Looking to recruit talented, ambitious and internationally-minded individuals with experience working in Japanese organisations and familiarity with Japan’ s unique business culture? The 2022 JET Programme Career Fairs is your chance!

What is the JET Programme?

The Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme is administered through the collaboration of Japan’ s local government authorities, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), and the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR). Aiming primarily to promote grassroots internationalisation at the local level, the JET Programme invites young college graduates from around the world to participate in internationalisation initiatives and be involved in foreign language education at Japan’s local government offices, Boards of Education, elementary schools, junior high schools, and senior high schools. The JET Programme has gained high acclaim both domestically and overseas for being one of the world’ s largest international exchange programmes.

This year’s JET Programme Career Fairs will be held virtually using the Remo platform, and will be attended by around 300 current JET Programme participants who are looking for business opportunities in Japan.
