News PM


Tobacco company Philip Morris GmbH (PMG) and software company ubivent GmbH have been awarded the “Deutscher Preis für Onlinekommunikation” in the Food & Beverage category for their “Virtual Career Fair”. This digital job fair offers potential applicants the opportunity on an online platform to find out more about the company Philip Morris and its strategic realignment towards a smoke-free future. As with a real career fair, the platform provides various options for gathering information and making contact: if applicants click on the “Booths”, they receive information about the various departments at the company. In the “Auditorium”, interested parties can follow brief presentations from Philip Morris employees. In the pilot project on February 21, 2018, a team of PMG employees also took part by means of a live chat to answer questions about the company and career opportunities.

Virtual career fairs allow companies to increase the reach for their events by providing much more flexibility when it comes to geographical location and time. Applicants can sign in from anywhere in the world and interested parties can still access the fair online after it has ended.

‘Virtual market place of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)’

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is using the ubivent platform again for a virtual marketplace. This marketplace is a key element of the program "WIR! – Wandel durch Innovationen in der Region". The program has been kicked off directly on the online marketplace: A video presentation in the virtual auditorium has been used to communicate the general set-up of the program. After this presentation, the participants had the opportunity to interact among each other and with experts from the BMBF. As a next step, selected scientific institutions and companies will get the opportunity to present themselves at a virtual booth on the marketplace. Here, these consortia can present themselves and are thus supported in in the formation of decentralized alliances which enables an effective exchange of scientific and technological knowledge. Further information on the concept and a retrospective of a past project can be found on our reference page. We are looking forward to an exiting project with many innovative ideas!
