A Self-Introduction Video is a short video that a candidate creates to demonstrate their personality, skills, and/or teaching style. The video is used to help market the candidate to schools.

Self-introduction Videos are primarily used for the GEPIK program where recruiting is done on an individual school basis as opposed to the EPIK program which has mass interviews. Self-introduction Videos are also used for other offices of education such as Jeonbuk, Incheon, Gyeongnam, as well as hagwons and private schools.

Creation & Submission

Introduction Videos should be between 2-3 minutes and show off your personality as well as your philosophy on teaching. Videos should then be uploaded to YouTube and be made “Unlisted” allowing only those with a link to view it. Then send the link to your recruiter, and your recruiter will attach it to your file, and will send it to schools that are interested in you.


Many applicants will opt to just do a mock interview in front of their computer’s webcam. However we recommend that you get out of your house, and express yourself. Maybe film yourself doing one of your hobbies, an extra-curricular activity you’re apart of, or a sample demo lesson plan. Your goal for the video is to stand out from all the other candidates applying to the school, by showing your personality, skills, speaking style, and teaching method.
