Thread: Estimated time left until we hear about interviews?

  1. #1

    Default Estimated time left until we hear about interviews?

    They told us early Jan so I was hoping sometime around the 10th. What day did they released the list last year?

    In the US, the JET homepage said earliest would be LATE January. Which I take to mean by the 31st, maybe, possibly. Outside chance. Tabun.

    the US PDF went up on the 28th of Jan if I remember correctly.

    In the UK the majority of folks found out from the second week of Jan and onwards.

    Not too sure about other countries though, so your looking at about 3.5 weeks i'd say.

    If the UK interviews start on the 17th, and they say they'll give a maximum of ten days' notice, then UK people should start hearing about interviews by the end of this week, I'd have thought.

    A maximum of 10 days' notice? Not a minimum? When did they say this?

    JET Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme UK

    January and February:
    Interviews are conducted throughout January and February. Interview invitations will be sent by post to candidates’ permanent and temporary addresses. A maximum of 10 days notice will be given for candidates invited to interview.

    Crazy. Not much room for postal service being crap, which is not totally uncommon.

    So for American we are looking at the last week in June to find out about interviews? I was thinking mid January. Also you go to the site to find out about the interview?

    We've been told mid-January is when we're find out if we've been given an interview or not...they're still going through the screening process at the moment...

    I am a little worried but not...... Once your application gets there and is accepted is there any reason one should be worried?

    Apart from the fact the success rate from application to interview to acceptance is pretty low in a lot of countries...

    Enclosing drawings of your favorite anime and scenting the application packet with Drakkar Noir.

    Nah, last week in January, not June. By June, I hope to be getting my visa and documents squared away for the trip. Possibly buying a re-fill for my bottle of Drakkar Noir.

    There will be a .pdf file posted on the JET main website, hopefully by the end of this month. You open it up, and look for your applicant number on the list. If it's there, you got an interview, and just stand by to be contacted by JET with your interview date and time. If your number isn't there, then thanks for applying, but you didn't get an interview this year. (This is kind of similiar to how Japanese entrance exam results are announced.)

    Grrrr. Just as I'm about to start my dissertation...another distraction.
    It definitely won't help that the postal service in the UK is a bit...sporadic in its efficiency.
