    No, the Japanese guy said in English "May I ask you a few questions in Japanese?" and I said "Sure" and then he asked me really easy stuff like "do you like Japanese food" or "have you been to Japan before?" maybe 2 or 3 questions. I think they want to make sure you aren't lying about your ability, but he seemed impressed with my answers.

    I think they make you read in the CIR interview though.

    I have heard that most all of the Japanese language questions for ALT's are all very, very simple.

    I wasn't asked anything in Japanese.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    I heard it depends on the consulate. Similar to the sample lesson plan question.

Then also, my suit is black, would a blue undershirt, or a white undershirt look better? I'm not keen on color management in wardrobe haha.
    I think the overall impression of the suit is more important than the color of your buttons. Do the buttons look cheap/make the suit look cheap? Then don't wear it. If they look nice, wear it. Personally, I'd go with a blue shirt... because I like blue .

    I'm going with a skirt suit because it looks better on me than a pants suit. I have no experience with tights though (aside from the red and green ones worn on Christmas holiday during childhood......). Are black tights with a black suit ok? My mom said no, but I don't know how dated her tastes are. I'm concerned about matching flesh tone tights because my skin is brown. I don't want to look like I'm wearing brown tights with a black suit. Ick.
    I have seen the life on this planet, Scully, and that is exactly why I am looking elsewhere.

    How about sheer black or charcoal pantyhose? Their color won't clash with your suit (ex. wearing two different shades of solid black) and you won't have to worry about matching it to your skin tone. I've tested it out and that's what I'm doing this time around. Last year I interviewed in "mocha" colored hose that were about ten shades lighter that my own skin, it was mortifying. Please learn from my mistakes.

    I agree with Beth, don't wear black opaque tights with a black skirt it will look too much. I wore some really nice sheer black tights and they went with the suit really well.

    Rather than fish through 41 pages of posts, I'll just ask:

    As a girl, will I lose points in my interview for showing up to my interview wearing a suit with pants instead of a skirt-suit? Or should I just wear a blouse with nice pants instead?

    I only have one pants-suit and it isn't very pretty and doesn't fit perfectly, but I have no time to get anything else before the interview...

    Edit: this is for the CIR interview, by the way. I hear that CIRs have to wear suits to work all the time and that ladies are expected to wear skirt suits at work.

    Girl-suits with trousers are perfectly normal and fine these days, don't see how jet would frown on them. Maybe Japan is weird and different? If so though you're expected to be western at the interview and treat it as a western interview, not a Japanese one.
    I only have the one suit too- not even actually, had to buy a new shirt and borrow a tie and the shoes.

    Pant-suits are fine for girls, especially if you're a bigger girl. I would recommend the suit, rather than just a blouse; you'll look more professional.

    You sure you don't have time to get something else, or have the suit tailored? This is definitely a time when you need to be lookin' like a million bucks.

    Will bring the suit then. I can't remember where I heard someone say that female CIRs never wear pants, though, but I guess I'll worry about that AFTER (if) I get the job offer.

    I wish. I'll be going to this interview immediately after coming off a plane from another interview, so no time. My interview is in 2 days; scary.

    That is a really unfortunate situation. I understand if the situation is simply unavoidable, but to others who might be reading this post: I highly recommend that you arrive in your interview city the night before and stay in a decent hotel room.

    I studied in Japan for a semester last year, and several of the female student teachers wore pant suits. I honestly doubt it'd be a problem in a Jet interview.
