    Hi everyone, congrats to all on being accepted. To danielallen, congrats on your placement. I'm based in Matsuura which is the next town over from Hirado and I know all the Hirado JETs really well. It's a great placement. If you have any questions just drop me a line.

    Sydneysiders, check your mailboxes. I just received a big package from the consulate!

    What's "completely random" about it?

    Don't get me wrong, in paper my placement looks pretty good to me and I'm satisfied. It just wasn't really close to any of my requested places - but that's how JET works.

    If being "random" is a hobby of yours and you enjoy posting regularly on social media sites about it, you'll fit right in om JET.

    I think "not related to the places I requested at all" is a fairly reasonable use of the word "random" guys, step down.

    Yes I enjoy randomness as much as I enjoy reading snide remarks on online forums from people who should be doing something better with their time.

    Got my placement email. Says Hyogo, Perth's sister city and earthquake area. Woo woo. Nothing specifying anymore detail than that as yet. Have yet to have a chance to check my PO box. For other aussies, did you guys have specific placements in the email, or did it come in the pack?
