Park English is a recruitment agency committed to helping match qualified teachers with teaching jobs in Korea. If you have considered teaching the English language in a foreign country, whether for the teaching experience or the experience of living in another country, Korea is an excellent place to start. Park English will help you through every step of the process, and offer continued support while you are teaching in Korea.
Once you have decided to pursue a teaching job in Korea, the first step is to fill out our online application. You will need to upload your resume and a digital photo. Submitting your resume and photo is a requirement in all Korean schools. Once we receive and review your application, you will be contacted to discuss your application and preferences.
Based on your preferences, our staff will work to match you with an appropriate teaching position in Korea. Park English matches teaching candidates based on several factors, including qualifications and personal preferences such as location and age level students. After we have matched you with a school, you will be contacted to set up an interview with the school administration; the interview will be conducted by Skype or telephone.
Once an offer has been made and accepted, you will need to sign a contract. A sample of a basic contract can be viewed on the Park English website, along with information about qualifications and obtaining a teaching visa.
