We have a great opportunity for JET Alumni to speak at a local college about applying to JET! If you are a recent returnee who hasn’t found full-time work yet, this is the perfect way to build some connections and give back to the community. It’s also really fun (as you’ll see from the photo from a past CUNY Fair above)! The students get really excited hearing from us and it’s nice to have an excuse to be natsukashi about our JET experience.

If you are available and interested, please email Pam Kavalam at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have two volunteer spots for each event, so please send me your full name and JET prefecture and years. No need to worry about what to prepare- the Consulate and I will chat with you about what we should have at the table. One thing that’s great is bringing Japan pictures and paraphernalia- the students really liked seeing that.
