Teaching After JET

I'm completing my last year on the JET Programme and am interested in learning about teaching jobs and alternative licensing programs open to about-to-be-finished-with-JET seekers of teaching positions.

Participants of the JET Programme usually come out of it with a year or more of experience teaching, or assisting with, English classes in Japanese elementary, junior high, or high schools. Some participants have a teacher's license already, many don't. Some have TEFL/TESL certification, some don't.
I'm particularly interested in learning about:
- teaching jobs that don't require a license/certification
- international schools and other ways a licensed/certified teacher can teach away from home
- alternative licensing programs available outside of the USA
Also, if there are any former JETs out there who've made the leap from JET to full-time teaching, I'd love to hear your stories.
I'm asking these things in the hope that I can help myself and fellow JETs as we prepare to move on career-wise. I'll be using some of the advice and information I get here in a presentation I'm giving about teaching after JET this November.
Thanks in advance!
