    Re: Reasons for not receiving an interview?

    I was talking with a dude at a dinner at the local Japanese consulate. He said he used to work for the Japanese embassy in Ottawa and that he did a lot of their Jet Programme work.

    He told me...

    Re: Best cities to list as preference?

    I just wanted to say that if you and your buddies end up near a Shinkansen station, it won't be too difficult to meet up. Even if you guys are pretty far apart, you could probably meet up within...

    Re: Using Unlocked Iphone with Sim card in Japan

    Amen. I didn't get access to the Internet at my schools, and I burned through a lot of data doing my work.



    Yeah, but if your ISP's modem doesn't come WiFi ready, you can buy a router for less...

    Re: HELP CHOOSING LOCATION?

    I lived in Yamaguchi and loved it. Mind you, I lived 8 minutes away from a Shinkansen stop. That was nice.

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    I'll keep trying. I've applied for an entry level position with the foreign affairs department, but they're tough to get.

    Also, I'm getting close to 4K.

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    Slowly. Applying for government work sucks. I am not looking for interim work. Unemployment makes me want to end my life.

    Re: What do you do when you get homesick?

    Jogging and biking always put me in a really good mood. They allowed me to explore my little city and it kind of made it feel like home.

    Also, go out for beers with friends! Like Mr. Charisma...

    I can't imagine many Jets flyjin if they don't have the cash to go home though. Have you heard many instances of this happening?

    Re: Japan and Phones

    Thanks, I figured as much.

    My apartment still smells a bit like cigarettes, so the least I can do is leave him with a few beers and the phone.

    No, at this point your chances are slim to none.

    If someone does hightail it and refuses to pay for their airfare and the orientation, I guess the CO is pretty much shit out of luck, right?

    I'm told you have to be there in person to cancel the contract. Softbank must do this to screw with foreigners.

    If I can't get my iphone unlocked, would my pred be able to use it? At the very least, would it have value as a trade in for him?

    Is there anything I should know? Do you guys have any advice?
