Are you looking for a job or thinking about exploring new career options?

Are you interested in getting more involved in the community?

Are you thinking about graduate school or continuing education programs?

Do you want to expand your network?

If any or all of these apply to you, then you need to attend PNWJETAA’s annual career/networking event: Transitions: Opportunities Forum & Networking Expo!

The Pacific Northwest Chapter of the JET Alumni Association will be hosting its annual fall event, “Transitions 2016: Opportunities Forum & Networking Expo“. This program was created specifically to serve our members by providing guidance and support to returning JETs as they acclimate to life back home.  However, over the years as our alumni chapter has grown and matured, Transitions has likewise evolved in order to offer valuable programing for all of our members who may be seeking new opportunities or exploring new career options.
