What happened after?
The Talent Meets Bertelsmann community already includes almost 700 outstanding members. Former TMB participants share their stories: What happened after Talent Meets Bertelsmann?
“We came first in the competition at TMB, and right after the presentation one of Bertelsmann’s Board members approached me and asked me if I wanted to become his personal assistant. I got to know him and decided to decline an offer from Google to join Bertelsmann as his assistant in September 2016. It was one of the best times I have ever had. I learned a lot, traveled the world and got to know the media industry working for a really experienced CEO. That was an incredible experience.“
“I finished my Master’s thesis with new enthusiasm because data was a topic of TMB and also of my thesis. After that, I started my traineeship at Gruner + Jahr."
"I participated in TMB in 2012. Afterwards I finished my internship at careerloft in Berlin, then enjoyed the summer at my parents before writing my Master’s thesis in Montréal, Canada. During all that time I never lost contact with Bertelsmann, which was great for me, since I was looking to start a job right after my thesis."
"When TMB was over I returned to London, where I finished writing my Master’s thesis. After handing it in, I spent the five months from October 2011 to February 2012 in Brussels as a Blue Book trainee with the European Commission. Then, at Halloween, I joined the other team members and the leaders of our group on a trip to New York!"
