    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    Thanks its more frustration than anything. i was an alternate last year but I have been so busy this year I had little time to improve my application, they may have thought it was too similar.

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    Well I got my rejection letter today. Guess the interac seminar on saturday is my last hope. Better make sure I know what to do.

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    Hi I'm in the same boat, heard on the 6th of Jan last year but still no word now. I still have an interac assessment on the 24th so I have a backup at least.

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I think Friday was pretty much the last point for any UK alternates to be upgraded. The letter we received stated as much. Ah well congrats to all those who managed to get it, enjoy it for the rest...

    Well I still need to go over what I need them to do specifically but yeah you're right and it will be a huge weight off my mind too get that done. I'm only going to make minor tweaks to my SOP (based...

    Well I got my last set of references from a previous job but my new managers are pretty happy to do a write up so I figured I'll go with them. I may touch base with my old boss to see if he would be...

    I'm in the same boat as you. I've actually started getting references ready for next years applications now because it does look like its all finished UK side.

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Well there seems to be nothing in the UK and the pre departure orientation info has gone out so I am sadly inclined to call it for my country. I'll just reapply next year.

    Finally got a SAR response, any UK alternates know if it should just be one sheet that says there are no records for you on the PNC?

    Re: UK Applicants - Results Info 2014

    Good to know I guess (although I was holding on to the fact that the reason I hadn't got a phone call was because those weren't in yet so yay more nerves now)

    I need to get my SAR done. Is that the form you print off and fill in or is it an online application?

    I'm sorry to hear that pal :( I'm sure you'll get there eventually, hell with interac you would probably touch down in Tokyo before we humble alternates even get a phonecall.

    Re: UK Applicants - Results Info 2014

    From what I have read it seems to depend on where you are placed (how much rent, key money needed etc.), I think I heard a rough estimate of around £1000-1500 to get started but take that with a...

    Do you mean they were told right after the interview or the letter they received said they had not been accepted?

    UK alternate here from Manchester, relieved to not be outright rejected but still a little bummed out for the new waiting game about to start. Any others from the North West in the same boat?

    I know exactly how you feel. In some ways this waiting period will be worse as it will depend on what other people do not us, we have even less control this time. Still at least being on the reserve...
