    Default New JET Program website for USA

    Hi everyone,

    In case you don't already know, the website for the USA JET Program was updated yesterday.

    I know many people always complained about the out dated nature of the old website, so you will be happy to know that we finally got approval to change it to look like our other consulate/embassy pages. We have a certain template and program we have to use, so we are still somewhat limited.

    At any rate, the guidelines are up (we are still working on the application which I know was supposed to be up today, but there have been some glitches).

    Hopefully the application will be up shortly as well. The deadline will be adjusted if necessary.

    The official website of the JET Program USA

    P.S. Don't forget to refresh your browser if the old page still comes up. Enjoy!

    -MC

    Looking good! I'm glad they gave you approval to update it in the end.

    Just went to look at it and was surprised to see a different site. Thought I clicked the wrong link at first! Looks great I have to admit, a giant step up from the old one.

    I went to see one of my letter of recommendation writers the other day and when she pulled up the site her first reaction was "This looks shady as hell..." haha. Was a long time coming it seems.

    Haha, i never used yahoo group personally, but i know other coordinators used it. Many used google groups as well, but the tokyo ban hammer came down on us and now that is blocked at all consulates. Last year a few of us tried private sub reddits, facebook groups, and i used a google site to.give everyone their documents. We are still trying to feel out whats best for everyone.

    I'm really quite impressed; it looks good, seems quite professional, and is legitimately informative and helpful. Excellent work!

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    I almost cried tears of joy at the lack of papyrus and iframes in this website. Great job! It looks very clean and professional, and more in line with what the Canadian and UK sites look like.

    Not quite sure how I feel about the top part spanning across the whole page. I kind of like margins and dead space on the sides of my webpages. Granted, the actual body of the page has that dead space, but I think it clashes a bit with the top part in this case.

    I'm just being picky I guess ... Looks good!

    Well, It's not the Canadian JET website, but at least it doesn't look like it's as old as the JET programme is anymore :P

    You can't really complain that last one looked like someone made it on AOL back in 96.
    Good job.
    Everything I have ever said was a lie, and that's the truth.
