    Default Interac Spring 2015 Candidates

    Hey guys.

    Thought I'd go ahead and start off a new thread for all Interac spring 2015 candidates.

    I interviewed beginning of early October in L.A. and just received my offer of employment!
    The waiting game is going to be bad until placement comes. But nonetheless, I'm excited.

    Who else is going to be going to Japan come Spring time?

    Some times you fly out here without knowing your placement at all. I didn't know mine.

    What kind of fly by night operation doesn't tell its employees where they'll be working ahead of time?

    This one.

    I had an idea where I would be at, and it turned out to be true. But there were a ton of people at training that didn't know until the last day of training.

    Do they fly you with a bag over your head and noise-canceling headphones, just in case?

    I'd pay extra for a perk like that in a flight so long.

    If they could supply a anti-sickness pill too that would be fantastic.

    Ha! I've never been travel-sick, for which I count myself amongst the very lucky.

    Botch? Fantastic band, sad they broke up.

    By the way, are there actually any other Interac candidates?

    Decided not to wait until the fall 2015 intake and I'm applying now for spring. I'm hoping there are some spots left and that I can snag one.

    Sorry that I cut my last answer short, I had class.

    I would take every oppertunity possiable to visit this part of the world, you may never be closer. Your family can wait. Plus you should/may already know all the chrstmas events and things from back home, why not experience them in a new way and in a different place. Your family should understand, even more so if you are only planning on being out here for a year. Thats not a long time to be away in the scheme of things. I'm not married, but I have been with my OH for 6 years now but neither of us are planning on going back for the holidays. It's going to be nice to experience christmas together for once without all the stupid crap that families tend to pull. (Which is even more if you are married as you have to decide which family to visit and you can be sure that the other side will not be as understanding as they let on).

    I do stalk the JET threads mainly beacuse they are more active, and at the end of the day we are all doing the same job and experiencing the same weird sh*t.

    @Jigget. How many would you say make it on here then? How many thousands apply just from the states and we have an active membership of about 60 at best. Would it be more like 0.1%?

    Pretty sure there's always an open spot in Interac.

    Whether that's a good thing, is up to you.

    Trying to finish up the app and realized that they're requesting a cover letter instead of the short essay mentioned in years past. For those of you that got accepted, any suggestions on structure? Did everyone pretty much write why Japan and Interac portions? My current cover letter is pretty much focused on my teaching experience.
