Professional Development Guide

No matter what prefecture you landed in, you didn’t leave your interests, passions, and activities behind in your home country. Whether you are a CIR, ALT or SEA, you are likely not single-mindedly passionate about your work and are looking for other forms of fulfillment or enrichment. Hopefully, you already know that regardless of where you are in the world, being active and pursuing your interests can be both personally and professionally fulfilling. If you want to volunteer, learn Japanese, gain a new skill, get a master’s degree, or whatever else you can envision, there are ways to do it on the JET Programme.

In the words of the late Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it.” Prepare for life after JET with the help of AJET’s Professional Development Guide!
