JET Internship Programme
A Work Experience Programme At Japanese Companies for JET Participants Looking to Advance Their Career

JET Internship Programme

To increase opportunities for internationally-minded JET Programme participants who are interested in continuing to work in Japan after JET to meet companies/organisations looking for global human resources, CLAIR is implementing the JET Internship Programme.

Benefits for JET Participants:
It is our hope that JET Programme participants can utilise these work experiences to attain a better understanding of the kinds of global personnel Japanese companies and organisations are seeking and reexamine their professional aspirations for the benefit of their own job-searching activities after finishing the JET Programme.

Benefits for Companies:
JET Programme participants are talented individuals who possess excellent communication skills and understand the structure and culture of Japanese work environments. If you are a company with offices located in Japan, please consider hosting an intern as part of your company’s efforts to internationalize its business or explore areas where global personnel can excel within your company.
