Forum: Aspiring and Applying

Non-Official JET Applying Forum. Applying for JET or another ALT position this year? Missing the old "Aspiring" forums from Official? You've come to the right place! Feel free to ask questions, solicit advice, or seek help of any sort with the JET application process here. We'll be glad to help!

  1. Going through the way-too-long misery of the JET Program application process? Read what previous applicants and JETs have said! You can read old SOPs here, pore through a treasure trove of advice and tips, and see what has worked (and what hasn't) in the past.
