Thread: 2009 Placement Discussion

  1. #1

    Default 2009 Placement Discussion

    Please put your placement in this format:
    username / main island / prefecture / city, town, or village name /// [WHAT PLACEMENT YOU REQUESTED] /// <CONSULATE>

    For example: Sugar SMAP Peas / Honshuu / Akita-ken / Akita-shi /// [Shizuoka] /// <Nashville>
    (Not factual, of course)

    (Suggestion to add a "placement requested" section by Fidelity ^_^)
    (and please feel free to send me a MESSAGE if I've screwed up royally in the breakdown of Japan into prefectures, etc.)

    *EDIT (5/5/2009)*
    Thank you all for the suggestions on what to add to the board. I've added the 'consulate' at the end of the format. And that will be it guys. Otherwise the format gets too long and messy and I think we have all the basics up there.

    *EDIT (5/17/2009)*
    This thread will become the Unofficial Placement Thread --- Discussion thread of sorts. A copy will be made to be "stickied" later ... I believe ^_^

    Comic Sans?

    It might be interesting if people listed their requested placement along with their actual placement.

    What about listing the consulate you're from? (if you want)

    Good idea for what consulate you're from.

    Yeah, and Comic sans.. wasn't that just dubbed the most hated font in the world? :P

    I try to put all my flyers at work in comic sans because its such a dumb font. Plus coworkers always ask, "Why the hell did you use comic sans?"
    Like I told my last wife, I said, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see, and besides... it's all in the reflexes."

    I think mine had contacted me on facebook too! That is, it's someone who I don't know who has photos of japan and has posted loads of japan-related news articles on their wall. But I can't work out where they live! ARGH!

    I'm betting on it taking awhile. There were so many applicants this year that everything has been pushed back a bit. However, I'm hoping for it to come as early as possible.

    I think I may be the only one, but I'm wanting Yamaguchi (for obvious personal reasons ), and Fukuoka for a close second...

    Yamagata sounds nice. A friend of mine lived there. As long as I'm not super isolated (meaning takes me 2+ hours and/or lots of money to get to a city), I'll be happy.

    I can't see myself being patient for much longer - would love anywhere in Honshu really. As long as I'm in Japan I'll be happy.

    Hey, today is my first day back to work since golden week, and on my desk.....a big stack of applications, we still need to decide schools and are waiting for reply forms, but we have a good idea who is coming. so at least some of you should start hearing about placements soon.

    Quite exciting there mark. Should be interesting to see who goes where. I believe that your placement will can dictate the way your experience in JET will pan out, so it really is a big deal.

    When the Chicago rep. was asked, we were told late May/early June so I'm counting on then.

    Yeah definitely. I've known people to have an amazing time or terrible one based on their placement.

    I couldn't disagree more. There will be pros and cons to every placement, but you're the one who decides how you deal with them. I think your experience will be what you make of it.
