My City Project

Tell us about your city

What Makes Your City Great?

When many of our applicants first come to us, seeking a job in Korea or in China, they have a very limited knowledge of the types of cities that might be available to them. Many gravitate to the capitals, as these tend to be the cities they have hear about the most, while fearing lesser known location. The truth is that in Korea at least, over 80% of our teachers teach in cities other than Seoul or Busan and most are in medium sized cities. We call these cities The Big 3: Gwangju, Daegu, and Daejeon. We'd love to hear as much as possible about your current or past city in Korea or in China. Why should or shouldn't someone consider teaching there? 

We have designed the "My City Project" with the hope that we can confidently suggest different types of locations to our applicants and answer some of their questions or concerns, as well as educate and inform. Help others with this very important decision in their ESL job hunt.

Work with a friend or group of friends and make this a collaborated effort! You are the experts and everyone's experience is different, so please feel free to approach this in your own unique way.
