  1. Re: That "Proposed Direction of Career" Question on Application

    Yeah man, I mean this has been the best job I've ever had- but I didn't go in with much of any expectations. The people who think they know "all about Japan" or have these idealized perceptions are...
  2. Re: That "Proposed Direction of Career" Question on Application

    If you're not quite sure what you'll be doing after your time in Japan, just imagine your ideal career involving your major and describe how JET would be an asset in making that happen.

    To answer...

    Re: Not Invited to Enkais

    I've got about 70 teachers in the staffroom. I'd say I'm on good terms with all of my JTEs, we seem to get along really well. My supervisor, on the other hand constantly neglects to tell me anything....

    Not Invited to Enkais

    Hello all! Not a major problem here, but I have a sneaking suspicion that my school has had an enkai already and I wasn't invited.

    I've settled in really well, and I enjoy my school and...
  5. Re: Site problems (dead links etc) - report them here

    I will try it tomorrow morning in the office (don't want to risk accidentally logging myself out of the last portal permanently) Thanks so much for the help!

    EDIT: Everything is great now! Thanks...
  6. Re: Site problems (dead links etc) - report them here

    Nah it's not in spam, not anywhere. :-/ It's like ITIL has been completely blocked from the inbox. I used to get emails and message notifications all the time.
  7. Re: Site problems (dead links etc) - report them here

    Thanks for the trouble!

    I still haven't received anything in my inbox though, I wonder what's wrong... :-(
  8. Re: Site problems (dead links etc) - report them here

    It should be. I've received messages in the past.
  9. Re: Site problems (dead links etc) - report them here

    So I forgot my password, and this laptop from home is the only one that has it saved (hanging on by a thread haha). I tried resetting my password via email, but it never sends to my inbox like it did...

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    Haha that was quite a traumatic moment in my life- I was telling it to everyone I met that week lol.

    I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids ;-)

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    Maybe I've more mystery to myself than I thought! Haha. Oh well, I think I got along with everyone I met there, which is more than I can say for other realms of my life. :lol:

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    I'm in the same boat as you, I think. I have a tendency to tell the same stories both online and in person. Wouldn't take much detective work to figure me out, haha.

    Ah, singinglupines, you were at the Nashville Q&A too? We probably met- I was really happy with the group and overall day in general! I'm really looking forward to Pre-Departure Orientation now.

    Re: FBI Background Check delayed?

    Rather than start a new thread I thought I'd post here since it's on the same topic:

    There was a problem with my fingerprints and I was just now informed of this with a letter from the FBI. I sent...
  17. Re: Discrepancy between Self-Assessment Medical Form and CoH

    I am just sick for you over this. I can't believe that doctor! Best of luck to you Rainbow. Don't give up!
  18. Re: Discrepancy between Self-Assessment Medical Form and CoH

    Have you heard from your CO yet? I'd say if you have, that may be a good sign. Like maybe they just want to clear the record rather than eliminate you.

    Oh nice, that's where I got placed and it seems great from what I've studied. Can't wait to get there!
  22. Re: Discrepancy between Self-Assessment Medical Form and CoH

    Oh man, I feel so bad for you and hope this can work out. I think, potentially since they asked from a letter from your GP rather than outright disqualifying you that they are extending some grace to...
