A Year of Living Positively-Day 335

Thursday was sweet. I did the interview and the second time with the new class.
 
The job interview was strange though positive. I felt a good vibe. It was quite long and in depth, though. I guess it is a head hunter organization at the front lines of hiring and they have their system. There were normal questions. It’s just that they were in depth. The guy asked why I was interested in the job, what I like about teaching English, my academic a career history, why I think I am good at teaching, and so on and so on. I guess they like to verify what’s on the application and check out the candidate’s manner of speaking and personality.
 
I did not get much more information, probably because the agency does not know much more. I suppose they recruit for lots of places in the university system in Japan, and that there might be variation among them. Hm. One piece of information stood out: they are hiring for people to work for three months this coming spring. That is too short. The guy did say that a lot of new employees tend to renew their contracts. I’m wondering why, if they work six months of the year.
 
I probably won’t accept it if they give me an offer, but I’ll keep the opportunity on a back-burner in case I need it. There are, after all, a lot of changes going on. I am curious as to why we have not been invited to declare our interest in renewing our contracts yet, as that procedure usually happens by mid-November and it is already the 21. Something is up. There must be further restructuring and strategizing going on that may effect staffing. Better to have a safety net in place.
