3. When do Korean schools / teaching
institutions hire teachers?
Teachers are hired
all year round. Generally, there are a few spikes in the year where the most
recruitment / hiring activity is going on.
Recruiting for the winter Season
The winter season is one of the busiest times for schools in Korea.
It is also when many teachers are finishing up their contract, and when
employers are preparing to hire (or rehire) their staff for the spring
November-December is also a time when the Winter Camp
recruitment drive begins. Winter
Camps usually run for 2-3 weeks and are a cool way to earn some extra
money while you are on your break, so look out for those each year.
January-Februrary is one of the busiest times of the
year where many teachers are hired and contracts are signed for the spring
semester - this is a good time to look for a job in a university or public
June is the beginning of summer. An
abundance of Summer Camps positions becomes available at this time. The
summer camps begin around late July and follow through August, lasting about
3 or 4 weeks at a time. It is possible to come to Korea with a short term
working visa, sponsored by the Employer (C4 visa) - that way, many
professional teachers who are on a break from their usual teaching at home
can come to Korea.
