    Default Companies other than JET

    I'm just wondering, what other 'teach in Japan programs are there? I know about Nova and some of the other big names, but are there others I just don't know about, and where do they generally place people? Plus, if anyone has any good feedback on either, it'd be appreciated.
    I'll make a list of the ones I know, and update if there are others.

    Nova

    Interac

    I highly recommend going to the Japan forum at Dave's ESL Cafe, and doing a search on these and others. There is a ton of information.

    Unfortunately, in general, they have you by the balls while you are in America(edit:Canada). If you somehow make it to Japan either as a tourist or with another program, you can find good opportunities while you are already here. Especially around the times between semesters of school. There are places that JET doesn't go, like Pre-K or Summer Camp which are ripe for the picking. Or so I have heard...

    I second this. There is a ton of info, often organised in helpful FAQ's. Just don't ask a generic question without poking around a little, or they may not be too helpful...
    Awww... you look like you need a hug! \(^^)/

    I'm feeling crabby, so:
    1 There are so many threads on this - please do a search.
    2 For the last time, JET is NOT a bloody company. People have missed out on getting into JET because they've referred to it as a company in their interviews ("If I am accepted by your company" etc.)
    Rant over. And, on a more serious note, genuine good wishes on your job hunt. Just don't jump at the first chance and do your research.

    I don't know what the NET program is like, but Kurashiki is nice.
