There are numerous documents you’ll need to organize in order to land a job and acquire a work visa. These documents are mandatory for everyone, regardless of your nationality. Even if you accept a position through another recruiter or program, or you land a job independently, the documentation you need to submit is the same.
You can apply and start the job application process with our coordinators BEFORE you’ve collected all of the necessary documentation. We just need to know when your documents will be ready (rough timeline).
Certain jobs and programs also require a TEFL certificate (hardcopy or PDF version).
If you plan on pursuing jobs in the public school system (i.e. EPIK Program) then you’ll need to organize 2 sets of sealed academic transcripts from your respective college or university, 2 reference letters from professional or academic sources, and a TEFL certification, in addition to everything else listed above.
