Thread: Official 2012 Non-JET Applicant List

  1. #1

    Default Official 2012 Non-JET Applicant List

    Hello everyone! Just joined the forum. I've been lurking for a while, and I just got an offer of employment from Interac. I think May 2012 is a little late to be using a 2011 list, so I thought I would make a new one. I've imported the 2012 applicants from the 2011 list (I'm guessing August 2011 posts and after are/were for spring 2012 placements and later).

    Good idea. I didn't even notice the "2011" aspect from the other thread.

    I'm excited to meet some of you, if not all, at orientation. ^_^

    Anyone hear any word on placements yet? I just sent all my documents to Interac. I'm anticipating that I won't know my placement until July...

    I agree, great idea! Akanemukade, I've just submit my online resume... No word on placement yet!

    Oh I just did that online resume too. I thought it was a bit unnecessary, considering the fact that it was like doing the online application all over again. But I suppose that's just a part of the placement process.

    Pretty sure the one person on the list who has a placement was an applicant for a spring departure time. I don't think any fall placements have been released yet. Hope the BOEs and Interac sort that out as quickly as they can! Although a friend of mine who was at the same seminar/interview got deferred to next spring... Hope it doesn't happen to more of us! I think they're still considering applicants for some fall positions. Makes me wonder why they deferred my friend but not me or another friend of ours who applied/interviewed same time.

    Has anyone purchased their departure ticket yet? I emailed Interac and they said that training last year was from August 15th to the 22nd. I am thinking of buying now for price control.

    Interac specifically said not to buy ahead of time. There's always a chance that you may get deferred at the last minute. I guess you could go to Japan ahead of time if you wanted to and just meet up with orientation whenever it starts...

    I WISH I could buy my ticket now. The price is way cheaper now than it will be in July or August

    I think if you bought it now, even if you weren't deferred, you'd want to buy it at least a few days before orientation was last year just in case it's a different date this year. Even then, there's a chance you could have bought a ticket for a day after training will be scheduled to start, which would obviously be very bad, or that it could be two weeks before and the money you'll save by buying a ticket now will be eaten up in rent/food/transportation during that period waiting for orientation to start.

    It sucks, but I guess we just have to wait it out until they give us firm dates.

    Hi guys, so just a quick update. I had my interview with PKC a couple days ago and just found out earlier that I have been accepted. I am still not sure if I am going to accept as I still want to hear from Interac. I have to respond to PKC in a couple of days, though!

    If Interac hadn't worked out for me, I would have applied to PKC next. Good luck and let us know how that goes!

    ^ Yep, same e-mail I got. From what I was told before and after the seminar, worst case scenario would be September or August....Guess it didn't turn out that way.

    Hey Papa Smurf, which seminar did you go to?

    So just debating resigning my current job the end of July, hoping I have an August/September start, as my offer email said Fall 2012 start!

    This could go horribly wrong though
