The day of the event
On the day of the seminar, after watching a video produced by glolab entitled “The Basics of Visa Status” (with English subtitles) with the students, we used worksheets to introduce the different types of visa statuses and points to be aware of when seeking employment after graduation.
In the latter half of the session, coordinator Li Shu introduced her own experience and stressed the importance of thinking about what students want to do after graduation and preparing for it.
At the end of the workshop, the students asked us to come back again, and we felt that we were getting closer to each other little by little.
glolab will continue to provide opportunities for high school students with immigrant background to broaden their perspectives and deepen their thinking about themselves and their careers. If you have any inquiries or requests to hold a career workshop for high school students with immigrant background, please contact us.
