Throwback Thursday – The Interac Experience
I’ve never done a ‘Throwback Thursday’ before, so here goes. I’ve put all my experiences with Interac, the company I thought English in Japan for for two years, into this post. I’ve noticed that they continue to get a bit of traffic even a year or more since I posted them, and I thought it would make them into a better resource for anyone thinking of working in Japan and more importantly working for Interac.
You might not have heard of Interac before. I hadn’t before I started looking for work in Japan. They have been around since the 1970s I think though, and today are the second largest employer of ESL teachers in Japan behind the JET Program. There are a number of pluses and minuses. This six part series of articles I wrote examines them through my personal experiences with Interac. Why is it called Interac when that’s not really a word? I have no idea. Unless it was supposed to be ‘Interact’ but the company misspelt its own name!
So, here are the six posts in order. I hope that they help some people to make an informed decision about who to go with in Japan!
Take care – and May the Journey Never End!
