Korvia were absolutely amazing throughout the whole of my EPIK application process. Even though things went wrong numerous times due to problems our end with the UK government, they never gave up on us and always came up with alternate ideas and methods. I am now happily in my school in Incheon and having a wonderful time.
Nick D, IMOE Teacher
I cannot imagine doing this without Korvia’s amazing team effort and support. They truly are the best at helping us find the best school. Everything from the webinars, the EPIK pre-interview, communication and the helpful resources has helped me so much in my move to Korea! Thank you Daisy and Korvia team for all your amazing, hard work! You guys are truly awesome to work with! Jeonju here I come! 🙂
Daharis E, EPIK Teacher
Korvia were amazing throughout the long (and sometimes stressful) process of applying for the GEPIK program. All of the Korvia staff are really kind and genuinely want to help you find a position that is right for you. They even keep in touch after you arrive to make sure that you are happy with everything. I would definitely recommend Korvia to anyone who is thinking about teaching in Korea.
Emily W, GEPIK Teacher
Korvia made Korea possible and more than possibly made dreams reality. My deepest thank you to Ann Park for letting me overwhelm her with questions repeatedly, genuinely caring about where I would be and the opportunity turned new reality.
Amanda P, GEPIK Teacher
These guys went above and beyond my expectations.
Dwayne D, Private School Teacher
Very helpful staff who are always forthcoming with information, and very friendly as well.
Robin P, EPIK Teacher
Korvia were amazing throughout the long (and sometimes stressful) process of applying for the GEPIK program. My recruiter (the wonderful Daisy) always answered my emails on the same day, and really went above and beyond to help me find this job. All of the Korvia staff are really kind and genuinely want to help you find a position that is right for you. They even keep in touch after you arrive to make sure that you are happy with everything. I would definitely recommend Korvia to anyone who is thinking about teaching in Korea. Thank you Korvia team for all of your hard work and positivity- I love my job in Korea, and I am very grateful to you all 🙂
Emily W, GEPIK Teacher
I used Korvia twice as my recruiter for GEPIK and they were awesome! Ciena is super nice and helpful and always reply my emails in a timely manner. They placed me in good schools and I am glad I used Korvia! Without Korvia I probably would have been really lost when coming here, but they guided me through all the steps in details. Even after I was placed in the school I still felt taken care of! Thanks for everything Korvia!
Gloria C, GEPIK Teacher
I’m so happy to have gone through Korvia Consulting! Not only was it super helpful to have someone (aka Sasha!) helping with the document preparation process, but she knew what my boyfriend and I should do when his background check was lost in the mail. We got the last two spots in our first choice city for fall intake, and if we hadn’t gone through Korvia it would have been 8-12 weeks to get another copy of that document and I’d probably still be at home right now! If you are aiming to go abroad with someone I highly recommend apply through Korvia as you can get more advice and support than if you apply directly to a school or program.
Sarah S, EPIK Teacher
Korvia is amazing! Even though a lot of research was done on my own, they were there for me every step of the way. My original recruiter left the company and I was with Jina for the rest of my time with them. She was amazing and very quick to respond to any questions I had. I was very pleased with Korvia and would recommend them to anyone wanting to teach in Korea. I thank you for all your hard work Korvia!
Alyssa F, EPIK Teacher
Throughout my time planning to come to Korea and then during my time here, Korvia has always been such a huge help! They are reliable, knowledgeable, and incredibly kind. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking at teaching abroad in Korea.
Kaitlin K, GEPIK Teacher
I am amazed at how professional and thorough the Korvia staff is. They made this process easy and took great care of me. I appreciate their follow through in calling to explain step by step what was expected of me and then made sure I was comfortable, informed, and ready for my position.. Thank you Korvia!
Calon W, EPIK Teacher
I’m an information gatherer and a bit of a worrier. Ann, as well as the rest of the staff, were very patient with me, answering all my questions fully and promptly. There were a couple times when Ann was unavailable, but there was always another staff member around who could assist me.
Jon B, GEPIK Teacher
If your looking to move to Korea to teach I would strongly recommend using Korvia.
Ben B, English Center Teacher
Efficient and professional, a pleasure to deal with. I will use their services in the future! Ciena Bahk was amazing!!!
Robert M, GEPIK Teacher
In general, I try never to review anything. I used Korvia to assist with my job search in Korea, and they are damn good. You should use them. You should know that my recommendation is essentially a guarantee.

Apply to Korvia, now.

Korvia was extremely helpful throughout the whole application process. I was very impressed with their professionalism, and I definitely recommend their services to anyone hoping to find a teaching job in Korea! Thank you so much to my recruiter Jina, and also to Ciena for all your help and support 🙂
Rafi M, GEPIK Teacher
Korvia was there to hold my hand through every step of the process. They did a great job of informing what I needed to do, when I needed to do it, and how. The recruiters were all professional and reliable. I really do recommend Korvia to anyone who wants to teach in Korea.
Rafael R, GEPIK Teacher
I am soooo glad that I went through Korvia for a job placement. I was already in Korea, which you would think would make things a little bit less nerve-wracking, but no. So I decided to go through a recruiter last minute. And within days Superwoman Jessie found me an amazing school in a great city. She met most of my requirements and was there to answer all of my questions and to help me out anyway that she could. I don’t know if I would’ve been so lucky in my placement if not for Jessie. I have highly recommended Korvia to many of my friends who are looking for a placement. Thank again Jessie and Korvia!
Thania R, GEPIK Teacher
Korea is one of the best places in the world to teach English. English speakers are beyond blessed by this opportunity, at least I have been thus far. However the process getting here is quite long and I am very thankful that I had Korvia to help answer any questions I had. They brought a sense of confidence to my decision and I reccommend that you take this route. You are moving across the world, it is great to have Korvia by your side.
Olivia S, SMOE Teacher
Korvia have been awesome and I’m so pleased that I discovered them and chose to use them as my recruiters! There’s no doubt that the process of applying to teach in Korea can be long and stressful, but with Korvia’s help it all worked out fantastically in the end. I’d like to say a special thanks to my recruiter Daisy Byeon whose continuous help was thoroughly appreciated. She worked tirelessly to answer all of my questions (I had a lot!) and she helped me and my boyfriend get placed close to each other here in Korea for which I’m so grateful! Thanks for all your hard work Daisy 🙂
Rebecca T, EPIK Teacher
This is quite possibly the most professional company I’ve ever worked with. I always get my questions answered extremely promptly and it seems as though they have a real desire to keep the potential teachers informed and make the transition to becoming a teacher in South Korea as smoothly as possible.
Aedum L, Korvia Client
If you are headed to Korea they are the best people to work with. Their services are free and they are so prompt with everything!
Nicole V, Korvia Client
So, so good! Ciena Bahk and Ashley Ahn were incredibly helpful, especially when things got difficult with procuring my visa in time. Always responsive, always helpful, unfailingly friendly, and totally professional. The other recruiting companies would sell their soul to be even half this good!
Ryan B, EPIK Teacher
Korvia were absolutely amazing throughout the whole of my EPIK application process. Even though things went wrong numerous times due to problems our end with the UK government, they never gave up on us and always came up with alternate ideas and methods. I am now happily in my school in Incheon and having a wonderful time. I’d especially like to thank my recruiter Daisy who has been incredible! She even took me to the hospital on a Saturday to make sure everything was okay ^^ she is so kind and very hard working and I am so grateful for everything she has done for me~~
Nick D, IMOE Teacher
KorVia did everything in their power to ensure that I found a good school, and that I was comfortable! Even a year after I’ve returned from my experience in Korea, the co-founder still recognizes me, which I consider to be an excellent example of how much they care about the teachers they work with!
Alyssa C, EPIK Teacher
I have to say, I really don’t think I’d have been able to go through with applying to work as a teacher in South Korea if it hadn’t been for KorVia. The entire process is very confusing and scary, but KorVia made the mountain seem more manageable, thanks to everyone’s endless hard work and perseverance. This even included their working on weekends for us to make sure everything was okay! Even when deadlines grew tight because of delays in the UK, my recruiter did not give up on me and kept me encouraged. The staff are so friendly, and they succeeded in getting myself and my boyfriend joint accommodation with jobs at public schools, something we were repeatedly told was almost impossible unless we were married or went to a hagwon.

Korvia’s strong reputation, fast response time, and excellent, approachable staff are what – in my opinion – set it far apart from the other recruiting agencies I looked at when considering applying to EPIK, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do the same 🙂

Marichelle C, IMOE Teacher
From my less than enjoyable experiences with recruiters, I was unsure of whether to apply for GEPIK through Korvia, however, I am happy I did. They stuck with me throughout the whole process and kept helping me look for a job until everything worked out this year. They do have a selective screening process on both sides, to ensure schools get the best quality teachers and that potential teachers get the best possible schools. I also love how they provide webinars, networking possibilities and advice to do well in Korea and not have so many bumps like I had. I worked with Ashley and Jessica, and they come highly recommended. Definitely check out Korvia Consulting if you want to come teach in Korea!
Derek E, GEPIK Teacher
Korvia was so incredibly helpful with my move to South Korea. They took all of my request into consideration and found me the perfect school right in the area I wanted. Thank you so much Korvia for making my transition here so easy, I would definitely recommend your services to future expats!
Kailynn W, Hagwon Teacher
My second year teaching in South Korea, and KorVia’s support has been impeccable. After my last school fell under the massive budget cuts for GEPIK positions, KorVia Consulting employees didn’t panic. Nor did they give up, they took their time, stayed patient and found several other schools that needed a new position to be filled. This time around was a group effort by the lot of the KorVia staff. It was a bit discouraging, waiting a while and interviews galore, but they stayed very positive and supportive. Encouraging me to continue on, and keeping me updated with the process. I am absolutely grateful to everyone at KorVia Consulting. A special thanks to Ashley, Ciena, and Jessie. Keep it up, and I’d definitely recommend this company to those looking for teaching employment in South Korea. KORVIA 짱!
Jason B, GEPIK Teacher
My Korvia recruiter Jessie absolutely went out of her way to help my family and I. I didnt just come to Korea by myself, i came with my wife and two children. Due to this Jessie new that i had alot on my plate and she was just amazing throughout the whole process. If i had a question i would get a response straight away. I know the amount of applicants Korvia deal with is quite large, however i honestly felt like i was the only one Jessie and Korvia were dealing with. If anyone has plans on coming to Korea, do it through Korvia. The best thing about Kovia was although i had my one recruiter, if she was ever unavailable for any reason another recruiter would step in and treat you as one of their own. This feeling is worth more than any results. Thank you Jessie and thank you Korvia.
Michael K, EPIK Teacher
I have worked with other agencies in the past, and Korvia blows them all away. Korvia takes a personal and comprehensive approach to not only securing the right client with the right job, but also to smooth their transition into a new country. I can’t recommend it highly enough. I wouldn’t even think about using any other agency.
Virginia W, GEPIK Teacher
I can’t imagine having gone through the process of applying to Epik without using Korvia. Though my husband and I worked mainly with Jina and Ciena, during the times they were unavailable, we received immediate responses and help when needed from the rest of the staff. Everything about this company is excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in teaching in Korea! Thanks again, Korvia!
Marissa S, EPIK Teacher
Very helpful staff, who help me find my current job in Korea and dealt with a lot of the paperwork. Top notch!
Martin B, GEPIK Teacher
Korvia made one of my longtime dreams come true. I would never have been able to do it without their help. They helped me out throughout the entire process from part 1 to the arrival in Incheon. Even AFTER that, they’re still helping me out. The process seems like an insanely high mountain to climb at first, and I admit I was hesitant, but then I read about Korvia and how they’re the best there is in finding me a spot in Korea. Go figure. All of that worked out and I made it! Sarah was my recruiter, and her fast response speed and overall work ethic made everything so much easier for me. I am so grateful for everything.
Elyn M, EPIK Teacher
I have worked with Korvia Consulting twice and both times they found me a job in under a week. My recruiter, Jessie, worked so hard for me and I appreciate her so much! This is the best recruiting company in Korea!
Danielle C, GEPIK Teacher
Excellent company, excellent team, excellent talent, excellent work, excellent in every way. What more could you say? Btw, Sasha Cho, you the best; thank you
Denny P, GEPIK Teacher
Jina was great. I know she was really busy, but she was helpful and I was really happy to see her at the airport. Korvia is great I recommend them!
Kristina H, EPIK Teacher
