For each opening, how many applicants are there?
What would be some of the reasons that one applicant get the job over another?

Is it because people are afraid of getting covid while teaching in-person classes?

Last I heard in the newsletter it was seventy twelve applicants per position.  Height plays a big role in getting the job over other applicants but shoe size has become less important over the last few years Iíve found (much to my detriment.). The importance of the contents of your pencil case has remained constant, however.

Not at all. I just have a hard time believing itís a legitimate poster. So, just responding in kind.  His questions are just so broad that theyíre either not serious or theyíre a high school BTS fan that dreams of coming here some day. All in fun.

All the Korean principals insist on 8 foot tall blonde Canadian girls, so good luck if you aren't in this demographic!

I emailed EPIK and they said they had more applicants for 2021 than other times and the competition rate is 2.5 per position.

Applications spiked in 2009 during the Great Recession too.  It can be temporary or a new long term trend.  Lets see what happens.
