I cannot recommend Jeju ESL highly enough! From the initial email and phone call to now, six months into my contract, Jeju ESL has proven to be a paramount recruiting agency. I stumbled upon Jeju ESL through Dave's ESL Cafe, and its job posting was the first I applied to in South Korea. Jason reviewed my application and contacted me about one particular opening in Shin Jeju, (the amazing academy I now teach at). During the first phone call, he provided detailed information about the school, apartment, its surroundings, and the foreigner community on Jeju. Nothing was sugar-coated; it didn't feel like a sales pitch. It felt like a talking with a fellow teacher or expat, rather than a recruiter. Jason sincerely wants to match individual teachers with the right school. His concern is equally for the school and the teacher.
During the interview and visa process, Jason was one-step ahead of everything. He provided all the necessary information and requirements and made the whole process a piece of cake! He regularly checked-in to see if I had new questions or concerns before moving.
When I arrived on Jeju, Jimmy picked me up, gave me a little tour of my part of town, checked me into a hotel in a convenient location, and provided me with a map, contact information, and a set plan to meet with my school director. In my first three weeks on Jeju, he assisted with the medical check-up, obtaining the Resident Alien Card, and general settling in.
Jason has continued to check-in, and generously offered as-needed assistance during the contract.
Jeju ESL continues to go above and beyond typical recruiting agency benefits. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to teach in South Korea. Living and teaching on Jeju Island is a dream!
