JET Information Session at Pitt, September 22.

The University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center is hosting a Japan Exchange and Teaching [JET] Programme Information Session on Tuesday, September 22. The JET Programme places native English speakers in Japanese classrooms.
Are you graduating soon? Wondering what your next adventure could be? Learn about the Japan Exchange & Teaching (JET) Program. It is a great opportunity for college graduates to work in Japan as Assistant Language Teacher (ALT), Coordinators for International Relations (CIR), or Sports Exchange Advisors (SEA).
An overview of the JET Programme, from the official site:
Aiming primarily to promote grass-roots internationalisation at the local level, the JET Programme invites young college graduates from around the world to participate in international exchange work 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 internationally for being one of the world’s largest international exchange programmes. We hope that all people involved in the JET Programme, both the participants and the local people they live and work with, will build an international network and become successful in today’s global society.
The presenter is Pittsburgh JET Alumni Association President Smitha Prasadh, and the event runs from 4:00 to 5:00 pm in 4130 Posvar Hall (map).
