POSITIONS WITHIN KANTO REGION FOR 2015-2016 :
We are now seeking new candidates to begin ALT work in public elementary, junior high, and high school positions. The school year starts in the beginning of April and candidates should be ready to arrive in March for orientation. The process is possible for those outside Japan as well as those inside Japan.
While we are focused in the Kanto region, we are expanding and currently have clients and teachers in the following areas--Tokyo, Ibaraki, Chiba, Saitama, Kanagawa, Shizuoka, Tochigi, Gunma, Yamanashi, Iwate, Hokkaido, and Fukushima.
Our Tokyo positions are mostly part-time, and so it may be difficult to sponsor teachers desiring a Tokyo position who are abroad. Therefore, it is possible for teachers to work their first year in a location outside of Tokyo, and then move to Tokyo for their second year. It is also important to note that because rents are high in the Tokyo area no housing assistance is provided in the Tokyo area. However, for positions outside of Tokyo we can arrange housing and a rental car in most cases if needed.

BEFORE COMING TO JAPAN...
1) Please make sure you truly wish to be employed in Japan.
A) Review the FAQ on our website and the complaint boards on such teacher’s forums as http://www.daveseslcafe.com . Japan, international travel, and adventure can be an attractive force, but be prepared for the worst case before you commit a year of your life (and potentially some savings) to something. The complaint boards are just for that. People who write on them are those wanting to vent frustration. Some of them are truly justified, some of them are whiners who blame everyone else for life’s problems, but many of them are from good people who just did not understand the nature of what they were committing to.
B) Buy and read a book on Japanese culture, history, current business environment, and current international relations and interactions. If you do decide to seek employment in Japan, the information in it will be very useful.
C) Keep in mind that Japan is expensive. Very expensive. Also Japanese companies only pay once-a-month, so you will need enough savings to stretch to that first paycheck; approximately 6 weeks after you start working for a 1st of the month start date. See the FAQ for more on the expenses.
2) Visit one of our employment sources (above) and see if we are currently seeking employees. We have different positions to fill from time to time within our company, so it’s good to know what is available. Our most common position is a Semi-Full Time ALT position. These (ALT) positions start on the 1st of April or 1st of September. It is good to apply 3-4 months before the start date. Our other employment needs occur at different times throughout the year, so checking the employment websites often is good.
