    Re: I need out of here.

    I hear good things about Altia Central - they're mainly based in Kansai. I know they require basic-conversational Japanese. They have really fair paid vacation, too.
  2. Re: Preparing for the JET Program Prior to Departure

    Re: 2016 Applications: Placements Megathread

    Nara is inaka af unless you're in the city. But it's close enough to everything else in Kansai so you're prob good. If you're all the way out in southern Nara then you're still like 3 hrs away from...

    Wisdom teeth

    Anyone gotten them out here? I'm going home either summer or winter, so I can always wait it out, but I'm wondering if I should just do it here if it's inexpensive? I've heard they don't put you...

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2016

    Moonbeam I thought you came in 2015, am I totally wrong? Did they just not let you go into the room? I was in group A and I saw a few people without jackets.

    Re: Five years since 3/11

    We had grad prep today and no one mentioned it. The VP called everyone into the staffroom at like 2:40 so I thought for sure we'd do a moment of silence, but it was just a morning meeting part 2....

  12. Re: How are you notified of your JET status in April? Email, mail, or both? JET 2016

    Pretty sure the only place that still does snail mail is the UK? Correct me if I'm wrong but last year I don't think anyone in the US got a letter, only by email, phone, or both.

    Re: How are Interac Osaka schools?

    Most of them are with elementary/middle schools in Sakai. Can't speak from experience but I haven't heard anything too bad about it. I think like 90% of schools in the actual city are privately...

    I mean where I interviewed, they basically looked at your application and pulled questions from that. I know for sure they pulled some questions out of their asses. Like they'd just look at parts of...

    Re: Lack of Japanese Knowledge

    Then I wouldn't worry too much. Sounds like it went pretty well. They literally didn't ask me anyJ apan trivia questions and same with a lot of people.. so clearly there's not really a 'Japan...
  16. Re: Is it possible to survive a not-so-great/bad interview?

    I mean if you did JET and were shortlisted before, you know as much as any of us do about the interview process and shit... even if you don't get in this year, clearly you'd just be using JET this...
  17. Re: Indicate change of location preference at interview?

    Will you know for sure by the interview? They'll probably ask about your preferences anyway so just use that as an excuse to to bring it up. Can't hurt.

    Re: JET or 'real' job?

    As everyone keeps saying, JET really has no upward career path, except maybe for a recent college grad who has no impressive creds on their resume otherwise. Seems like you've built up a pretty nice...

    Re: Vegetarian or Vegan in Japan

    Bingo. That's exactly why we're getting an upgrade. And I know it partially had to do with the diet... she was getting sick a lot because she wasn't very flexible. And it's a big diet switch as it is...

    Re: Vegetarian or Vegan in Japan

    We're expecting a late upgrade here and we just lost a vegan girl... longshot maybe, but that'd be kinda funny if you were taking her spot. She had a suuuuper hard time with her veganism... I think...

    Probably what I'll end up doing. I'm gonna lay low for a little while and see what I can on the major airlines find before buying. Am I looking at the wrong Cathay Pacific? A roundtrip Osaka-Bangkok...
