Did you know that you may be eligible to work abroad without first getting a job?

If you completed your program at UBC, you might be interested in embarking on this adventure! Both Hong Kong and Japan offer a range of visa programs aimed at attracting recent graduates from overseas. These programs are designed to encourage individuals to work, and in some cases, reside in these regions, contributing to their economic and cultural diversity.

Guest Speakers:

Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto)
Consulate-General of Japan in (Vancouver)

Date: April 24th, 2024
Time: 11 am- 12 pm PDT
Location: CCS 141 or Zoom (Hybrid)
