    Re: Applying for 2019

    Cool. I'm just trying to head off the what should I wear to my interview thread this year. I like to think we're smarter than reddit around here, but every year someone proves me wrong.

    Re: My JET application 2019 (Aus)

    First point, unless told otherwise I would keep everything how it's done in your country. The application and interview is done there, so they're well aware of your country's systems and can't expect...
  6. Re: Letter of Recommendation from Foreign Japanese Teacher

    Please remember, JET isn't the only way to get a job in Japan, and if you're already in Japan, even on a student visa, you've already fought half the battle.

    I would encourage you to take a step...
  7. Re: Letter of Recommendation from Foreign Japanese Teacher

    Wait. I just noticed this. Please tell me you're planning on applying for a CIR position and you haven't been spending x amount of yens on the chance for an ALT position that requires nothing more...
  8. Re: Letter of Recommendation from Foreign Japanese Teacher

    I don't remember if there are any rules about the letter of recommendation being in english. I'm pretty sure everyone who looks at it will be able to read japanese though, so it should be ok as long...

    The whole, "they waste money elsewhere so why worry about this waste" argument is pretty silly to me.

    Re: Applying for 2019

    Well there is the vague goals of "internationalization" and "promoting Japan abroad" for which I see little evidence that JET is to thank for any progress in those areas. However, I acknowledge those...

    Re: Applying for 2019

    Do you honestly think JET isn't a waste of money? For cheaper they could be sending their english teachers abroad for study and training, plus hire more teachers/support staff to reduce the strain on...

    Re: Applying for 2019

    I hate JET, but because it's an ineffective program that is a waste of money. For the average JET it's going to be a happy time for them as they blissfully make Japan worse.

    Re: Time to call it a day

    Is that why the ads are suddenly more intrusive? I mean I hate to use adblockers, but right now the ads are bigger than the posts and can look like a user posted them.
