Basically here to ask where are these japanese schools i've heard about. I recently completed my tefl weekend course and was told theres lots of schools hiring in Japan. However on applying I haven't heard back or been told that there not hiring for Japan, some wanted specefic degrees and others more qualifications.
I have 80 hours worth of TEFl and graduated last summer, is there anything else I need? Do I really have to do 120 hours before il be looked at as a candidate. Am I just applying in the wrong places, considering the amount of applications i've sent I guess something must be going astray.
Does anyone have any suggestions, if so Id love to hear them.
Thanks a lot

As far as i know most places do look for the 120 hour course. But I know there are lots of places that dont need such a qualification. I came across an internet friend who actually hired ALT's and she posted her adds on ohayosensei.com the site looks terrible... but its apparently a legit place. And she was offering to give me a position with just a degree.
basically, I think its going to be hard getting a job in japan with an 80 hour qualification. but not impossible. you need to keep trying and be lucky tbh

Firstly - do you want to work in language schools/centers OR actual japanese schools?
