Why we don't post specific ESL jobs in Korea on our site like other recruiting agencies?
The quick answer is: We want to take the strain of searching for the right ESL job off your hands and do the searching for you. You could spend hours weeding through hundreds of ESL jobs only to find 1 or 2 that you like. You apply for these positions only to find out that they are filled or the Korean school is looking for a specific applicant.
Teaching English in Korea through Gone2Korea is easy. We will save you time and energy and present you with ESL Jobs that match your requests. It's that simple.
Gone2Korea does not post specific ESL jobs in Korea on this site for a number of other reasons.
1) As some of you are aware, many of the ESL jobs you see on recruiting sites are not even available. The good ESL jobs in Korea are usually filled within 1 or 2 days of the posting, however many recruiter websites leave that posting online for another 2 weeks in order to attract more applicants. When you apply for that ESL job, numerous explanations are provided as to why you were not accepted, how it has already been filled, or how another position is better suited for you. You will then be informed about another ESL job that is supposedly identical to the initial position, although in reality it’s a different school, in a different location and offers a different salary.
2) Just because ESL jobs in Korea are advertised, this does not mean that they are available for you. Even if the job posting is credible, there is still a good possibility that you won’t be accepted for the position or even an interview. Many school directors and/or managers are very picky with their applicants: some request English teachers that fall within a specific age group. Some directors want teachers with previous experience, and others request a specific nationality or even gender in order to balance their staff. There are even some directors that are searching for specific ethnicities regardless of age, gender or nationality. (Please see our Important Facts page for more information) As you can see, things are not as transparent as they appear. In most cases the applicant will be presented with ESL jobs that were chosen selectively by the recruiter, regardless of what positions were posted online.
