When I first came to Korea I made the mistake of NOT going through Jeju ESL. I landed a job on Jeju island with a less than reputable recruiter and paid the price. The first hagwon I ended up in turned out to be more or less of a scam. I was not getting paid as promised, and it was an all around bad situation. I enjoyed teaching and living in Korea, but working for a dishonest employer who would not pay me as promised was not an option. I had no other choice but to leave that school after a month. I was left homeless and jobless halfway around the world with a very uncertain future in Korea.
Then, through some friends I had met here on Jeju, I was set up with Jeju ESL. I would not be where I am without the help of Jimmy and Jason. The situation I was in was incredibly complex, but they took me in and more or less rescued me. From helping me through the changing E2 visa laws, to guiding me on my quest for a new visa over in Fukuoka Japan, they were there for me all the way. I am now working at a great school and incredibly happy. All of the amazing friends here on Jeju (Jeju ESL included) have helped me immeasurably and I am so grateful for it. Don't make the same mistake I did... go through a reputable, honest, and helpful recruiter FROM THE START. Go with Jeju ESL
