About

Gone2Korea Recruiting was created in 2002 between a small group of friends who were teaching English in the city of Gumi. We’ve grown a lot since then! Today Gone2Korea is one of the leading agencies for adventurous grads who are interested in teaching English in South Korea. American & Canadian grads constitute the majority of our candidates but we also assist Brits, Irish, Aussies and South Africans.

As your recruiter, our top priorities include:

a) Flooding you with an abundance of information & resources
b) Listening to your preferences & offering realistic advice
c) Matching you with a Korean employer
d) Getting you prepared

Oh ya, we’ll be answering all your questions along the way…we know you’ll have a lot of them

Ultimately, we’re with you through each step of the process. Job details, visa numbers, consulate forms, airfare details & everything in-between comes directly from us. We try to make things as seamless & stress free as possible for all our teachers.

Best moving abroad experience

I’m so glad I chose Gone2Korea as a recruiter! Kirk made the application process so much easier as I was afraid of not being able to correctly complete everything! He was so kind, understanding, and always got back to me quickly regarding any concerns or questions I had. They made me feel like I truly wasn’t alone in this big transition. If anyone is looking to come to Korea to teach I highly would recommend applying through Gone2Korea because the guidance makes this move so much smoother. Thank you!

Great company, awesome service

Totally satisfied with my decision to use Gone2Korea. I arrived in Korea last week and my school, apartment and location are spot on. When I started applying with recruiters way back in November I wasn't sure which one I was going to use but Gone2Korea quickly came out as the front runner. My coordinator always got back to me within a few hours and was candid, even blunt at times, about the realities of working in Korea. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Great company, awesome service, nuff said!

Great service and excellent support.

Gone2Korea was indispensable in my quest to find a job and move to South Korea. As someone who knew next to nothing about the process of teaching English overseas, my Gone2Korea agent helped me with every task throughout the journey. It's difficult to express how appreciative I am of Gone2Korea’s efforts in helping me navigate the obstacles that arose in the complicated process of obtaining a work visa. My stay in South Korea turned out to be even better than I initially expected. You'll likely find many stories on reddit of contracts being broken or not fulfilled by the Korean employer. I've had none of these issues with my placement at a private school in Seoul, and I think I owe that to Gone2Korea. All of my questions I had about the job contract, visa, the move abroad and living in Korea as a foreigner were thoroughly answered by my contact. I strongly encourage anyone who's interested in teaching English in Korea to work with the Gone2Korea site, as I've had an unforgettable experience with them from start to finish.

Loved it!

I've never used a recruiting service before so I was somewhat skeptical at first, partly because I had no idea what to expect but mostly because I read a number of distressing stories about recruiters on reddit. That being said, my experience with Gone2Korea was nothing short of excellent. They placed me at a fantastic school and made the visa application process really easy, something I was initially worried about.

My point of contact at Gone2Korea was Hosoon, she was totally amazing and I can't recommend her enough. She always responded to my messages within a few hours and called regularly to check-in. Looking back, she really did it all! She presented me with different job offers, prepped me for the interviews, guided me through the visa steps, arranged my airfare and lots more. I was impressed!

The school I'm working at is called SLP and it's located in the Mapo district. It's exactly what I wanted, a job in central Seoul! The school is quite modern and I work with a bunch of other foreign teachers who are all amazing. We also live in the same apartment building which is super fun.

If you're thinking about coming to Korea then I recommend going through Gone2Korea. I'll definitely be referring my friends to them in the future. Thanx!

No complaints

The Gone2Korea coordinator that helped me out asked me to write a review and I'm happy to oblige! Gone2Korea helped me land a great job in Suwon, which is a big city on the outskirts of Seoul, and things are going incredibly well. I've only been teaching here for a short period, since September, but I'm already thinking about staying for a few years. My schools pretty big, so I hear, with 11 westerners and over 20 Korean teachers, and everyone is super nice. Our director is pretty cool as well, he takes us out for dinner and drinks at least once a month. We basically take over an entire restaurant when we go, it's hilarious! I can't say enough about the kids, they're so eager to speak in English and I have a blast teaching them. I teach kindergarten kids in the morning and elementary kids in the afternoons. The kindergartner's are fun to work with but I prefer my afternoon classes with the older students a little more because it's easier to communicate with them. My apartment seems pretty standard from what I've been told by other teachers, it's tiny but comfortable. Anyways, Gone2Korea definitely hooked me up with a great job, at a great school, in a great location. I highly recommend giving them a shot, you won't be disappointed.
