Congratulations! You passed the interview with EPIK! Now, passing the interview does not mean that you got the job. Your documents have to get to South Korea before the application deadline before EPIK sends you the contract. The deadline may be a few months ahead, but do not fall asleep! There are many applicants and jobs are filled on a first come, first serve basis. You have to send all the required documents to your EPIK recruiter as soon as possible in order to avoid being placed on the waiting list. In general, positions get filled three weeks before the deadline and those on the waiting list may travel to South Korea a few months later than expected, if they get to travel at all.
EPIK now gives preference to applicants who complete a 20-hour Practicum on top of their TESOL online certification. OnTESOL is one of the few online TESOL institutes that provides professional teacher training in an online format and allows graduates to complete a 20-hour Practicum anywhere in the world.
