USJETAA will be holding a networking session for anyone currently working in or interested in working in the foreign or civil service. Join USJETAA, our speakers from the webinar on careers in foreign service, and other JET alumni working in the field to ask questions and learn about their experiences. We will be using breakout sessions for networking in small groups.
Are you interested in a career in the Foreign Service or learning more about the work of Foreign Service Officers? Please join USJETAA for a keynote address from Karen Kelley, the former Consul General in Osaka, and panel discussion along with Michael Turner, Culture & Sports Attache at the US Embassy Tokyo, and Katherine Tarr, former Coordinator for Japan and Korea in the Office of Public Diplomacy, East Asian Pacific.

The JET experience is a life-changing one, and when you return home, you may feel confused and/or stressed about the job search, specifically for jobs that allow you to use your Japanese. Join this seminar if you’re still on or already done with the JET Program, and learn some key tips about job searching.
