Life on JET doesn’t continue forever. Apart from settling back home and dealing with possible reverse culture shock, finding work in a new environment and culture will be a challenge.

With this in mind, we continue to develop initiatives to provide better careers and networking support for our JET alumni. We run career workshops aimed towards recent JET returnees, although any JET alumni who are job seekers are welcome to register and attend. We cover the following topics such as:

  • Resume creation
  • How to talk about JET on your resume
  • Interview practice and tips
  • Q&A with JET alumni

We also have our Networking Night as a companion event to the Careers Workshop. We have another networking end-of-year event which is a more informal and social affair, held in November or early December.

Check out our job board below. Like or follow our social media accounts for more updates (Twitter, Facebook Page and Linkedin).

If you’re thinking of getting started on LinkedIn to create your profile, LinkedIn has provided a presentation as a guide on why and how to use LinkedIn.
