Great program to learn about internationalization
The key phrase that you have to remember when working on the JET Program is that "every situation is different". I love this place and have not regretted the 5 years that I have spent first as an Assistant Language Teacher and later as a Prefectural Advisor. The most enjoyable part of the job is connecting with people from all over the world. While you are mainly working closely within the Japanese community, you also have the opportunity to connect with people who are from many different countries. I learned so much about communication, perspective, and life during my time here. The only con I would list is that there really is not much chance for growth and upward mobility. However, the experience gained is priceless.
