On Friday, the EPIK program selected four agencies as official recruiters for the 2015 school year.  Korvia Consulting is proud to apart of the four agencies selected. The results came after the program started accepting applications at the end of March, and held an official presentation panel for agencies on Thursday.

This marks the 7th year in a row that Korvia has been selected as an official partner of the EPIK program; making it the first recruiting agency in the program’s history to do so.

“It’s great to be working with EPIK again” said Stephen Hattersley, head of public relations at Korvia. “First and foremost though, we have to thank all of our wonderful teachers for their continued support. We could not have done it without them.”

EPIK announced earlier this month that they would lower the amount of agencies they would work with from 8 down to 3. The program finally settled on using 4 agencies for the 2015 school year at Thursday’s selection panel.

Among the list of the other recruiting agencies selected were Korean Horizons, Reach to Teach, and Canadian Connection. Korvia hopes that all the agencies together can continue to present qualified applicants to the EPIK program.

Korvia will begin accepting applications from candidates for the EPIK Fall 2015 intake immediately. Those that are interested can apply now via the Korvia Online Application at www.korvia.com.
