* Your photos are just as important as your resume


Along with a proper ESL resume, photos are a key part of the application process when attempting to secure a quality ESL position in Korea, and Asia in general. Private school directors are seeking teachers who not only have the aptitude for the work, but who also look presentable, and can properly represent their school in such a competitive market.

As recruiters, we always require photogenic photos, preferably two or three.

Things to keep in mind:

  • What we require is smart clean-cut, clean-shaven for the males.
  • Can be casual or formal.
  • A nice smile! As the proverb suggests: “All people smile in the same language”.
  • Proper colors including contrasting background, proper lighting etc.
  • Secondary photos (ONLY)can be with friends or family, or alone. Active photos. Photos with children and/or teaching are helpful.

Things to avoid:

  • Wear a hat or sunglasses
  • Take a picture with another person (as primary photo)
  • Have tattoos shown 
  • Have piercings other than in your ears
  • Show excessive skin

Along with your formatted resume and you will be surprised at how your chances improve…
