I was also a participant of the JET Program. In 1989, I was assigned to the City of Yokohama, where I taught at an elementary school, three junior high schools, and one evening technical high school. I found the experience rewarding and picked up a lot of valuable life skills that later helped me in my career. In my talk, I will guide JET participants in taking stock of their greatest strengths and skill sets, and in learning how those skills can best serve a future employer.

On Nov.5th, I attended a reception held at the official residence of the Consul General of Japan, where returning JET participants were officially welcomed by Consul General Seiji Okada. Talks were also given by Dr. Ross King, Head of the UBC Asian Studies Dept. and Mike Dalley, president of JETAABC. More details about the event can be viewed here.
