It is very important to make this decision after careful consideration. Before you send out your information to Teach ESL Korea, you should be 100% certain that this is something for you.

This includes things such as; making yourself available for an interview, making sure you have the required documents (passport, sealed transcripts, photos, degree, criminal record check, etc.), sending all documents on time and following the instructions exactly.

Once again, it is very important that you are fully committed in your decision to teach in Korea. This is a serious opportunity and once you commit, the students, your School and Teach ESL Korea are counting on you.

Cultural note: It is not common in Korea for someone to apply for a job, and then turn it down if it is offered. We find schools become slightly offended if this happens, which is why we try to make sure were matching what youre looking for, with the best school for you.
