I had an interview for another job in Japan yesterday. It was an all day thing, including presenting a lesson we’d planned, so basically all weekend was caught up with planning for the interview then being at the interview. Afterwards, they were calling people between 4-6 pm for a second interview. I didn’t get called 😦
I’ve been thinking I could do further study that would help me get a job teaching English in Japan but I don’t know that I’m that interested — which makes me question my whole reason for doing this.
I want to live in Japan and I want to learn Japanese. One option is go for a while and study Japanese.
The salary for teaching English isn’t so great anyway. If I stay in Australia for longer I can save money (I can save more than the monthly teaching salary every month anyway).
Another idea I’ve been toying with is a long holiday in Japan, followed by a trip on the Trans-Siberian railway across Russia then some time in Europe ending up staying with friends in London. It’s totally do-able.
Sometimes it’s good to realise that life is always full of options.
