Overseas Applicantions Winding Down
We are still accepting applications from all applicants, however we are currently winding down our overseas recruiting process as we shift our focus to in-country interviews from December 1st onwards. Interviews for a few final overseas applicants will continue for the next few weeks as we clear out our log of current applications, but we won’t be able to accept many more new overseas applications at this time.
Any applicants from overseas should also be aware that if we haven’t already started your interview process or gotten you approved yet, it may not be possible to get you through the whole process and have you in Japan and ready to start the new school year on time from April 1st. We will restart our next overseas recruiting process once again in mid to late April for mid-term and September openings.
Also, due to a backlog of previously approved applicants we still have in our system from last year, it should be noted that this may line up to be a highly competitive year for new recruits. We fully expect to have a full slate of new contracts to fill and our normal number of current ALTs who will be moving on, but it will still take all of December and into January to determine our exact hiring numbers for April 2022.
Please note that due to the current conditions caused by the coronavirus, we will be forgoing our normal face-to-face interviews and instead temporarily resort to a web-only system using Google Meet for all applicants, both in country and overseas, until further notice.
Overseas, hopefully we will be able to resume face-to-face interviews sometime in the near future. Typically, we interview in most of the following locations - in New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, Charlotte, Tampa, Austin, Denver, Los Angeles, and Seattle in the US; in London, England; and in Brisbane and Melbourne, Australia.
