Thread: Application Process Order

  1. #1

    Default Application Process Order

    When you apply, all of the documents-- statement of purpose, letters of reference, transcripts, yadda-- only go into making you have an interview or not, right? So, if you get an interview, the only thing that matters from that point on, the only thing that puts you in the shortlist, alternate, or reject pile, is how your interview goes. Right?

    Pretty sure it's a combined score situation.

    So having a certain score with the paper application gets you the interview, and that score decides what score you need on the interview to get shortlisted or waitlisted? All right.

    They may weight things a certain way, but I've known too many people who had a bad interview who still got in too think it's all about the interview.

    Were any of them CIRs?

    I know the ALT interview is mainly answering a bunch of trick questions, so blowing that def doesn't mean that you can't do the job. CIRs have to prove their lang skills in the interview though.

    The CIR interview is much harder as the CIRs are the pinnacle of the programme. The interview process is tough enough only to ensure the very best get through, after which they'll spend a year sitting at their desk whilst being ignored by colleagues.

    Wow, I always thought ALTs were the main focus of the program, and SEAs and CIRs were less needed, in that order.

    I have read so many stories about JETs being treated like outsiders by their own co-workers.

    CIRs are inherently superior because of their extensive skills in international relations and high Japanese ability.
