Are there English teaching jobs in Japan other than with JET?
Unless you have extensive EFL (English as a Foreign Language) experience, this isn’t the time for you to be looking into other English teaching jobs in Japan. The once sweeter-than-sweet honey pot of English teaching in Japan has lost much of its glow, and there is some intense speculation that NOVA, one of the largest private English schools in Japan, may be forced to shut down before the end of the year. This means that all of their teachers are flooding the market searching for other jobs. This has always been a hit or miss industry… and appears to be getting even shakier.
