This page has been archived and remains for posterity, please see Locating your successor or predecessor. For a guide to leaving JET, see the Leaving JETs article.

This page is designed to help incoming JETs (successors) find outgoing JETs (predecessors) who are working in the position they are due to inherit. For the opposite, see the Incoming JETs page. Some incoming JETs have a lot of difficulty in contacting their predecessors so this page is aimed at making the process easier.

Outgoing JETs should leave their details here, and when the incoming JETs get their placement information they can search this page and get in touch with the right person.

Note: 2007 information has been moved to Outgoing JETs 2007.


Outgoing JETsEdit

1) Create an account - just choose a username and password. Don't forget to include your e-mail address if you wish to be contacted via e-mail. Your e-mail address will not be publically viewable.
2) Return to this page and add your details to the relevant prefecture in the following format:
* [[City/town/village name]], ALT/CIR/SEA, [[Special:Emailuser/WikiJET username|WikiJET username]] - Other info
So for an ALT in Beppu city who registered BananaMan as their username this would produce:
3) Sit tight and wait to be contacted. If you already know some information about your successor, take a look at the Incoming JETs page to see if you can find them.

Incoming JETsEdit

1) Search the list below with the placement information you have.
2) Once you think you have found your placement, click the associated username (e.g. BananaMan), fill out the form and click "Send".
