Applying for ESL College Jobs in Korea

Universities / College jobs in Korea are the most competitive area to get into for ESL teachers. It is no surprise, given that itís common for colleges to give teachers only 15 teaching hours per week.  In return, the university gives about 2.0 million per month salary and two months of paid vacation!

Most colleges require a masterís degree; however, some colleges will accept applicants who are veterans in their field with only a Bachelorís degree. Bear in mind though, that even if you are a veteran Bachelor, you still have to beat the competition with all the veteran Master degrees, and there are people in line to those jobs! Some teachers will not work in Korea, unless they work in a college.

The only disadvantage with a college job is that the usual contract does not offer sponsored housing. Unlike Hogwans where they pay for your visa run expenses, a college will make you pay for your own visa run. (A Ďvisa runí is when you leave Korea and go to another country in order to get your work permit visa)

Colleges donít usually use recruiters for hireing teachers. Teachers are hired through word-of-mouth Ė So if you have a friend that works at a university and he/she is leaving soon, make sure that they are your best friend! Sometimes universities post their advertisements to a Job Board directly to this website, and you can reply to those.

Better still, many universities have jobs that are on the Hidden Jobs Market. Jobs on the Hidden Jobs Market are the jobs that have not been advertised, and sometimes not even fully budgeted or given the final approval.

One of the ways of accessing the hidden market is by contacting them directly. Who knows, maybe the university will have a position available in lets say, 3 months time. You apply with the advantage because they see your resume first. Perhaps your application could help sway the hireling managerís mind to finally push for that new opening to be approved!

Another way of accessing the 'hidden' jobs market is to submit your resume to the Hi Teacher database. Every day, potential employers browse our database looking for good teachers but not necessarily post any job advertisements. Submitting your resume to the database gives you an extra edge, so get ahead of the pack and do it today if you haven't done already!
