Job hunting tips on Hi Teacher

1. Keep your resume up-to-date on

  • Did you know that every time you update your resume, your resume gets
    bumped up the top? Being at the top will give you a better chance of
    employers viewing your resume, so please keep your resume up-to-date.
  • Don't want to let the every employer know that you are looking for a job? You can easily hide your contact details on Hi Teacher and make them anonymous. You can then approve which Employer is able to see your name and contact details
  • If you find a job (congratulations!), then you can log in to your account and 'Suspend' your resume, so that it does not appear on the list - and employers will not bother your anymore.
  • Submit a photo. (Read more how you can use a photo to your advantage)

2. Subscribe to our Job Alerts

As you may know, you can set up a job alert so that you will get the
latest jobs delivered to you by email.  Some people have been asking why they do not receive email alerts anymore. The reason is that we stop sending you an alert if you do not log in to your account for more than 30 days (for curtsey reasons). So if you want your alerts to be delivered again, please log in to your Hi Teacher account.

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 school.

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.
