives and energetic input align perfectly with Farsight's vision and values. We are committed to being at the forefront of the digital marketing industry, and nurturing young talent is a vital part of this journey."

Maria and Mónica, both third year digital marketing students, have already shown themselves to be outstanding individuals who share Farsight’s core values of innovation, creativity, and excellence. Their involvement is set to be invaluable as Farsight embarks on releasing its exciting new style of advertising, aiming to collaborate with brands across Scotland to create groundbreaking campaigns.

Farsight's initiative not only highlights the company's commitment to contributing to the local economy and community but also underscores the importance of practical learning experiences for students. By integrating academic knowledge with real-world business operations, Maria and Mónica will gain invaluable insights and skills that will undoubtedly benefit their future careers.

As Farsight continues to grow and achieve its goal of becoming the go-to digital media and marketing agency in the region, the placement of Maria and Mónica symbolises the company's dedication to excellence and its belief in the power of nurturing the next generation of professionals.
