Participating institutions gave third and fourth grade girls the opportunity to try them out on site. “The number of career opportunities is enormous, and the demands on the labor market are changing rapidly,” Deputy Governor Astrid Eisenkopf said of Burgenland and the state's MONA-NET joint venture. “With MINI Women's Day, we are supporting women in their training and career choices, so they can discover the many opportunities available to them,” emphasized Eisenkopf. Six Burgenland companies presented themselves in live stations to the students.

The focus of Mini Women's Day was on MINT industries (MINT = Mathematics, Computer Science, Natural Sciences and Technology). “Choosing a career is not easy, but it is very important because you spend most of your life at work,” Eisenkopf explained. MINT careers offer good income, better job opportunities and long-term career prospects.

Through this initiative, students can gain insights into various career fields in live stations, try and experiment.”
