Over the summer, Verité welcomed eight interns to work on projects across multiple departments. Summer interns made meaningful contributions to our organization, from helping us integrate gender perspectives into our work to researching the role of labor brokers across sectors, in addition to other interesting and important work.
Verité conducted desk and field research to map out how jobseekers in Cambodia, Myanmar, and Lao PDR learn about jobs in Thailand, weigh risk factors and choose among the routes open to them. Through interviews with people on or connected with this journey, a picture emerged of a highly complex arena in which the needs of jobseekers, job-finders, employers, regulators, facilitators, and profiteers meet.
