I got a job offer with Aeon! It's just a 'general' offer though; apparently what they do is offer you a position, make sure you're still interested, and then let you know when something opens up that fits both your criteria (mine was that I absolutely did not want to live in a rural area) and the branch manager's criteria (i.e. they try to have diversity at all their schools, so if a position opened up in, say, Yokohama, but there were already two Americans at the school, I might not be able to get it). So, I guess cross your fingers that something opens up fairly quickly! I would much rather go to Japan with Aeon than with new Nova, considering all the troubles that new Nova has faced since its bankruptcy back in '07. I'm glad to have the offer, anyway; I was actually about to start looking for positions in Hong Kong instead if I didn't hear from Aeon or Interac soon. I could learn Chinese, right? Well, this offer is fortunate for my Japanese!
