    Wow, bro must have been doing something wrong.... 6 times? Well, I guess you can commend him on his tenacity.

    No, he was special. Don't look at his case and think it applies to you.

    Well, then. I think I'd only try twice or thrice.

    Use of the term 'thrice' leads to automatic rejection.

    I think BigRedGoofball is a perfect example of standing still and expecting the world to change around you. He applied for JET, did nothing for a year, then was rejected again. Lather, rinse, repeat. He never made modifications to his qualifications, and in the 8 years he's been applying he never made it to Japan with a private company, citing the fact that he did not have the money. (In 8 YEARS.) That reeks of someone too lazy to make substantial changes in their own life. JET loves people who reapply, but if you don't show initiative and are still working in the same retail job you were in 8 years ago there is something wrong.

    That said, JET also allows some real mouthbreathers in.

    That would do it.

    Really, if you application reeks of desperation... they can smell that a mile away.

    Why would you expect to get in a second time if you haven't gained anything?

    Because those type of people believe the selection process is completely random.

    I like when he says "I do admit that I wasted my time applying since I did not get an interview with JET, but I've focused on positive that I've since received much better interviews ever since. It seems that most of the posters here are the bitter ones."

    I've worked in the same restaurant for 5 years to pay my way through school... I thought it showed loyalty. Didn't realize it could also be interpreted as lack of ambition. Though I suppose my case is different because I'm in a Masters program now.

    I think that is fine. I mean as long as you're are progressing with school or in other areas. Plus plenty of people do that- work little jobs to pay through college. I think working some place for five years looks better than working 4 different jobs in two years.


    And LAWL at that thread link.

    working while in school is one thing...

    If you have a BA and aren't pushing yourself outside your comfort zone... that's different.

    I'm gonna be honest and say that I was too nervous to really apply to jet because I was too lazy (to apply)/had a 6 month unemployment gap after graduation due to depression and I really wasn't comfortable explaining this. I had a tough enough job getting employment over here with having a career break! I knew I wouldn't get through.
