  3. Re: Seeking feedback on personal statement draft

    Ahhh the good ole check my statement threads...
    Not sure how I feel about them. Why don't you just ask an intelligent friend/ coworker to have a look over it (might be an idea to give them an...

    You won't wear shorts at work so your tatt(s) will be fine.

  6. Re: Inneed advice regarding disabilities and medical history

    Militant vegans are like 1% max and most of them realize their downfall after arriving, I wouldn't worry too much about them :p
  7. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Yes ... but, and this is a big but(t), we are talking about the Japanese public sector here; an entity that has no qualms whatsoever about outsourcing translations to a local "agencies" who simply...
  8. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Pretty sure no one actually cares what level you are after you've arrived and settled in; you get given a job, you do it! Some of them are within your capacity and some aren't.

    Re: Post the Japanese you learned today

    seems legit
  10. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    I don't usually agree with mrcharisma but he's on point with this one. I interview ex-JETs all the time and the specific personality traits that most Japanese companies admire in them (especially in...
  11. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Yeah for some prefectures it's a given but probably not worth the overall risk. But yeah, what are you gunna do OP if you get given Kochi (notorious for hiring CIRs to be ALTs) for example?
    Think...
  12. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    N2 is fine! As for the numbers from each consulate, it's a bit of a gamble but somewhere around 10% or less of how many ALTs they send is a fairly good ballpark estimate I think (i.e. if they send 20...
  13. Re: Why were you accepted by the JET Programme for a second time?

    dat SEA lyfe
  14. Re: Why were you accepted by the JET Programme for a second time?

    Well so can most CIRs but that doesn't mean it's not a good stepping stone to get you back in country
  15. Re: Why were you accepted by the JET Programme for a second time?

    Post-JET options tho!
    Either way though the SEA position is where it's at!
  16. Re: Why were you accepted by the JET Programme for a second time?

    If you're not applying as a used-to-be-an-ALT-now-want-to-be-a-CIR then please, for the sake of humanity, don't reapply :(

    Re: I need out of here.

    But it still ends up being cheaper because you don't have to pay all those niggly things like Tokyo orientation, flights (international + domestic) etc. etc.

  20. Re: Setting up a new apartment in Nagahama

    Great I'm stoked for you. As for the bedding etc. are they not providing it for you? I thought COs had to provide you with at least the bare minimum (fridge, bed, washing machine etc.) when you...
  21. Re: Setting up a new apartment in Nagahama

    Yeah, but this is Japan we're talking about here.
    Either way I'm crossing my fingers for you cuz mine was 2 months bond + 1 month "present" to the landlord
  22. Re: Setting up a new apartment in Nagahama

    Moved into a new apartment whilst on JET, had to pay both the bond and key money. You might want to triple check that one.

    Re: Excellent job vs Japan

    Grass is greener and all that jazz
    Find a non-English teaching job that will send you to Japan for work; best of both worlds really.
    Teaching English is NOT a career unless you get a masters in it...
