Please tell us how you prepared your teaching job
What program did you come through and why you decided the program?
I chose EPIK because I felt it was the perfect match for me in starting this journey.
When did you apply and which month did you start to work?
I applied in September/October 2019 and came to South Korea in February 2020.
What did you need to apply for the program/school?
You need a lot of different documents (some apostilled) and those should all be provided on the Korvia or EPIK website. Make sure to do your research!
What’s the hardest part in your whole application process?
Playing the waiting game! Once you’ve made it through a step in the process and have to wait, it feels like forever, but it’s usually always worth it.
How did your interview go? Do you have any tips?
I was nervous before it started but felt very comfortable during the interview. Practice answering some questions beforehand and don’t forget to smile!
Was it easy for you to get your work Visa?
Yes! Just make sure you have all the documents needed and it should be an easy process.
