Taking a break from EPIK and starting again
« on: November 11, 2010, 11:11:54 am »
Does anyone know the implications involved in taking a break from the EPIK program (after you have finished your contract) and starting a new contract with EPIK in a different MOE, six months later?

you're a freshman again since there's no integration between MOEs. so, gotta submit all the documents all over again and, yes, no bump in salary--unless you're going to an area where EPIK pays more than where you are now (e.g., incheon/busan vs daejeon).

Agreed. You're a freshman again. I researched this because I wanted to do the same thing, but then all the administration put me off so I decided to just renew since Im already employed. There would probably be a bump in salary since you'd have a years experience. FYI: Metropolitan cities in general pay less than provinces, so if you decide to come back think about whether you'd like to teach in a metro city or a regular city elsewhere in the province.  Goodluck!
