The Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring is hosting a 2023 Webinar Series on Effective Student Mentoring for college and higher-education populations.
The next webinar in the series is titled Entering the World of Work: Strategies for Mentoring Immigrant-Origin Latino/a College Graduates, and will be led by Dr. Vanessa Delgado, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington State University.
Children of immigrants now make up a significant proportion of young adults who pursue college degrees; however, we know very little about their transition from college to the workforce and how to best support these transitions. This talk will explore how college-educated immigrant origin Latino/a young adults transitioned into the world of work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Longitudinal qualitative data is used to underscore how immigration policies, COVID-19, education-occupation mismatches, and low socioeconomic origins complicate the workforce transitions for college-educated Latinos/as. Implications of the research will be discussed.
