    Default JET Program Application Process: How Does JET Select Candidates?

    Found this interesting article earlier today, has some dated material, but its a fairly well done article. Good read to kill some time.

    Check it out:

    woa, so many words, can't comprehend...

    i think the article said your acceptance hinges on your interview? i think that might be a bit bogus, because i'm pretty sure i shat myself at my interview. i'm sure they have updated their selection processs to something more modern... like picking names out of a hat.

    either way, i'm not complaining lol

    It's clearly completely random or discriminatory in some manner because I didn't get in! Grr! Rawr! Anger and stereotyping of all Japanese people based on one experience.

    Now that's out the way maybe the discussion can be more mature.

    It's a strange article because she seems to repeat a lot of Importing Diversity's commentary without critiquing it terrible much. She then concludes that the JET programme isn't for everyone - which isn't what the article is about! A relevant conclusion would be "JET prefers personality to substance" or "JET hires fairly" not "don't apply if you aren't up for it."
    It seems confused between an article on how it works/playing the system and how to prepare in a personal sense.

    lol, reverse psychology? Don't worry "we make every effort to accommodate your preferences, but under certain circumstances this is just not possible. We thank you for your patience."

    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    Thanks! I'm glad to hear they were helpful in some way...even if only to provide a distraction from the painful application process. =P

    By the way, your post on The Pacific was really informative for a someone like me who knows next to nothing about the history. Are you going to do a compendium/review for each episode?

    I'm just happy you're making the most and best of it. You won't believe how many people are given an opportunity like yours and take it for granted.
