What cities/provinces have we all applied for? :) Leave a comment in the section on my Tumblr!
This morning at the bright and early hour of 2.10am I had my EPIK interview.
It went OK, but I am a little bit disappointed! I’m not entirely sure I managed to a lot of my points across, and I think I rambled a little bit which is probably very very bad since my hiring depends on my ability to clearly express myself in English. D’oh
It’s not that I didn’t have any answers; simply that I could have been more concise with them.
I was quite tired since I didn’t sleep and had had a busy day. (Christening, followed by a friend’s BBQ), so that is my defence, nevertheless I still think I could have sensibly prepared myself a bit more beforehand. I’ve obviously researched so much and am dedicated to the job and moving to SK, however it’s how well I showed that on the spot, in an interview at 2am that I found difficult!
My interviewer did however praise my lesson plan and application, so hopefully they will go easy on me & give me a placement!
Fingers crossed, I’ll find out in a few days whether I’ve got it.
After frantically getting together my references and devising my own “teaching philosophy” (necessary for the final stage of the EPIK application) I’ve submitted the first bits and pieces to try and secure an interview! All very exciting. Not sure how long it’ll take to hear back about whether I get an interview but hopefully it’ll be sooner rather than later, though secretly I’d rather it was after the bulk of my exams! (So this time in 2/3 weeks).
PS: Only had one exam so far, but it went well! Wish me luck for the rest, and wish me luck on getting an interview, as well! Can’t be taking things for granted, now!
I’ve begun applying for EPIK, the Korean state school programme. I’m a little worried because I could well get posted out in the sticks, but it’s worth a shot, I guess. Apparently placements are first come first serve, so hopefully I’ve not left it too late.
