    ESL Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at English Program in Korea (Providence, RI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on the first day their applications opened and heard back a few weeks later seeking to schedule an interview. Keep in mind when you input your availability, the time slots are in KOREAN time, so make the adjustments before you submit. I prepared my answers for common questions in advance, bought a webcam with reliable sound, and wore a blazer. Th interviewer spoke to me briefly on the webcam and then asked to turn off the cameras because his eyes were hurting? I got the feeling I was the 100th person he had talked to that day. It's kind of hard to make yourself stand out with that kind of response, but I remained professional, answered all the questions with references back to my experience. It was short, to-the-point, and I got the job. I get the feeling the positions are offered on more of a first-come-first serve basis, instead of based on credentials.
