    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Seiha English Academy.

    Interview

    I got connected with this job opportunity through Oxford Seminars. First I was emailed with some more details of the job by a recruiter. Then we had a short 30 minute interview/information session via Skype. The recruiter was on-time, even being online earlier than the interview time. So be online and ready. The recruiter asks a few quick questions and gives lots of information about Seiha and the position. Have a paper and pen ready to take lots of notes. He then asks if you want to go forward.

    Next interview was a one hour Skype call with a person from Seiha. The interview was fairly easy and was in a conversational style. It alternated between answering questions and getting information from the interviewer. The interviewer gave more information about the initial stages of the job (getting set up in Japan, training process) etc. Again, be ready to jot down notes because you'll get a lot more information. I did not have to do a mock lesson or sing any songs.

    Some things the interviewer emphasized included long commute times, long work days (because of commute time), and culture shock. However, no questions were asked about how I'd deal with these issues of adjusting to living in Japan.

    At the end of the interview, the interviewer asked if I still wanted to go through with my application. I said yes. It took about a week and a half to get a response.
