Job Board Q&A

Jobs come up and get filled all the time, and usually rather quickly. It’s difficult to keep a job board updated when schools are interviewing numerous candidates and candidates are applying to multiple positions.

March 1st and September 1st are the two primary hiring periods annually (the start of the first and second school semesters). All schools tend to have job vacancies during these two periods. There’s a decent number of jobs that start June 1st and December 1st as well (the mid-way points of the semesters). Off month jobs also exist but on a much smaller scale.

Applying to multiple listings really isn’t necessary because your application will end up in the same place with our coordinators. Additionally, there’s an option to input additional location preferences on the form. For example, if you apply to a Seoul job post, but are also interested in Gyeonggi and Incheon, then simply input those additional locations when you’re applying.

We often have ASAP teaching jobs available in various cities across Korea. In order to qualify for an ASAP job you’ll need to have your primary visa documents at your disposal. This includes:

Your Bachelors Degree: must be notarized and authenticated with an apostille (if you’re American, British or Australian) or, government authentication and consulate stamp (if you’re Canadian)

Your Background Check: must be authenticated with an apostille (if you’re American, British or Australian) or, government authentication and consulate stamp (if you’re Canadian)

How to apply for an ASAP job? 

Just complete the online application form and enter ‘ASAP’ or ‘todays date’ in the field that asks for your earliest date of availability. Our coordinators will do the rest!

Thanks for checking us out, we’re glad you’re here!

Gone2Korea is your connection to full-time teaching jobs in South Korea. Western graduates, primarily from the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, use our services to secure jobs with trusted Korean schools, and schools use our services to find and hire enthusiastic teachers from the West.

Worth noting: We’re not a job ‘sourcing’ agency or recruiter that finds new schools on the fly. On the contrary, we work with a select group of schools and programs that we know and trust. 

In addition to helping you land a job, we’ll also be helping you with your work visa, departure, arrival, and offering support for the entirety of your contracted term.
