Thursday, October 29, 2020 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Add to calendar

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 a cultural ambassador 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.

Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree in any field by the time of departure for the program and Coordinators for International Relations must also have a high level of proficiency in the Japanese language.

Before logging into the info session please watch a thrilling overview of JET and how to apply at:
