    Default Raising Initial Start Up Funds

    Hey everyone,

    I applied with Interac and I am starting to raise my start up funds.

    Any interesting ways that you guys got the 500000 yen to start?

    That is what they suggest. That does not cover airfair of course.

    Its steep. ($5000 in USD) Still I would rather have too much at the on set than not enough.

    I'm not familiar with how much Interac do to help you find housing, but if they do (including paying the key money/deposit, etc) as in, you literally just move into an apartment/house that's ready for you, you will NOT need 5000 USD, wth? Have they justified why you might be spending 500,000 yen in one month?

    They only help you find the apartment and be a guarantor. The rest (first two months rent, key money, deposit, etc...)is all on you up front. On top of that, you are not paid until the end of your second month. That was their justification.

    Hmmm... Then I guess you will need to take more than normal. How much do you have saved? Are you currently working?

    I am a Substitute Teacher making less than half what I will be making in Japan. I only interviewed this last weekend but have several people already pledging to donate some cash for my start up.
    I am selling t-shirts with some cool japanese designs on them to fund raise.

    Even in JET y'all had to raise funds right?

    If all else fails, do you have a credit card? Put a lot on your card now, pay it back once on that lucrative Interac payroll.

    just ask mater and pater for a few shillings.
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    I know how much Interac drones make. I chose my words intentionally.

    Fixing it would have involved the term "slave wages".

    By the time you save 5000, you could just come here on a 1 month vacation (assuming you do the typical ALT hostel stays) and not worry about the work thing.
