    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    Thank you for the clarification! Yes, I agree it would be cheating to apply twice. The webpage does make it sound like applicant can only apply from the original country he/she hails from.

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    So I was deciding if I was going to apply again this year for the JET program so I read the requirement page and found this "Applicants who have dual nationality with countries other than Japan may...
  5. Re: JET rejection - ALT/eikaiwa plan B questions?

    In the same boat as Franklint, found out I didn't get a Jet interview so I started looking at other options. I looked at Interact website today, they say they are always hiring but on their graph for...

    Sticky: Re: Word's Formerly Secret Interview Advice

    Thanks for sharing your experience and advice Word.

    Any interview I have been on before the interviewer is more interested in your personality than whatever you have written down on your resume....
  8. Re: So, where do you stand with your 2014 application?

    Jet website clearly states that application "must be received by the JET Office at the Embassy of Japan in Washington, DC."
  9. Re: So, where do you stand with your 2014 application?

    I got my confirmation card today (they got my package Friday or Monday depending if I go by USPS or JET) so you should probably get your confirmation card next week since they go thru them in order...

    I asked my Japanese prof few years back to write me a referral but she told me she couldn't because she is Japanese. Now granted I graduated like 2-3 yrs earlier but I took 3 classes with her and she...

    Re: 2014 JET - Letter of Reference

    Since we're on the topic of References, I was wondering if the Jet Program actually contacts your references?
  12. Re: So, where do you stand with your 2014 application?

    I had interview that same day (funny enough an hour before deadline for application) and I could give 2 shits if I got that job or not.

    I guess its a crazy concept to expect tracking to work like...
  13. Re: So, where do you stand with your 2014 application?

    It's a pretty involved application for a job that "you don't give a shit about". Usually if a job requires more than sending a resume I ignore it or just send a resume and ignore the rest of the...
  14. Re: So, where do you stand with your 2014 application?

    I'm in the same boat as you shipman. My package got there on Friday and my tracking says that "a note has been left" and I'm wondering if that's considered "received". I have emailed the embassy...
