    I just realized that the Canadian application says we won't have answer before May this year! D:

    I wonder if they're splitting up early departure announcements from the regular departure announcements

    Yeah, I read another page later and noticed my mistake, haha. Or, more specifically, the main sheet is really not clear, for some reason:

    November 30, 2015 - Application deadline
    Late January, 2016 - Interview Notifications Sent to Applicants
    Early February, 2016 - JET Interviews
    May 2016 - Final Application Results sent to Applicants
    May – December 2016 - Notifications for upgraded Alternates
    June-July 2016 - Pre-Departure Orientation Events
    July 30, 2016 - Departure to Japan

    Tobio, don't they always split the early from the regular departure announcements?

    Yes, they split the announcements as early departure are called up on an as needed basis, rather than all at once.

    Not good if he's honestly thinking of reapplying.

    Slowly. Applying for government work sucks. I am not looking for interim work. Unemployment makes me want to end my life.

    And Zol, yes, I am kidding about reapplying. However, I would return to Japan if I ever found a grown up job.

    I was not kidding about missing you guys.

    Have you tried applying online?

    Your experience living there is gonna look quite favorably when compared to any other person living outside the country.

    And we missed you too, Sheppard.


    Edit :
    Come on, Sheppard!
    What happened to your 5k post ambition?
    I might catch up if you aren't careful.

    I'll keep trying. I've applied for an entry level position with the foreign affairs department, but they're tough to get.

    Also, I'm getting close to 4K.

    Maybe it's best to use the JET Inbox and see if they received your application.
