Berlin, 21 March 2022, Almost every industry is desperately in search of skilled workers, whether in nursing, IT, the skilled trades or industry – and digital health is no exception. Clever minds are needed to ensure that in the future software, apps and technology will continue to be developed and optimised. This year, DMEA is again providing a platform for making contact with digital health companies, networking and meeting potential employers of the future.

Meet2Match connects the industry and young professionals

12 career partners will be at the event to assist students, graduates and young professionals with information about jobs with their companies and offer important tips for careers in digital health. Young professionals will be able to make contact with career partners at speed dating events – where they can ask questions and introduce themselves to the relevant representatives of companies. Every five minutes the conversation partners will change, enabling each student and trainee to briefly meet every career partner. The career partners in 2022 are Cerner Corporation, Dedalus HealthCare GmbH, DMI GmbH & Co. KG, Friedrich-Wingert-Stiftung, InterSystems GmbH, m.Doc GmbH, medatixx GmbH & Co. KG, Meierhofer AG, NEXUS AG, Sana Kliniken AG, Deutsche Telekom Healthcare Solutions GmbH and x-tention Informationstechnologie GmbH.

Guided career tours on the DMEA grounds

A career tour will take place on both the Tuesday and Wednesday of the fair, each visiting five career partners. They will be able to give a short presentation introducing themselves to prospective employees. No registration is necessary for the career tours. Incidentally, visitors can combine tours with the Young Professional Rallye, for which an app will be available in the run-up to DMEA. In it, each company will pose a question or set a small task which young professionals must solve. The winners will receive a prize.
