Do you like to talk? Do you like to talk about your time in Japan? Do you like having a captive audience?
If so, there are two great opportunities for you!
1. JET Recruiting:
It’s fall, and that means it’s JET Recruiting time. This is our key season to drum up interest in the JET application for next year. We will be hosting JET information sessions at universities across the state and may need help from JET alumni in informing potential applicants about JET, answering questions, handing out brochures, and just sharing their own experiences. Alumni who help with recruiting will be provided with a PowerPoint presentation, brochures, various other recruiting materials, help with setting up a time and location, and a $50 honorarium. There are limited numbers of honorariums, so that limits the number of information sessions we can do with alumni. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested (note: that email address will be changing in the near future, so if it does not work, call the consulate at (305) 530-9090 and ask to speak with the JET Coordinator).
2. School Visits:
The consulate often does school visits around Miami Dade and Broward counties, but we occasionally get requests from schools too far away for us to be able to get to or that request us to come when we are not available. In these cases, we would like to be able to provide the names and contact information of nearby JET alumni who may be interested in talking about Japan. Again, please email email@example.com if interested (or call the consulate in Miami if that email address is no longer working). If this is something you already do, please register with us so that we can keep track of it. We can also offer limited numbers of $50 honorariums, so why not be rewarded for your volunteer work?
