"If you want to win the best for yourself, you have to convince them with attractive offers. Since there are searches for information about interesting jobs with development opportunities on the internet today, we opted for a virtual career fair."

Dorothee Enbergs - LVR Commercial Director and CEO, LVR Clinics Viersen, Orthopedics Viersen, Mönchengladbach


The career fair was designed to serve as a meeting platform for specialists in psychiatry and nursing as well as medical students. The aim was to give professionals and new candidates a chance to reorient themselves or to find out more about the status quo simply and directly. An online experience with all the features of a traditional trade fair, and without any compromises.


In this case, meetyoo‘s platform for virtual events was the right solution with the necessary features for uncomplicated online communication. There was an information booth, trade fair booths by individual clinics, a lounge including public lounge chat to establish contacts, an auditorium with keynote speeches and opportunities for personal discussions between experts and interested visitors. Clinic staff met guests as avatars at virtual booths, and offered conversations via text, audio or video chats. Group discussions and individual discussions were possible.


LIKE Psychiatry 2019 combined the interactive possibilities of a digital platform with a comprehensive preparation of information for a broad audience – without travel expenses and costs for participants. The concept was implemented successfully, which is also measurable in terms of user numbers. A total of 1,146 people attended the event on the two trade fair days. The feedback was consistently positive and the subsequent on-demand availability of the event was convenient for many visitors with scheduling conflicts. The innovative format of the first LIKE psychiatry was so well received by all parties involved that the second LIKE psychiatry will already take place at the beginning of February 2021.
