“T5 Career Forum” is launched at MEDICA 2016


At MEDICA 2016, the “T5 Career Forum” is launched


The trend can no longer be overlooked. Many employers in the field of medical technology complain of a lack of experts and managers, particularly in the case of engineers, scientists, and IT specialists. There is a lack of candidates with and without professional experience. At the same time, more than 20,000 of the total 130,000 visitors to MEDICA 2015 already stated that they also visited the world’s largest medical trade show (recently featuring almost 5,000 exhibitors from 70 countries) to gain career perspectives.

Based on this development, from this year on, MEDICA will include the “T5 Career Forum” to cover the topics of recruiting and career planning. The forum will be planned and implemented in close cooperation with the T5 KarrierePortal – as a platform for employers as well as experts and managers. “In the first year, as a joint effort, we would like to test how large the true need really is for employers as well as candidates and what other topics might be of interest,” explained Klaus Peter Kaas from the T5 KarrierePortal.

The cooperation between MEDICA and the T5 KarrierePortal also stretches into the online area, reciprocally linking an electronic job market with the portals at “MEDICA.de” and “T5-karriereportal.de” (Link: http://www.medica-tradefair.com/tcf2).

MEDICA 2016 will be held from 14 to 17 November in Düsseldorf, running, as in the previous year, from Monday to Thursday. In parallel to MEDICA 2016, COMPAMED 2016 will be taking place, the internationally leading specialist trade fair for suppliers of the medical technology industry (in 2015: 779 exhibitors from 37 countries).
