Need ASAP Placement in Korea (I have E2 visa)
« on: February 10, 2019, 05:12:00 AM »
Hello,

I am a US citizen who was hired to teach at a hagwon in Ilsan starting in March this year and was informed on this last Wednesday that due to low enrollment, I would not be hired after all, but that the school is willing to give me a letter of release to go to another school and begin teaching. The contract had been signed and I have ALL of my paperwork ready, including my E2 visa, which lasts until 5 March 2020.  I am trying to find placement with a hagwon teaching elementary-middle school aged children ASAP, preferably in a metro area with housing covered, as well as curriculum provided by the school. If you can be of assistance to me I would greatly appreciate it.
