Google Tour & Employee Panel:
Every summer, ICAN partners up with the VGN (Vietnamese Googler Network) to host a career day where attendees are taken on an exclusive tour of the main Google campus, invited to ask and listen for advice from a diverse panel of 10+ Google employees, and lastly enjoy a free lunch at the cafeterias alongside those mentors! While learning about the history of Google and exploring that campus is very interesting, the highlight of the workshop is when participants are able to hear the different stories of current employees, ranging from Computer Science to Design, that all come from different countries and backgrounds during the panel.
Teaming up and meeting with members of the Vietnamese community is an important aspect of treasuring our culture and it's inspiring to learn that Vietnamese traditions are being celebrated and integrated over at the company culture at Google!
