PlanetESL is a recruiting and teacher placement agency operating out of Seoul, South Korea. We have extensive experience in the ESL field in Korea and really understand the needs and concerns of teachers coming to a foreign country to work and live. Having evolved from when we were first established as “Career Connections” in 1999, our aim at PlanetESL today more than ever is to provide comprehensive, knowledgeable and professional guidance to prospective ESL teachers who have the sincere desire to come to South Korea to teach English while at the same time learning about the richness and uniqueness of Korean culture and everyday life. We strive, through dedication, hard work and genuine care for our teachers, to ensure that they are fully prepared for what to expect here, both in terms of the culture and lifestyle of Korea and in terms of contracts and working conditions. Because of our integrity, commitment to our teachers and our extensive first-hand experience in this industry, PlanetESL has quickly become well known and highly respected for the professionalism and genuine care with which we place every teacher.

Our Goal For Teachers

Our goal is to provide PlanetESL teachers with all the tools, information and support they need to perform the best that they can and get the most possible enjoyment out of their experience in Korea. We accomplish this goal by:

  1. Laying the entire hiring process out from A to Z and helping our teachers through it step-by-step so they are comfortable and know what is going on at all times.
  2. Preparing our teachers before they arrive in Korea for the cultural, lifestyle and work-related differences they will experience.
  3. Remaining available to our teachers throughout their entire contract for guidance and support so that they never feel that they are on their own.

We have learned from experience that teachers who are properly prepared for what to expect before they come and who have someone they can trust and rely on throughout their stay in Korea not only perform their jobs more effectively but are so much happier and able to enjoy their experiences in Korea so much more.

Our Goal For Employers

Our goal is to provide PlanetESL client employers with qualified instructors who match their specific needs and to ensure that the entire hiring process is completed in an organized and efficient manner. We accomplish this goal by:

  1. Screening all applicants and presenting our client employers with only those who are energetic, open-minded and meet pre-specified educational and teaching experience requirements.
  2. Assisting our client employers in all aspects of the hiring process including interviews, work visa applications, flight arrangements, airport pickup and post-arrival counseling.
  3. Putting our reputation behind every teacher we provide by guaranteeing our client employers’ complete satisfaction for a full 90 days or their money back.

We value the reputation and success of our client employers as much as our own and endeavor to select teachers of only the highest caliber and moral character. Our vast experience over the years helps to ensure that the entire hiring process is completed in a timely, efficient and professional manner, enabling our clients to concentrate on what is most important…their business.
