We recognize that finding a new job is stressful and very exhausting. If you want to stand out and cut through that competition, you’ll need help. Some job opening receive 250 resumes on average and having a game plan or adding to your strategy will definitely help you cut through the competition.

Some of the topics for the 2017 Career Panel:

– How to transition to your next job
– Options for continuing to teach
– How to leverage your JET experience
– How to expand your professional network

There will be two guest speakers and several JET Alumni to help navigate all your questions on your career search. We will also have an informal NETWORKING NIJIKAI immediately after so you can test our your new knowledge and ask further questions. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you,
