Great city and school

My partner and I had already applied for a few jobs with other recruiters before we got in contact with OK Recruiting. We weren't finding quite what we wanted and so we sent an email to Jay. He was very quick to respond and from then on he was polite, helpful, and did his best to get us sorted with a job that suited us. He helped us navigate through the particularly difficult hurdles of this Covid-19 time as well. We landed a job in Jeju and it is not only a beautiful island, but the school is wonderful!

So Helpful

I was brand new to teaching and living abroad, so, naturally, I was very nervous about the whole process. Jay with OK Recruiting was so helpful to me. He responded fast to any questions or concerns I had.
He truly listened to the things I wanted to find in a school, and he matched me with a great one.
Covid made it an especially challenging time to travel, and Jay was great with helping me through the barriers.
He continues to be available to my school and I for questions, which I appreciate.

Good job in the city of my choice.

Jay at OK! was very supportive in the process of getting me to Korea. I left Canada to come here during Covid and Jay was very helpful and patient during the entire process. I would recommend Jay and OK! recruiting to anyone. He is easy to get ahold of and answers questions very promptly. I've been very happy with him. Jay helped me find a school that offers programs that match my teaching experience and preferences. The staff at the school has been very friendly and supportive since I arrived in Korea. I am thankful that I was able to find comfortable work in an uncertain time.

Jay Is Awesome

I received an initial response and potential job positions from Jay within hours of contacting OK Recruiting. Jay was considerate of my preferences and respected my interview decisions. I signed my contract at a time when circumstances were volatile, but Jay was supportive, helpful, and patient with my inquiries and emails. Within reasonable hours, Jay would always respond in a quick and timely manner. Even after arriving, he has been checking in once in a while to make sure I'm doing alright. I highly recommend contacting Jay if you are looking to find a teaching position in Korea!

Trust Jay

I truly cannot recommend Jay enough, he is amazing. Jay went above and beyond the expectations of any recruiter. He helped me get a wonderful job at a school perfect for me. The location of my school is just what I wanted. The teachers and staff at my school are so kind and wonderful. Jay also ensured I got to Korea safely. Whenever I had a question or concern Jay quickly responded and always helped. Without Jay's reassurance and guidance coming to Korea would have been impossible. He works hard to make sure you have the best experience.

My overall experience

Jay was my recruiter and they're great at their job! Through OK Recruiting, I was put in contact with a well known school and I've been very happy here. I've taught at a few schools in Seoul and this one is definitely the best for me. A slower pace, a bit more nature and friendly people are all around my new area. And it's still just minutes away from all of the hustle and bustle of Jamsil, Hongdae, and Myeondong!

During the hiring process, I had a lot of support with anything I needed and felt very secure. They were with me every step of the way - the interview, meeting and the first day. They even checked in with me a few months later to make sure everything was still going well!

Overall, Jay is very attentive and time efficient. I can fully recommend them!

Magnificent!

This is my 2nd year in Korea and first time using OK Recruiting. I have to say that I was extremely pleased with the service provided. I contacted OK Recruiting, explained my situation and reasons for ending my contract short along with what I was looking for in my next job. Immediately, Jay found some jobs and next thing you know I had interviews and then a job offer. He congratulated and informed me of my next steps and referred me to a link of all the documents I would need for my E-2 Visa transfer. Throughout the whole process(from interviewing to getting my E-2 Visa transfer) Jay would periodically check up on me to make sure that I was okay or if I had any questions. His quickness was greatly needed when I had an issue with immigration. The immigration office requested some additional that I had no idea where to obtain. I sent him my email and not even 20mins had gone by when he called. After hearing my explanation, he assured me that I still had time and that he already sent me the address of the government office I had to visit to obtain them. Come the following week, I went to said location, got the documents and headed off to immigration where it was processed. I have to say, the E-2 Visa transfer gave me a scare and stressed me out(this literally just happened about a week ago). If it weren't for Jay's swift response and support I wouldn't have known where to go or what to do. Jay is a life saver! In short, OK Recruiting is amazing and I would totally recommend it.

What would you improve about this program?
There is nothing to improve on, everything is great. Jay is a professional and very knowledgable at his job.

Used Twice and Not Disappointed

I've used OK Recruiting twice and had Jay as my recruiter both times. Each time he has been super helpful and very kind. He helped me out each step of the way and I can always rely on him to respond to messages and emails very quickly. Jay went out of his way to make sure my transition into each job went smoothly. He was never bothered about the hundreds of questions I asked and if he didn't know the answer would research or find the most accurate answer to my questions. Each job I have gotten using him has been a well run school with excellent facilities, staff, and housing. I have yet to feel unsafe taking a job through OK Recruiting and I would highly recommend using them for finding new jobs in Korea! It was a great experience for me and I am very thankful to Jay for all the help he has provided me.
