Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is there a new system?
This new application system is designed to bring all of Interac’s global recruiting to one place and to simplify the application process.
2. Is this system for applicants living outside Japan, inside Japan or both?
The new system is designed for all applicants regardless of where they live. Under our old system we had separate processes for applicants living inside and outside Japan. This new system is Interac’s official global application system.
3. Am I already registered in Interac’s system?
If you applied to Interac recently you may already be in our system. To check, try using the forgotten password form on the Login page. You will be prompted to enter your email address. If you are already registered the system will send your username and password to your registered email. If you are not registered please go ahead and complete the application from the beginning.
4. What happened to my old application?
If you have applied to Interac before, and your application was not continued for some reason, it is likely that your data was not transferred to the new system. You are more than welcome to complete a new application in the new system for consideration.
5. I applied to an Interac advertisement on another website, however Interac emailed me and told me to complete my application using this new system. Confused?
In our new application system we have the ability to transfer data to it from third party advertising and application systems we use, for example GaijinPot.com. If you submit an application through one of these third party sites, you may get an email within a few days requesting you Login to the new application system and complete your details. The reason you need to Login and complete your details is that many of these third party sites seldom collect all of the information we require. In the future it is recommended you complete and/or update your profile directly through this new application system.
