You got a chance to see what some of the kids were like and some of the scenarios could look like. I think that it was great to have in the interview pre-room as it gave people something to take their mind of the impending interview. Also, I think it is easy to criticize something, but if you're selected as a JET and you were to watch the entire DVD I am willing to bet that you would be thanking them multiple times for putting it together. I am positive that any JET watching it would likely take a lot a way from it, have a few questions answered or just feel more prepared having seen it.
no such luck for me!!!!! like i sad, the set up of our interviews was different, so no reception room, other jets to talk to, or anything like that
Yeah, in Vancouver they just had a reception area where you'd sign in, from there they sent you to the location of your interview room and you'd sit on a chair beside the door waiting for them to call you in. No one to really talk to during the waiting time LOL.
But for the video, I'm guessing it's the same one that was shown to us during an information session we had on campus once? Perhaps it's different?
I interviewed in Vancouver as well! Weird set-up, but the reception staff were nice.
I didn't go to an on-campus session, because I graduated last April, and didn't know about JET till October. So no video for me, but I am sure I didn't miss much
