Emily Yocom (She/Her)CIR, Tokushima, Tokushima, 2019-2020 JETAANY
My name is Emily Yocom, and I am a recent returnee of the JET Program (2019-2020). I was a CIR in the Tokushima Prefectural Government in Tokushima Prefecture, where I worked with the International Sports Exchange Division to translate and interpret for foreign sports teams in preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. I returned from JET last month and have been seeking employment in the US-Japan nonprofit and international education sectors, preferably allowing me to return to Japan in the near future. I am interested in networking with former JETs who have made a career in these sectors.
