This is my second year teaching English in South Korea and honestly Korvia is the best recruiter out of all the other recruiters I've used. Korvia went above and beyond my expectations.

My first year working in South Korea wasn't the best experience. When I applied to my first recruiter, they wanted to interview me right away and I also got the job right away. However after getting all my paperwork done, they basically ghosted me. After arriving in South Korea, I was expected to find my way to a hotel in Gangnam from Incheon Airport and all they wrote in the email was to find a black taxi to take me there. This was my first time in South Korea and I had no idea what to do or where to go! After ending my first year, I emailed the recruiter TWICE (one in Jan 2017 and another in June 2017) and asked for another position but they never responded to me both times.

But luckily I did NOT have this problem with Korvia. They were very professional throughout the entire recruiting process. They emailed me possible schools that fit my preferences and always emailed me back if an interview was successful or unsuccessful and why it was so. When I arrived back in Korea for my second year (I went back home for a year), Korvia very kindly arranged an airport pickup service despite my flight landing at 3am KST. It was definitely very helpful to have someone pick me up instead of lugging two big suitcases around looking for a way to get to my hotel.

Overall, I definitely recommend Korvia. I've had another recruiter put in their profile that I'm Korean-American even though I specifically stated that I am Vietnamese-American and had a directly rudely ask me in an interview why my parents never taught me Korean. Trust me. Korvia is doing something right and I would definitely use them again should I decide to stay another year in South Korea.

When I decided to move abroad to teach I didn’t know what recruitment programs were out there. I stumbled upon Korvia in a google search and was drawn to the thoroughness of their website and the fact that they worked directly with the Gyeongsangnamdo province in South Korea. I had already decided that I did not want to be in Seoul, and to know from the start that I could choose to be closer to Busan was an immediate win for me.

I was able to complete most of the initial process with just the information available on their website. You can find almost everything there. My recruiter was Brian Yun and he was always willing to help and answer questions. I was never left guessing about anything. Even after arriving in Korea, I received messages checking on me and seeing if I needed help with anything. I also received a lot of help from Daisy and other members of the team. They support you start to finish!

How can this program be improved?
I couldn’t have really asked for anything better than what Korvia provided for me. Moving over seas can be extremely expensive and intimidating, so having a team like Korvia to help is highly recommended!

The interview process was very thorough and the korvia team helped me to make choices with age ranges and cities.
Korvia offered me loads of great positions, they were ever so helpful throughout this process.
While in korea they make check ups visa email. The position given to me was brilliant I didn't need much more guidance.
I would highly recommend Korvia and choose them again in the future.

When I first moved to Korea 5 years ago I used Korvia. The process was daunting but Korvia stuck with me and supported me the entire way. Things got complicated and at one point I even lost a position due to some unforeseen occurrences, but my recruiter did not give up. I was placed at an amazing school and I stayed there for four years. Fast forward two years later, my second time in Korea and with a new school.

Ann Park helped me maneuver through some tricky paperwork and a sticky move. She was professional and attentive to my needs and concerns. This is what you want--an agency that really takes their time to get it right and help you every step of the way, even if you´re a vet like me. Living in a country where you can´t speak the language you will always need support.

Imagine how shocked I was to see all of my papers filled out and only needing my signature. My immigration appointment booked for me, and the moving van at my previous apartment waiting to take me to my new home.

Thanks again Korvia and thank you Ann! You really lifted a lot of stress off of my shoulders. Thanks again!

Best,
Kelly

I travelled to South Korea this year (2018) with the help of Korvia Consulting. I was only with Korvia for two weeks and they found me a placement and a contract I was happy with. My recruiter was Jina Rhee and she was amazing, as was the whole team. Really professional and friendly. They were very organised and punctual and answered all my questions. They helped me get my documents processed very quickly and made sure I understood every step of the process. They made sure I had everything I needed and followed up with phone calls and e-mails once I arrived to make sure I was settling in okay, plus sent a gift to my work! I think they are a wonderful company full of very kind-hearted and professional people and would recommend them to anyone wanting to travel to Korea.

How can this program be improved?
Honestly, I don't think there is anything I would change. I was very happy with Korvia and would use them again in a heartbeat.
