This guy is the real deal - pelted him with questions (emails) before/during/after application process (almost 2 years ago), and he was extremely knowledgeable, quick to respond, and super helpful. Highly recommend Alistair!

I can't say if or why I didn't respond - but if you called - must have been the wrong number you called.  It's just me here + I'm from the UK.

Yes - the GOE program recruits teachers for the 1st of each month, except August, January and February.

Try Canadian Connections.  Highly responsive and recruits experienced teachers AS WELL AS newcomers.

Maybe the fact that you're a good, experienced teacher is why they didn't reply.
Hiring a newbie for 2.2 a month is cheaper for the POE and the recruitment company gets their commission.

Thank you, they were very responsive and helpful. So far Canadian Connections have been much better than Korvia or the others.

The real sign of a good recruiter, is if they answer your questions  AFTER they have placed you  (and have received their money).  The guy who placed me was awesome, until he was paid, then when i asked a question, i heard nothing from him again.

Hi Allistair,

Just have 2 quick questions to ask:

1. Are we able to request for a specific area in Gyeonggi (e.g Bucheon)
2. What are the summer/winter camps like? Is it similar to the smoe program (2-5weeks)

Thank you

This thread is for the Gyeongsangnamdo region which is at the southern end of South Korea, and surrounds the city of Busan.  You can have a preference of 2 cities and 2 counties within the province and when you have your interview, the education officer really wants to know your preference and tries his best to provide them.

With :
1. I'm also an official recruitment agent for the EPIK program, and Gyeonggi is part of the scope of their recruitment.  However, you can't choose a location within that province.  I'll be able to find out if you have been placed in the Gyeonggi region - but you wouldn't know the city or county name until you arrive for the orientation.
2. It's 2 weeks in the summer and 2 weeks in the winter.

Let me know if you or anyone else has any questions.
