    What time, Kaizan? I don't think I heard about anyone having an interview any earlier than twelve, I wonder when the earliest interview was.

    Around 10ish. There were people before me so I'm guessing interviews can go early as 9 am. But I'm not entirely sure

    Cool! Maybe I ran into you, Kaizen. Mine was at 9:45am, but the person ahead of me didn't show up so I went in early.

    Hi everyone,

    I had my interview in Vancouver two weeks ago. I believe it went okay....*cross fingers*

    The interviewer said I will hear back in mid-April. Does anyone know when in mid-April?

    My advice, try and get as far away from anything JET releated for the entire month of March. I heard back on the 9th of April and that was really early. Some don't hear back until the end of April.
    You won't hear anything in March and nothing is going to change in March. Don't torture yourself forget about JET, focus on your back up plans, or your current life.

    From what I've seen on blogs and such, its usually between the first and third weeks. I'd guess probably the week of the 13th.

    It's entirely dependent on the year, and they aren't on a particularly rushed schedule.

    Like AVN said, relax, work on plan B, C, D, and avoid JET entirely.

    Congratulations!

    BTW, I just thought I'd let you guys know I found my old notification and the Vancouver consulate let me know on April 13th about my interview results.

    If anyone else job hunting while waiting for JET? I am about to graduate from university, so I have a few back-up plans in case JET doesn't work out. However, I am feeling a bit conflicted because what if I land a job before I hear from JET? Should I accept it.......or should I bank on JET and make plans after the results are out?

    Personally, I would apply to places now. If you find out that you've been shortlisted, great, go with JET. If you get placed as an Alternate, go forth with the other plans.

    Well you still have anywhere from 2 weeks to a month before you find out.
    If Japan is where you want to go, then start practicing Japanese at the very least. I'd recommend finding at least 1 or two alternative options given that you don't make it/are placed as an alternate.

    AND don't ever become one of those people that ride on to their Alternate status until December, only to find out that they never made it. Such a waste of time.
