So, since I got my job I've been curious what kinds of things others around here do. I have a vague idea for a few of you, but even if we hear your job description, that doesn't really mean we know what you actually do.

And if you don't have a job yet, share with us your aspirations so we can tell you all about how they'll never happen.

Personally, my technical title is "Help Desk Level One", and I work at a small computer repair store (that no longer accepts computers in for repair, lol).

What this actually means though, is I answer 1-2 phone calls a day and either fix people's computer's remotely (we have software installed on all the ones we support that allow us to take control from our work), or have them brought in if they is likely a hardware problem.

Can't say anything bad about the job tbh. I'm technically hourly, but during my last paycheck I missed about 5 hours of work and wasn't docked any pay. I have lunch and breaks and can basically just leave when I want if I need to do an errand. I'm given work to do and then trusted I can do it without supervision (my third day there I was completely alone in the store). My co-workers are all nice people, and think I'm basically a god at what I do compared to the people before me.

With all that said, I was unemployed for about a year before getting this job, so it's a really nice change of pace to not only enjoy my time there, but be able to support myself and not feel useless. I'm now thoroughly convinced that getting a job is mostly luck after going through the application process enough times.

Anyway, what kind of work do you guys do? Feel like ranting or gloating about your job?

Community Conversation / Help with an Essay - JET Programme
« on: November 17, 2014, 02:44:43 pm »
Hey guys. So I'm going to be trying to participate in the JET Programme - Japanese Exchange and Teaching Programme - a program where you go to Japan for 1-5 years and teaching English to Japanese students. In order to do this we need to write something called a statement of purpose, which basically just says why we want to do this and how we're really awesome. It's supposed to be about two pages (double spaced) long, and these are the instructions:

Quote from: Instructions
All Candidates (ALT/CIR): Describe why you are interested in going to Japan and participating in the JET Programme. What do you hope will happen as a result of your participation in the JET Programme? Please address your ability to adapt to life in Japan and what would make you an overall strong JET Programme participant.

Assistant Language Teacher (ALT): Why are you interested in becoming an ALT? What skills and qualities do you have that would help you in this role? Briefly explain any relevant experiences you have had.

Anyway, I was hoping you guys could help me by looking it over. I just need to make sure I've used proper English (going to be an English teacher an all), and that I sound as awesome as I need to be in order to get in (and that I covered the points they mentioned). Some additional things I want to know is: do you think I said "JET Programme" too much, and should I be capitalizing senate and university?

If anyone could help review it, it'd be much appreciated. I'm going to be sending it out in the next few days.


Quote from: Essay
Growing up I never had the chance to experience other cultures first hand, and I believe I missed out on a lot because of that. The JET Programme gives Japanese students a chance to interact with others from around the globe, with the goal of cultural exchange and internationalism. Both of these are movements that I think play a vital role in the future of Japan and the world as a whole. I know I have a lot to offer and I want to help the JET Programme achieve its goals. I also hope to achieve some personal goals during the JET Programme. It is for these reason that I believe I am an ideal candidate for the program, and a great fit as an ALT.

I've been interested in Japan ever since I was a child. To me, it's always been a unique place, one that paralleled Canada with their technology and progress, yet had customs and a history so different from our own that it intrigued me. I think that the JET Programme is a fantastic opportunity to become immersed in the Japanese culture, which I can later take back home with me and share with others I know.

While participating in the JET Programme, one of my goals is to share some of Canada's culture with the students of Japan. I think that Canada is a great country and that the students, and Japan in general, will benefit by learning about our culture. I have been to all the way to the east and west coasts of Canada, which has resulted in me becoming quite knowledgeable of my country. These personal experiences have given me a deep insight into Canada, which I plan to share with others while in Japan.

Naturally, another one of my goals is to teach the students English. My experience as a Lab Assistant while in university is what sparked my interest in teaching, and a goal of mine while on the JET Programme is to solidify that this interest could become a future profession for me. Along with that, a hobby of mine is writing, and the nature of that writing is branching stories where the reader chooses how they want the story to play out. Not only has this hobby refined my English abilities, but it has also resulted in me becoming more creative, which I believe is a crucial skill when it comes to teaching children. Additionally, I think I could use my writing hobby to make learning English more engaging.

I think that as an ALT, getting involved in the community and being a leader are important to succeeding in program. Not only do I intend to do these while in Japan, but I have a proven history of doing so. I have participated in Walmart's Walk for Miracles for the past five years now, and while in college I was a soccer coach for kids ages 6-7 over two summers. When I moved out to British Columbia for university I continued this trend; I founded and was the president of the chess club at the university, and I served on the university's senate and a sub-committee for a one year term. Because of my service on the senate I was also invited to join the Joint Chancellor Selection Committee, which was tasked with selecting the next chancellor of the University of Waffles.

If selected to join the JET Programme and become an ALT, I have no doubt that I would excel at the role. I'm positive that I have the qualities and motivation needed to succeed in the program, and I believe that my participation can only benefit the JET Programme and its goal of cultural exchange and internationalism. As for my own goals, becoming an ALT would be the perfect opportunity for me to explore being a teacher, share Canadian culture with others, and become immersed in the Japanese way of life.
