    Re: 2015 Interview Results

    Well that's the point isn't it? Getting a job is difficult enough at the moment, and that's not including not being fluent at all in the language of wherever I go. I do have other things I want to do...

    Re: 2015 Interview Results

    That last bit is the main thing for me. Living abroad would be a brilliant opportunity and one that gets exponentially harder as you get older and build a life in your country. The idea that I might...

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    Not yet, probably best to not make any assumptions until you get your letter (which on a side note is depressingly thin as it's just one sheet of paper. I don't have the key for my mail box and was...

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    Haven't heard of anyone getting alternate yet, oddly enough.
    Sorry to hear about the interview, good to know you have something to work on if you want to apply again.

    Got my letter today, unfortunately it was a rejection. If anyone's left without a letter today then the twitter says to email them to find out. Best of luck to everybody else.

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    True, but if they were sent at the same time you'd expect to hear of some people who got alternate or rejected, but today we've only heard from shortlisted people.

    Same, that's how it was last year. The twitter says if anyone doesn't get a letter by Friday you can email them to find out. Unfortunately I didn't get a letter so I'm expecting alternate or...

    I'm combing through the archives to see how long last year UK had to wait after America got their results. I hope it's not 4 days, don't know if I could take it!

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    I imagine that interview time is less related to how well they liked you and more to do with how certain they are. If your complete shit or a JET Jesus they won't take long, but if they're less sure...

    In my interview they prempted the news story of the Japanese tourists, probably due to how well published it's been and how little it has to do with the country. I went with the discussions between...

    Just my interview, which only had two interviewees strangely.
    think it went well, but only lasted ten minutes, anyone know if this is cause for concern?
