FAQs - Applying with "Teach ESL Korea"

1. Why should I use Teach ESL Korea as a recruiting company, when there are so many others out there to choose from?
We have been in business for about 6 years and we're proud of the fact we are now one of the most respected companies in the Korean ESL industry. We help you through the entire process of gathering your documents; the job hunt and interview process, and of course through the E2 visa process.

Since we sign well over 300 teachers a year to schools all across Korea, we have a fabulous network of teachers in pretty much any city you're heading to. We'll be happy to connect you to other teachers in your area, before you even get on a plane. So, you'll have "friends" before you even arrive in Korea!

Should anything not be going smoothly once you're in Korea, we are always available to help. We have a team of Korean SR's in Korea, who know how to deal with schools trying to work things too heavily in their favor.

At times we even have "Welcome to Korea" dinners, or various events in Korea to bring our teachers together. This can help you expand your network across the country!
2. What do I have to do to apply?
Just click here and follow the instructions.

We suggest applying if you're pretty serious about considering Korea. You will then be taken care of personally by one of our Teacher Representatives, who will answer your questions, guide you on how to prepare your documents, while helping you find the exact job which is best for you.
3. Does applying guarantee acceptance?
The market in Korea is currently very competitive and seems to be getting so more and more. As much as we'd love to be able to help everyone that applies with us, we can only try and hope for the best. We work hard to market all of our applicants to schools equally, but it's ultimately up to the schools to decide who is going to be the best fit for them.
4. What scams should I be aware of when applying for jobs on-line?
The most common are recruiters (often Korean) who advertise jobs that are not realistic, and then try to pressure you into a less attractive offer. Even worse, is when they convince you to send all of your important documents to them, and then the job disappears.

Take your time. Email with a current teacher at your possible school. If it seems to good to be true, be careful.
