As an alumni guest speaker, you would be responsible to provide a brief overview of your JET experience in about 10 minutes. Alumni explain the basics of their placement, their typical day and what they got out of their JET experience, as well as help answer questions during the session. A presentation outline and/or PowerPoint presentation is requested in advance of the presentation date.

If you are interested in volunteering at one of these sessions, please reply with your full name, years on JET (e.g. 2012-2015) and placement location to jet@vc.mofa.go.jp. Please indicate the session you are interested in.
