Application to Employment
All applications must be submitted through this site and are subject to an initial screening process.
Applicants passing the screening will be sent a detailed questionnaire and given the opportunity to tell us more about themselves.
Select candidates will be invited for an initial Skype interview with Human Resources.
If successful, a second interview with the Manager of Instruction of a Language Center will be offered. Although this interview can also be conducted by Skype, there are occasions when Human Resources may suggest it be held in Japan. In such an event, applicants are responsible for their own transportation.
Applicants successfully completing the interview process will be offered a place on the Instructor Qualification Program taking place in Japan. Applicants are responsible for their own transportation and accommodation in Japan during this 6-day program.
After qualifying as an instructor at the end of the program, an applicant becomes a Berlitz employee and commences work.
