How to apply: Please apply online, as we do not consider applications submitted by mail, fax, or e-mail. Your application (in English) should tell us about yourself and your goals. Let us know why you want to participate in “Talent Meets Bertelsmann.” Your resume should clearly indicate that you are fascinated by media as well as data, and your motivation letter should explain why you are eager to pursue entrepreneurial challenges. Please attach any certificates attesting to your proficiency in English if available.
After we have reviewed your application, we will decide if you will be invited to the second round of the selection process: an asynchronous video interview. Alternatively, there is the possibility to have a phone interview instead of the asynchronous video interview. After the interviews, we will soon send out invitations for the event.
