View Full Version : JoyTalk & AMITY Query...

April 12th, 2009, 05:38
Hi there,

Researching quite a few alternatives to JET, though JET would be far and away my Number 1 choice....

I simply have a question on AMITY and JoyTalk -

AMITY - the interview areas seem to be only USA - if someone from Ireland applies, is there perchance any hope of interviewing in the Japanese consulate here?

JoyTalk - just wondering, do they hire all year around, or, is March/April the one and only time each year they take on new ALT's?

Many thanks for any thoughts on these,

Much appreciated.

Amity is a private company and is not affiliated with the Japanese government, so no, you won't be able to interview at a Japanese consulate. As for JoyTalk, it seems to be an ALT dispatch company, so I'd say that their hiring period is limited, perhaps to March/April, that I'm not sure of..

Shouldn't this thread be in 'non-JET teaching'?

Irelandcalling4 you might find your question already answered in one of the threads over there...
