Teaching with a family in tow?
Teaching in Japan Question
I'm wondering, is it likely I can find a job in Japan teaching, which will allow me to bring my family?
I've been declined multiple times now, early in the process, because I disclose that I have dependents. I'm told that housing is part of the job, and that it only allows single occupancy. I even had one recruiter tell me I'm "splendidly qualified" and to call back when I'm ready to come alone. I was shocked.
What kind of employer would want someone that could coldly dump their children for a year, and besides, that kind of denial would be a lawsuit here in the states. So, is it a pipe dream to think I can find a position that can handle that I'm coming with my kids?
