Shimmering Seoul
I'm an SMOE Teacher (recruited through EPIK) in Seoul.. I have a detailed blog filled with information about the EPIK application process and my experiences coming to Korea from the USA. Please don't be afraid to ask questions. Subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay up to date.

how long did it take for you to hear back about whether or not you got an interview after you turned in your application to EPIK? I just turned mine in a few days ago and of course it's too soon to expect to hear back but I want to tone down my freak out til I'm supposed to hear back from them haha

I applied very early February 11th, got notified for an interview March 14th, had my interview March 31st, and I got notified I passed my interview on April 3. For this timeline you must keep in mind that they didn’t start scheduling interviews until near the end of March. So my timeline may be more stretched out than yours. However, EPIK receives hundreds of applications at a time.

If you applied a couple days ago you would have been in with the slew of applications that went in through recruiters on the first day (April 1st) that EPIK accepts applications from recruiters. Just give it some time. They have a good team that will get to you as soon as they can. You will hear either way if you get an interview or not. Be sure to check you spam folder as well. Just try and be as patient as you can. Avoid sending them emails inquiring if you have gotten an interview or not. From what I see on the Facebook Group they don’t like that. lol Also get on the Facebook group Fall 2013 intake and socialize (once they send you an email that they have received your application they will include the link to this group.) They want teachers that are professional yet friendly as well. Good luck to you!
