I worked at JET Program full-time (More than 3 years)
Developed life-long relationships with an international community.
Gained transferrable skills including public speaking, curriculum development, teaching, editing, and coordination skills
Placement is out of your control so the experience varies wildly.
Applied for JET on their website, in February I had an interview. The first part was the reading comprehension section. I read it twice once silently and then out loud. I was then asked questions about what I read. I was then asked more questions in Japanese about my interests. After that I was given standard interview questions in English like "Why JET instead of some other exchange program?"
