On September 8, 2018, at the UCF Rosen School of Hospitality in Orlando, Florida, our Career Development Workshop was a success. Thank you to all of our presenters and attendees. You made the event possible!

Several presenters, who specialize in career coaching and professional development, shared their insights on how to put your best step forward into the professional world. Some highlights included the importance of creating your personal brand, developing an elevator pitch, breaking out into small groups for brief introductions and examining the Florida job market. Careers involving US-Japan relations were also explored.

The Workshop was followed by a reception hosted by the Consulate-General of Japan in Miami. Treated to an authentic spread of Japanese cuisine, attendees were able to make connections, new and old, with other JET alumni as well as with representatives from several Japanese companies.

Several attendees posed for professional head shots after the event and those will also be delivered by email shortly.
