Education Adventure is the Way To Find a Job in Korea

9/10

I have had the pleasure of working with Sally and Education Adventure twice now while teaching in Korea. The first time was shortly after university. Sally found me a great job working at a hagwon (yes, I know hagwons have a bad rap and you may think this is impossible) in Suwon, just outside of Seoul. The second time Sally found me a great job in Busan that had everything I was looking for in a teaching position. The reason I chose Sally over other recruiters was because she listened to my needs and wants and didn't put me into the first position she had available. Also, she has been there to answer any questions I have had during both of my experiences in Korea, whether they be prior to my arrival about my visa or after landing in regards to working hours, overtime pay, health insurance, or any old random question. She and Education Adventure have been extremely professional, helpful, and I would recommend them to any of my friends. Stick with Sally! She knows what she is doing and will find the right school for you!

Highly Recommend Education Adventure!

10/10

For anyone looking to teach English in Korea I would highly recommend going through Education Adventure! Sally, who runs the program, will guide you every step of the way and make sure that you feel comfortable throughout the process of securing a teaching position. She takes the time to get to know you and really focuses on what positions would be a good fit based on your personality, teaching experience (which was none, in my case), and other preferences you might have. Any time you have a question or concern you can email, call, or Skype Sally and she will respond very quickly. She even takes the time to visit some of her teachers in Korea!

Working with Sally and Education Adventure was a great experience and I couldn't be happier that I chose to use them as my recruiter. If you are unsure about who to use, use Education Adventure! I promise you will be happy with how you are treated. Sally makes you feel very comfortable, in what could otherwise be a very intimidating process.

How can this program be improved?

Honestly, I am not sure what I would change. Everything was so easy!

8/10

I am very happy with the work Education Adventure did to secure me a school in Busan. Sally really went the extra mile with everything. She held my hand during the entire recruitment process, telling me exactly what I needed and what I had to do. I also have to give her a big thumbs up for helping me get to my school. I was supposed to find my own way from the Seoul Airport to the Gimhae airport I order to get my flight to Busan and Sally actually arranged a for someone to meet me at the airport, buy my bus ticket and walk me right to the ticket counter. I was dreading trying to figure out how to get to the next airport to make my flight in time but Sally took care of that for me. The school she set me up with is great. The only thing I feel I need to mention is, make sure you're not the only foreigner at the school you're going to teach at. It can be really hard to make friends if you don't have anyone to show you around. Otherwise you're stuck venturing out into the city to visit foreigner bars and hoping to meet people who will take you under their wing.

Better explanation of the contracts. Especially concerning the vacation time.

9/10

Education Adventure helped me a lot with applying and adjusting to this new career. Although there was a time difference between us, they were always well-organized and kept me updated for anything important. There were some parts that were arduous, but Education Adventure -- Sally -- solved the problem right away. Sally also gave me a lot of great information about the place I'll be located at, as well as fun places I should visit in Korea! It was also great for Sally to provide and give me information/dates to meet with other foreign teachers! So far, I am enjoying working here!

Education Adventure

10/10

Education Adventure really helped me out with my move to South Korea. Any questions I had they were answered. I am so thankful I found this recruiting company. I really love it here in Korea, I have been surfing and paragliding so far this year. I have done so much travelling, and met a lot of other teachers. After hearing about their schools and housing I am so thankful for where I ended up. I am lucky that my school promises me vacation time, they help get you settled away with all the paper work and housing. I really enjoy my work and my weekends because there is so much to do in Korea. This move was the best thing I could've done for a year off from school, and I owe it to Education Adventure for making it possible.

How can this program be improved?

I would include websites that help teachers learn to read and speak Korea.
