I used SeoulESL to get my first hagwon job in Korea. I tried other recruiters who initially pitched jobs in Seoul but then tried to get me to accept offers in other locations, which I didn't want. SeoulESL mostly hires for Seoul jobs, hence the name.

Scarlett was the recruiter I worked with from SeoulESL. She treated me well and quickly answered my questions about the job. She was truthful. Other teachers at the school said they didn't have as great an experience with her.
