    They could be:
    a 5.3 year JET (came in April, did that + 5 years)
    a private hire after year 5
    a two timer, (3 + 3)
    retarded.

    I'm probably giving too much information, but it basically went like this...

    We had a meeting. All of the departing JETs stood up and they said goodbye, then the recontracting 3rd year, 4th year, 5th year yadayada. Then they said there was special thanks in order for a 6th year and had him stand. I've never even met the guy. A friend and I just exchanged incredulous looks and mouthed "6 years" at each other. It was really weird.

    Eh, I'm not worried. I was pretty vague about my description - I just wanted to demonstrate that this wasn't something that some johnny-b-ALT told me. It was official, and very unusual. They did not say he would still be JET or anything like that so I'm almost positive that he was hired by the BOE.

    On the subject of being a two-timing-bastard ... I didn't know you could be contracted on JET even for two 3 years stints. I thought the five year limit was TOTAL time spent JETing.

    iirc, you can do two, then come back years later and do it again. I don't think you can do three in your first run. We'd have to summon wicket to know.

    I always understood it to mean that you just can't get in a second time if you have already done five years, not that there is an overall limit of five years. I have been told specifically that doing JET for three years the first time does not mean you only get two years the second time.

    If you pecker off before the end of your fifth year, and don't stay in the country, you can reapply for JET and do another 5 year stint. The restrictions on JET are only for application, and do not limit your employment after you've been accepted.

    Basically, with a bit of creativity and luck, some careful planning, and interviewers who are impressed with you, you can get 9.9 years on JET.

    Because some people need a job, and this is a good way to get one. I mean, you need to basically take a year and a bit off after coming home, so really you'd be committing to 11 years for 9.9 years of JET.... or is it 12... I forget if you must wait a full year before reapplying or not.

    Either way. Skill less hack + Easy Japanese Gov Money == GO GO JET PROGRAM YO!

    The key thing that I'd like to reiterate is that it is against the law to have someone on a hakken contract for longer than 5 years. The government of Japan, being the government, usually follows the law. This is the primary reason why it is a 5 year max. If someone is in his/her 6th year, it's probably because they were hired directly as a permanent employee, (this happened to a friend of mine, who lives in a very rural place). It can happen, and it's usually when a BOE decides that it's done with the JET game of having to replace people in perpetuity, and with the understanding that the employee will probably stick around for a very long time.

    Some people don't know their rights, and so variations on this theme can and will happen.

    Regular posters here are sensitive to social issues, and pretty astute people. We all know the complaint over that usage. Coming onto ITIL to try to get a poster to stop anonymously using a word that is correct but antiquated is not a worthwhile pursuit. You'd be better served trying to do this stuff in real life.

    Why would I? It accurately described the group I was referring to:
    characterized by a slowness or limitation in intellectual understanding and awareness, emotional development , academic progress , etc.

    You can't refer to things as slow any more. You have to use the euphemism 'special' or 'different' because people are uncomfortable with acknowledgement of reality.
