Date: August 23rd, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM EDT / 10 AM MDT / 9 AM PDT
Are you unsure where to go from here? You've had your JET experience, you gained some skills and did some fabulous stuff but you're not sure what's next? Then please join us as we explore tips for identifying your needs and values, and learning how to weave those together with your international experiences to find a career path! In this webinar, we will identify some of the ways you can highlight your time in Japan, even if you don't want to teach or translate. We will explore some of the ways that living and working abroad can be attractive to employers, and we'll take a peek into why who you are matters in your career development.
Emily Frank graduated from Smith College and was an AET in southern Hokkaido from 1993-1996. After spending a lot of time afterwards feeling lost, she eventually got a master's degree in counseling and now helps others who are similarly lost regarding careers. She spent over 12 years working at a large public university, and has been in private practice since January, 2018. Emily is based in Denver but does distance work with clients from all over the globe. Through generous grants from organizations like the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, she has also been able to offer free career counseling to JET alumni in the past, and has enjoyed reconnecting with fellow JETs that way.
