To respond to the mutual interests of both JET Programme participants seeking employment in Japan and companies/organisations seeking multilingual, global personnel by providing a place to meet in Japan, CLAIR hosts career fairs in major cities in Japan with the cooperation of local and foreign chambers of commerce.
Each year, a career fair has been held concurrently with the After-JET Conference (AJC) which is held within the Greater Tokyo Area during February or March. However, in recent years, CLAIR has also been hosting additional career fairs in other cities in Japan such as Fukuoka and Osaka. Please refer to the summary below for information about where career fairs will be hosted next.
As participation is voluntary, each participant must bear travel, accommodation, and other related costs of attending the career fair by themselves. In addition, each JET participant who wishes to attend the career fair must obtain permission from their supervisor so that it does not negatively interfere with their work duties. As a general rule, only JET participants in their final year of the programme (participants who have submitted their reappointment paperwork indicating that they do not request reappointment) may participate.
Information about registration for the career fairs is sent directly to JET Programme participants via email around the end of November or beginning of December. Please make sure your contact information is up to date if you would like to receive an invitation.
If you are a company or organisation interested in exhibiting at a career fair, please refer to the PDF below.
