Sunday 13 June to Friday 18 June 2021

Important update on MATCH! 2020 Technical Business Course

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are sorry to inform you that the MATCH! 2020 Technical Business Course has been postponed. We could not guarantee that the business course could continue in its current format due to the safety measures in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and uncertainties about their duration.

As we want to give every candidate the full experience of what DSM is all about, we have decided to organize a new MATCH! Business Course in June 2021. 

We are looking for bright young top talents

From Sunday 13 June to Friday 18 June 2021, MATCH! gives you the unique opportunity of getting to know DSM from the inside; our people, locations and activities.

Are you down to earth, able to engage and inspire others? Are you aiming for a career at a top international employer? Then YOU are the kind of person we are looking for.

DSM’s technical business course is the career event for students (Master, PhD & MBA students) graduating in 2020/2021. We’re looking for bright young top talents for our traineeship positions at different locations in Europe.

A number of participants from the MATCH! 2021 course will be matched to open entry-level positions within DSM. When being matched, you will be part of the DSM’s “Bright Talent Development Program”. This is a 2-year traineeship program focused on your professional personal development. Some participants will also get the opportunity to take part in a rotational program in which you can explore two different roles within the 2 years.

Do you want to join the course and be MATCHed to one of our open entry-level positions? Then please register your interest on LinkedIn and we will inform you as soon applications are open.
