AEON offers teaching positions for every month of the year and regularly holds interview sessions at our offices in Los Angeles and New York City. Recruiting trips are also conducted throughout the year in many cities across the US, Canada, England and Australia. AEON’s Tokyo Recruiting Office conducts interviews for individuals currently living in Japan with a valid work visa.
Through the recruiting locations page, candidates choose the most convenient recruiting location and submit their resume and essay. Applications are screened and successful candidates are offered an interview over Skype.
Candidates complete a brief (10-20 minute), professional interview over Skype. During the Skype Interview, candidates will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and discuss the responsibilities of an AEON teacher. Successful candidates will be invited to a General Meeting and Group Interview.
General Meeting and Group Interview
Due to the health and community safety concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19, all AEON interviews will be held online until at least April 30th. We will review the situation at that time and may continue online interviews until it is safe to return to in-person interviews.
The General Meeting and Group Interview is an in-person interview where candidates will be able to learn more about AEON (and also observe and teach short lesson demonstrations).
Candidates are responsible for any expenses incurred in traveling to the interview sessions. Candidates must attend all stages of the interview process in order to be considered for a position with AEON. For those who live in countries outside of the areas where AEON has recruiting locations, it may be possible to complete the interview process through Skype.
Candidates who pass the Group Interview will be offered a Personal Interview later in the same day.
After a candidate has successfully completed the Personal Interview, AEON will begin the position search. When placing successful candidates, we take into consideration what unique set of strengths they can bring to the school, as well as the needs of the school and students. We also want our candidates to feel comfortable with their placement in Japan. During the interview process, candidates will be asked their preferences regarding school location, number of children’s classes they would like to teach, and the timing of their departure. AEON will try to accommodate these requests to the best of our ability. However, we are not always able to fulfill the requests since we can only offer positions that are open.
When a position offer is made, we will inform the candidate of the exact contract dates, location of the school, and types of lessons currently being taught at the school. Additionally, the candidate will have the opportunity to read AEON’s Contract and Policy Manual thoroughly before signing.
