So here's the skinny:
I was recently contracted to work a year for Interac. I leave in March for the harrowing adventure before me and I have a slew of questions for those who actually know something from personal experience of Interac and the schools and areas they usually utilize.
At this stage, I'm still a little in the dark. Interac will send me an email in October that has most of the vital information like where in Japan I'll be, the age group I'll be working with, etc. Until then, I want to know more about what it's like to work as an employee of this company. I believe in being armed to the teeth before diving into such a huge project. Is there any advice anyone can give me about packing? living alone? shopping? meeting other ALTs? how others will regard me as a mere possessor of a BA in English?
Thanks in advance! <3
