Hi everyone, our names are Justin and Amy and we are currently JETs living in Southern Japan. We wanted to give you guys a heads up that applications for the 2018 Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) ASSISTANT LANGUAGE TEACHERS (ALT) position will be released in September-November depending on your home country. BUT that doesn't mean you can't start researching and preparing now!

So if you're interested in teaching English to Japanese students, looking to be a cultural ambassador that represents your country, or looking to travel and experience life in Japan then you’d be interested in applying for the JET Programme!

**Program Overview
The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme, commonly called JET Programme, is a Japanese government initiative that has been running for 30 years. The JET Programme brings university graduates, mainly from English-speaking countries, to Japan as assistant language teachers, coordinators for international relations and sports exchange advisers.

**Salary
3.36 million yen first year (Around $32,000 U.S before tax)
3.6 million in the second year
3.9 million in the third year
3.96 million for the fourth and fifth year.

**Requirements
-Hold at least a Bachelor's degree or obtain such qualifications by the designated date prior to departure.
-Be listed as one of the 40 countries participating
-Be both mentally and physically healthy.

The process can be quite long but it's totally worth it if you really want to travel, meet new people, learn Japanese culture/traditions or even study Japanese!

Good luck^^

Don't forget that minor detail of working 9-5, five days a week. JET program is not a sightseeing tour or study trip.
