EPIK- the English Program In Korea is one of the biggest employers of teachers in
Korea. They hire for basically all the public schools in Korea (except Gyeonggi
province). They've got a great program and super benefits.

You will be placed in a particular school within the province of preference during
the orientation period according to your abilities and interests.

EPIK hires for almost all provinces and cities in Korea (popular areas will fill

Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Incheon, Gwangju, Daejeon, Ulsan, Gangwon, Chungbuk, Chungnam,
Jeonnam, Gyeongbuk, Gyeongnam, Jeju

Many of the towns and mid-sized cities in these provinces are deeply rooted with
unique traditional culture and history providing an immersion in the Korean
experience. Air quality is cleaner in rural areas than in most big cities across
South Korea, plus the cost of living is generally lower.

These are excellent ESL teaching opportunities for teachers who are looking to
spread their wings and gain invaluable and transferable teaching experience in
public schools in Korea. For first-time teachers, whether you have never taught
abroad or never taught at all, these jobs represent an amazing opportunity to gain
classroom experience. Preference is given to those with experience but if you are a
sincere, motivated person who loves to work with young kids, this could be a perfect
opportunity for you.

If you decide you would prefer getting a unique cultural immersion experience we
highly recommend applying for these teaching placements. In these situations
teachers are embraced by the communities and they often learn more Korean and get
more exposure to traditional culture.
