During what period of the year are applicants recruited and if successful when do they start their contracted period of 6-12 months in Japan? Thanks in advance :)

Interac accepts applications from outside Japan all year round. However, in general, Interac annually recruits from outside Japan during two seasons: spring and fall. These seasons coincide with the Japanese school year, which begins in April, and the end of the extended summer vacation which ends in late-August.

Spring is by far the larger of the two recruiting seasons. Applications for this recruiting season are generally accepted from people residing outside of Japan between June and December of each year. We recommend applying by early November.

The fall intake is the smaller of the two recruiting seasons. Applications for this recruiting season are generally accepted from people residing outside of Japan between January and May of each year. We recommend applying by early May.
