On 26 October, Billund KarriereTour TECH was held, where almost 250 students from VIA Aarhus, VIA Horsens, SDU, Aarhus University, Business Academy Dania, EASV, Rybners, UCL and Business Academy Midwest visited 8 companies in Billund municipality.

On 9 November it was the experience industry's turn, when 250 students from Erhvervsakademi Aarhus, Erhvervsakademi Dania, UCL and Erhvervsakademi SydVest participated in Billund CareerTour TOURISM.

It was a fantastic few days, where interest and enthusiasm were constantly in the air - you could really feel the students' enthusiasm for their subject.

In the afternoon, everyone met at Billund Erhverv (TECH) and LEGO House (TOURISM), where a small hour of mini fair was planned, where the companies were represented with a stand, so that the students could clarify the last questions and make contact with possible future employers.

That's what the students say
