Ok! So I should be flying out tomorrow for Columbus to spend a few quality days with my old roommate! I'm guessing non-stop drinking lol. And then off to Philly to visit my other old roomie and my current roomie! I'm super excited. I've never been to the eastcoast before! I'm only nervous because I am flying standby, so my seat is not guaranteed, and it seems Denver has an influx of outgoing traffic at the moment. I really hope seats stay open so I can get to ohio!
-Motivation for Participation: The essay should state your reasons for wishing to participate in the JET Program, why you want to go to Japan, and why you are interested in the ALT or CIR position .
- Relevant Experience: Please also make a case for your selection by describing your past/present experiences, professional skills, relevant interests and personal qualities, and how you feel these will be useful to you as an ALT or CIR. (ie. For ALTs: teaching experience, favorite teaching methods, etc...For CIRs: event coordinating experience, counseling or mediation skills, etc...)
- Goals: Also address what you hope to gain, both personally and professionally, and what effect you hope to have on the Japanese community and internationally as a result of your participation in the JET Program.
I hope it's ok :/
