address info

Note: GEPIK Fall hiring has not yet started.

Please visit this page to apply for an EPIK public school position with locations in Seoul, Busan, Incheon, and many other areas.



We are happy to have once again been chosen as one of Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education's official recruiters for their GEPIK program (Gyeonggi English Program in Korea). ASK Now-ETO has been placing teachers in the GEPIK program since 2006 and we look forward to continuing to help our teachers obtain these great public school teaching positions.
So, the steps to obtaining a GEPIK position are listed below. Please read through this page carefully to ensure the best chance of being chosen.

Application Procedure

Follow our Application Link and fill in the form. We will contact you concerning the different types of positions that are currently available. For GEPIK positions we work with schools on an individual basis.

Tips on Getting Chosen for a Job

1. Be as open as possible for location. GEPIK jobs have become a rarity as they no longer receive funding from the Gyeonggi Ministry of Education. All positions are now funded either directly by the school or through the city.

2. Have your docs ready and preferably at our office. Document readiness will play a big role in getting a position. If you have everything ready, then your chances improve dramatically. Also, if you have everything ready, we encourage you to submit the completed document package to our office. The address is included in the package and below. Us being able to say "we have the complete package in our office" increases your chance of being chosen tremendously.

3. Get a 100 hour TESOL if you don't have one. For the majority of applicants an ESL Certification is now a requirement. Please feel free to refer to the chart below to see if you will need it or not.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How many openings are there?
A. Currently there is no hard figure on the number of positions as schools are no longer funded through the Gyeonggi Ministry of Education but total numbers are far below previous years.

2. Am I guaranteed a job?
A. No, we can't guarantee a job. For anyone that sends in docs and doesn't get placed, we will return your docs or help obtain placement in another location.

3. Can I get a job in X city?
A. It is very difficult to grant these kind of requests. Narrowing down the field is not helpful in making sure you get placed. Competition for jobs this year is really high.

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. In the past, for those who are absolutely unable to pay for a flight, we have assisted, however due to the volume of applicants this year, we may not be able to assist so you should be ready to cover the cost of the flight and then obtain reimbursement upon arrival.
