We will be having our next JET networking mixer (and first of the year)! For a change, this will be on a Saturday, as opposed to after work during the work week.
For those who have never been and want to start the new year off with something, well – new, we usually get a group of anywhere between 8 to 15 people. We each give introductions and then spend the rest of the time getting to know each other over drinks and food. But, I’m going to try to occasionally mix things up a bit going forward with a couple of different things like guest speakers, etc…
I highly encourage you to attend and bring a small stack of meishi with you if you have them. These quasi-monthly events are meant to help you build professional relationships (and maybe friendships), which can help you in your career, not just in the immediate present, but also in the future.
Also, feel free to bring a friend(s), whether or not they are JET alumni or affiliated with anything Japan.
Date: Saturday, January 3rd @ 3pm
Where: Eighty-Two – 707 E. 4th Place, LA, CA 90013 (near Little Tokyo)
