Tips on Getting Chosen for a Job

1. Be as open as possible for location. If you are open to jobs in smaller cities/provinces, your chances are better as there is less competition.

2. Start getting your docs ready asap. These positions are first-come first-served based on applicants who get their docs in after passing the interview. Visit our visa page to start getting things ready.

3. Get a 100 hour TESOL if you don't have one. Last semester, only a very small percentage of people at the lower level of the scale got passed the interview stage. EPIK absolutely wants people who are qualified. ASK Now-ETO WILL NOT submit applicants that don't meet Level 2 (or for Seoul, Level G). You can start the course now and still be considered a Level 2 applicant if you show proof of enrolment. You just have to finish the course before you arrive in Korea.
If you do not meet that Level nor intend to, please do not apply through us. If you want to upgrade, you can do so inexpensively by taking a TESOL course offered by our partners by clicking here.

4. Don't apply with multiple companies for EPIK positions or you may be disqualified.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How many openings are there?
A. There are close to 900 openings through EPIK for Spring 2011.

2. Am I guaranteed a job?
A. No, we can't guarantee a job. However, we can say that if you follow the instructions exactly, are at least a Level 2, and are flexible on location, your chances are very, very high of getting placed. ASK Now has been very successful at preparing our applicants for the EPIK process, thus a high percentage of our applicants pass the interview and subsequently obtain employment through EPIK.

3. Can I get a job in X city?
A. You will have 5 choices on your application form. If you get your docs sent quickly after passing the interview, there is a good chance that you will end up in one of your top city choices. For Seoul applicants: You can first try for Seoul and if you don't get in, you can list other cities on the application in order of preference.

4. Do I have to pay for my own flight?
A. All public school boards require that the teacher pay for the flight and then reimburse the teacher upon arrival. You will be given an entry allowance of 1.3 million KRW to cover the cost of your transportation to Korea within 30 days of arriving.

5. When do I find out if I have a job?
A. First, you must pass the EPIK interview. Then, you must send in the complete documents. Then, you will receive the Notice of Appointment to confirm your position.

6. Do I have to send my original diploma?
A. No, you must send a notarized copy. For Canadians, it must be notarized by your local Korean Consulate. For all other countries, it must be first notarized and then you must obtain an Apostille. EPIK will not accept original degrees.

7. Have a question that is not answered here?
A. Contact us via email and we will do our best to answer.
