    Re: Interac Short Essay Help

    Wow, I haven't been pinged on this forum for a while. My email says someone posted so here I am. They changed their website...sometime last year-ish I think. Been a while. During that time it seems...

    Re: Interac Placements Summer/Fall 2013

    Hmm, I'll dig up someone on the Japan side and see what I get. Or maybe I can snatch someone in the US...or not. It's 6:00 PM where I'm at and I think they close at 5 PM. Hmm, I'll get back to it...

    Re: Interac Placements Summer/Fall 2013

    Haha, the number should be your Passport Number. It's required so they can send off for your CoE. The Japanese government has no need for an SSN. Plane tickets are a little annoying, you should be...

    Re: Interac Demo Lesson Question

    Agreed with above. UK = no audience, USA = Audience. Yes it is an interview and it is also a way to see how well you teach. Having full control over how you teach is an impossibility so, like...

    Except most people think commas are there for a pause effect. Yes, they do have that sort of effect, but most people just create comma splices. Know your comma rules. It helps. For those of you with...

    Re: Anyone else confused yet?

    I say rule of thumb for a reason. When I worked in to the office that's what we observed. Rule of thumb means it's generally true, not it's always true. And when I say strict I mean the dress code...

    True. Sneakers are just cheaper and more comfortable (unless you are in the habit of buying Jordan's new lines). As long as they don't mark is the main (depends on your school flooring). I was in...

    Um, slow down? They said beginning of March right? Then they generally mean the beginning of March. The old schedule was actually nearer the end of March rather than the beginning. I assume you are...

    Well, you've stepped on a sticky bush. Technically speaking you are Interac's employee so whatever they say goes. At the same time there is room for wiggle. Like everyone else has said, it depends on...

    Re: Interac Placements Winter/Spring 2013

    Yeah, sounds about right. People are stupid. I think a lot of people can get through (B.S.) their way through the system just enough to get hired but falter when they realize you can B.S. actually...

    From what I understand, it can in rare cases. They make an estimate based on how many contracts they keep, lose, and obtain for the season and how many teachers are required for each. Generally it's...

    US and Japanese plugs are pretty close so you generally don't need a converter. Just note that for the most part you are limited to non-polarized plugs. Most electronics in the US use 120 volts...
