Learn to Blog

JetWit.com founder (and former JETAA NY Newsletter editor) Steven Horowitz (Aichi-ken, 1992-94) is planning an informal class to show JET alums how to set up and use a blog. If interested in participating, please contact him at professional@jetaany.org.Date and location TBD after gauging the level of interest. Make sure to include your prefecture, years on JET and a line or two about why you’re interested.Blogging is not just a place to write your daily journal. It’s a job skill, a portfolio booster and a way to bootstrap yourself into a job or freelance work. If you’ve thought about learning but aren’t sure what to do or how to get started or how to use it to your advantage, then hopefully this will be helpful.The goal behind this is to help JET alums develop necessary skills for the current job market. If you have other ideas for ways to help out JET alums, feel free to share them via email to professional@jetaany.org.
