Description

Join us as three JET alumni share their own unique experiences and discuss what it's like to work for the JET Program. Speakers include: Maggie Thorpe, Jessica Record, and Kiyomi Mozley.

The JET Program is a competitive employment opportunity that allows young professionals to live and work in cities, towns, and villages throughout Japan. Being a JET is an opportunity to work and to represent the United States as cultural ambassadors to Japan. Most participants serve as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) and work in public and private schools throughout Japan; some work as Coordinators for International Relations (CIRs) as interpreters/translators.
