For the second time, Transitions will be co-hosted by PNWJETAA and USJETAA in a virtual capacity. This year the theme is jobs in Japan and we are featuring information about working in Japan after JET. The event is free and open to JET alumni, as well as non-JETs interested in Japan-related careers.

Check out the recorded sessions from Transitions 2022 here!

We want to add special recognition to our sister event, The 2022 Great Lakes JETAA Career Fair held the weekend before Transitions that concentrated on the US Job Market. You can now view recorded sessions for the 2022 Great Lakes Career Fair here.

Transitions: Opportunities Forum & Networking Expo is the annual career and networking event organized by the Pacific Northwest JET Alumni Association (PNWJETAA). This year, the event is co-hosted by the U.S. JET Programme Alumni Association (USJETAA) to expand Transitions beyond the Pacific Northwest and welcome alumni from other chapters. The event is co-sponsored by The Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR) and the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA (Sasakawa USA).

Transitions is one of PNWJETAA’s biggest events and draws from the experiences of hundreds of JET alumni and members of our community. Whether you are a new returnee or you’ve been back for a few years, it’s our goal to help you explore your options and plan your next steps, regardless of the path you choose to pursue!

While this event is specifically for JET alumni, it’s open to anyone who wishes to attend. As a JET Alumni-produced event, it provides the unique opportunity for individuals who wish to learn more about the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program or organizations doing work related to the Japan-America community.

Participation in Transitions: Opportunities Forum & Networking Expo does not guarantee a job.
