Talent Meets Bertelsmann Join a One-of-a-Kind Virtual Experience

Are you passionate about sharing your ideas for the digital future? Would you like to take a closer look at a global media, education and services corporation operating in some 50 countries worldwide? If so, join Talent Meets Bertelsmann, the career event for future innovators. This year, it will be held virtually in April and is open, among others, to students of the humanities and social sciences, as well as subjects related to media, journalism and communications.

Talent Meets Bertelsmann(TMB) is the media corporation’s annual international career event, and has been held for more than a decade. It offers you the opportunity to gain an in-depth insight into one of the biggest media companies in the world. You will get to know different people working for Bertelsmann and build a valuable network as you will become a lifelong member of TMB’s alumni community.



Entrepreneurship, creativity, digitalization

Normally, TMB takes place in Berlin, but this year’s event will be a one-time exceptional virtual experience for students in Europe. It’s all about entrepreneurship and creativity, the two values at the core of Bertelsmann’s varied activities in the areas of publishing, television, music, printing, services and education. And, of course, it is about the digitalization that transforms all of these businesses.


TMB will convene students from all over Europe to develop ideas in interdisciplinary teams. This is your chance to contribute your passion, creative mindset and media expertise to transforming a multinational group. What’s more, by taking part you will lay the foundations for a promising career that comprises innovation and creativity.


“I enjoyed most that I got to meet people who had similar
interests but came from very different backgrounds.
So, I think me and all of these different minds figuring
out how I would fit into that world was really useful.”

Raphaela Ring, TMB17 alumna


Talent Meets Bertelsmann will take place from April 12 to 30, 2021. During these three weeks, you will take part in nine three-hour virtual sessions that will be held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, starting at 5PM. These sessions will be about
