JETwit Job Hunter is a new feature started by Autumn Widdoes (Okinawa-ken 2010-14).  Autumn is a writer with a focus on performance and film who will soon return to the job market herself. She’d like to put her four years of experience in Japan to good use in future employment.

WELCOME to the inaugural post of JETwit Job Hunter Profiles.  The purpose of this project is to:

  1. Share profiles of job-hunting JETs and JET alumni, and
  2. Invite JETwit readers to offer suggestions, advice, and any other help, either by posting in the comments section of this post or by contacting the profiled job hunter directly.
  3. The goal is to help everyone find work and increase the rate of post-JET employment, which in turn will make us an even stronger alumni network and community.

Here’s the first profile.  Take a look and see if you can help:

Job HunterLauren Carroll (Mie-ken, 2006-09) is a JET alum  currently seeking employment in the San Francisco Bay area, though she is also open to employment opportunities in other regions of California, Seattle, Colorado, and New Mexico.

Objective:  To work in a cross-cultural industry that uses or taps into her creative background and skills in the fine arts as well as her interest in Japan and international exchange. She would like “to help new international transplants learn about and adjust to the US” and would like to work with Japanese people who are moving to the USA. She is seeking this type of work without the requirement of fluency in Japanese.

Areas of Interest

  • cross-cultural consulting
  • international student advising at the university level
  • international exchange as a coordinator

Job Hunting Strategies:

  • Websites such as HigherEdjobs, JETwit, and Craigslist.
  • Informational interviews with contacts in industries that she is interested in.
  • Letting everyone she  knows know that she is seeking a job in one of these fields.

Challenges:  Lauren has faced the challenge of having to manage an extensive career search while also working full-time at a job that is ending in a month. She feels that the Bay Area is a very competitive job market, though it also offers an incredible amount of opportunities, and that she hopes to make the connections she needs to gain a foothold in the career industries listed above.

Web Presence:


To help this JETwit Job Hunter, post your comments below, or contact Lauren directly.
