JETAA London – Pre-Departure Event
On Friday 20 July the London Chapter hosted a pre-departure gathering for outgoing JETs. The event followed the pre-departure orientation and embassy reception, and many took the short walk over to the Marquis Cornwallis to meet JET alumni and get advice based on first-hand experience (and be introduced to the concept of NIJIKAI!)
It was a wonderful opportunity for the outgoing JETs to meet JET alumni, ranging from the very first JET year to the more recent 2017 returnees, and ask any questions they have around their move to Japan and the opening of the JET chapter in their life.
The air was buzzing with excitement and anticipation from the outgoing JETs and plenty of natsukashii from the alumni. A big thank you to everyone who came! I hope it was an invaluable experience and you made some great connections.
To the outgoing JETs:
HAVE THE BEST TIME IN JAPAN AND ON THE JET PROGRAMME, and please do not forget us on your return! The London Chapter will continue to organise events and we hope to see more and more of you there. Keep an eye on the events calendar and Facebook page for updates, and get in touch if you are a JET alumni and would like to be involved in the annual Careers Day which will be held on Friday 20 September.
