    Oats rolls out the wittiest ITIL comment in months and it's in a thread where no-one will read it :(

    Re: Grad School Post-JET

    Did it in 2 weeks but that was the UK.

    Thirding the other opinions, once you leave JET it really hits home what a waste of time career-wise it was. You'll want to catch up asap.

    Re: Applying to companies simultaneously?

    Altia Central is one that might work reasonably well alongside the Jet app as they have a September intake. It seems to be a much better deal than the likes of Interac as well.

    Re: TEFL with a practicum or volunteer?

    You're here for an extended holiday and to slam as much poon as possible. A TEFL won't make much difference at all to your app or your time here

    Re: Tips for beating the heat

    I used to fill the sink in the toilet with cold water and dip my balls in there. Worked not bad if only for a short time

    Re: Placement preference question

    I'm not sure it would make much difference. The spectrum-dweller that replaced me on Jet was coming over for his "girlfriend" (Xmas cake 10 years his senior) one prefecture south. He talked about her...

    Re: The Somewhat Late 2017 Placements Thread

    Yeah but come on, our fear of the adult world and minor issues with self-loathing wouldn't be a drop in the ocean for this guy.

    Re: The Somewhat Late 2017 Placements Thread

    It's utterly astonishing how a supposedly "prestigious" and "highly competitive" endeavour like JET can choose so many people with obvious personality disorders.

    Re: The Somewhat Late 2017 Placements Thread

    I love how that blogger thinks he "literally beat out tens of thousands of people" for one of only a few positions.

    The odds of application success on JET are much higher than any other job we'll...

    Re: Quitting JET (the horror)

    Can't remember this thread from 1st time round. Mildly entertaining.

    OP sounded like a neurotic tool and the "dream job" a scam, no doubt it got entertaining.

    Similar thing happened to me but she left me anyway after I shagged her grandad up the chuffer.
  12. Re: Are there students you teach that you just dislike or are not fond of?

    Maybe the kids just started to find you irritating after a year with you?
  13. Re: Are there students you teach that you just dislike or are not fond of?

    Had you reached the tickly bit by the time the truth clicked?
  14. Re: Are there students you teach that you just dislike or are not fond of?

    I used to to a speds school and it was the ones in wheelchairs I couldn't stand. Always taking up room in the corridors and usually not the smartest.

    Re: Shortlisted but no passport! Help!

    In UK we use proper manual transmission cars, plus our test is on public roads and a bit more difficult than "drive in a straight line through this empty piece of tarmac."

    It takes months and...

    Quite likely a good long-term plan but be 100% certain you want to be a teacher before doing the training. I quite enjoyed Jet, started teacher training after I got home and absolutely hated it. The...

    Re: Shortlisted, but unsure

    Sounds like you've not really decided what to do with your life yet, so if your current job is just "ok" it's probably worth trying Jet for a year. Your age isn't really an issue and a year out to...

    Could you keep a finger in the pie of the editing stuff on freelance? Depending on placement you might have plenty of time to keep doing editing on the side.

  22. Re: Regards to Mental Condition on the Application

    What prefecture or vague region if you don't mind me being ghoulish? I knew a few Jets that were on the brink when I left a couple of years ago but I don't do Facebook.

    Sounds like the kind of light bulb the genkiest of the genki would come up with at SDC, only for red tape and a lack of enthusiasm from both teachers and students to prevent it going anywhere.

    Re: Moving House

    And act like a functioning adult rather than a spoiled and mollycoddled child? How long is it since you were on Jet?
