Thread: Dear: you poor cunts

  1. #1

    Default Dear: you poor cunts

    Enjoy checking the mail box every two minutes.

    To those of you that get accepted, nice one. You've got yourself in for a minimum of one year on the gravy train. Good times. Enjoy sitting around at school surfing this site with your hand on it, in the knowledge that you're getting paid to do essentially nothing.

    To those of you that get rejected, don't go harping on about JET selection being a crap shoot. It's not, you were just not good enough to get in.

    To those of you that get alternated, you've got months of sitting around on this site looking like a tool still to come. Your life hangs in the balance and we'll be there every step of the way to remind you of that fact.


    Oh, and rejects, never fear. There are plenty of inferior jobs going in Japan with Interac and the likes. You'll be paid less and the JETs will likely have a field day at your incredible ineptitude, but what do you care? You're in it for the green tea, onsens and a smorgasbord of easy Japanese bitches anyway, right?

    Is the harping usually worse after interview notifications or after shortlist notifications? There should be fewer polls this time at least.

    The shortlist notifications will see a lot of people disappearing in embarrassment after they get cut. Some of them prefer to come here to bitch about how fucked the JET system is. Still more of them just come here to cry.

    It's actually quite entertaining.

    Well, if I get rejected I'll definitely let the board know (and it would be nice if everyone else did too)...but I don't think I'll stick around too long after that. If Japanistan still had the arcade I'd be over there regardless, I was addicted.

    if i get shortlisted, i still have the decision of whether or not to say yes, so maybe ill stick around

    if i get alternate'd, ill be declining and probably sashaying on outta here back to my old job. if i get rejected, obviously ill be doing the same (after saying so, for statistical purposes). so in those cases, at least i wont be one of the bitter, excuse-laden masses!

    Your the man FK

    I FUCKING hate it when people bitch when they don't cut the mustard for JET; you should realize that you were a terrible candidate.

    I don't think this is necessarily true. In any field, good candidates can easily go slipping through the cracks.

    Sports drafts are a good example. Don't get me wrong, a much higher percentage of 1 round NFL draft picks are good compared to 7th rounders, but you still get some duds in the first round and some Hall of Fame late rounders.

    Yay for sports metaphors.

    Haha, no shit. AND, judging from the cretins that make up a significant number of JET participants, there's no doubt that the standards for acceptance are low enough.

    We can only hope I'll lower the bar even further this year.

    But with JET it seems the crap of the crop REALLY outweighs the cream of the crop; look at all the people who freak out in applying (Jeshipyo, crackaline to name a few). In my opinion they sure as hell aren't cut out to be on JET.

    Dawg is a cool dude, I'd rather see more people like him on JET than others.

    Including myself, I personally know at least 6 people who applied for the ALT position. I'm going to be interested to see who gets shortlisted/alternated/rejected. Then I'll be able to judge for myself just how good JET is at judging candidates.

    Although to be fair, it's likely they're a better judge than I am.

    Yeah, I think for the most part people have to give the embassies and consulates a lot of credit, they've been doing this for something like 20 years so I think they have a good eye to decide who gets to go, and who doesn't.
