If interested in participating, please contact him at email@example.com.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.
