What is JETAABC J-Link?

As JET Programme alumni, we are always connected to each other via our JET experience. Many of our fellow JETs have gone on to do amazing things, and JETAABC J-Link was established as another way to further connect the JET community on a professional level, beyond JET.

This public directory provides an opportunity for JET alumni to explore various industries and organizations, and then connect with a fellow member of the JET community who has experience in the field. Within J-Link you will find profiles of alumni which includes their background, industry expertise, advice for new returnees, and a way to connect.

J-Link was originally created by PNWJETAA and has since expanded to a National J-Link Directory for US JETs. While J-Link is just starting out in Canada, we are looking to eventually grow this network across the country so that we can continue to provide resources and support for each other.
