Update: ALT Job Training is Canceled

Scratch that. I just got a phone call this evening telling me that my training will be postponed for the next thirteen days. Given the current circumstances, I completely understand. So I guess it means I go from training on the 29th, 30th, and 31st, to live teaching on April 1st. Talk about a quick turn around. I know it’s something that’s out of my control, and out of Interac’s control, as well. The only thing I can do is roll with it.

I’m gonna try to take this time to regroup and get my mind right. It’s just been a whirlwind of events, and I feel a bit more skittish than usual. I haven’t been exercising or eating right lately (the eating part is due in part to the earthquake, but that’s no excuse), so I’m going to bust out the old futon I don’t use, stretch, bust out some pushups and situps, cook up some healthy food (while I still have electricity), do some much needed blog updates, and some much needed studying. It’s going to be like a Rocky Training Montage only there’s some heavier reading involved, and no punches to the face, oh and no Rocky, and no Apollo Creed, and no…ah, you get the point, lol.

  • Yeah…I think most of the teacher’s jumped ship after the quake. I wonder how eikaiwa are holding up. I heard a few schools were hiring (prob b/c teacher ran away, bk home)……. so that’s why they are having a hard time planning the training! No one left to train?! But I really hand it to you for sticking in there – you deserve a really good employer. I hope they treat you as well as you have already treated them by staying in Japan.

    ALT positions will likely be secure. But I am curious to find out how Eikaiwa is doing after the quake. Yikes……

  • Hello,

    Sorry to bother you, but I would like to know if you have any programs similar with this free job training program in Japan, because I will travel in your country next year, and I would be interested in joining such a program while I’m there (to kill my free time).
