JET Programme Internship (for Companies)


The JET Programme Internship seeks to connect Japanese companies looking for global personnel, with JET participants who want the opportunity to advance their post-JET career in Japan.

For Companies

JET Programme participants are talented individuals who possess excellent multilingual and intercultural communication skills and understand the structure and culture of Japanese work environments. Please consider hosting an intern as part of your company’s efforts to energise or internationalise its business or explore areas where global personnel can excel within your company. (Offices where the language of communication is primarily Japanese are preferred).

Please check out testimonials from companies who’ve taken JET Programme interns in the past.
