Due to new E-2 Teaching Visa regulations, a criminal background report is an essential document that must be provided. Applicants who have criminal convictions will not be able to obtain a working visa of any kind in South Korea. As these reports can take several weeks to obtain, applicants should request them as early as possible.
(Please read carefully!!!) A resume and a recent photograph are required and TeachEnglishKorea cannot begin any job search nor present applicants to any prospective employers without them. Resumes should highlight teaching experience, no matter how small, and reference contact information should be current.
Applicants must be aware that their photos are very important to employers in Korea as this is the first impression they will get of them. Photos should represent how one would look if one were actually going in for a job interview. Photos should be a smiling headshot that show the face clearly. Resume and photo sizes should not exceed 5MB or they will not upload successfully.
