Teaching is quite different from working in a BPO/Call center company. If you have been there for a while, you are probably used to a fast-paced environment. You basically need to speak more than the person who is on the other side of the line. In the education industry, it is less about speaking and it is more about understanding and listening to your students. A lot of people who came from the BPO industry failed to adjust themselves to the new environment and often times messed up with students’ feeling by speaking too much by themselves. We have seen a lot of cases. An applicant might be very fluent in speaking, however, they were not loved by the students since they could not figure out what they needed to do for the students.
In a call center, you have to deal with English native speakers, however, many people who came from the BPO/Call center industry try switching their career to the education industry. If you are one of them, remember the fact that working in the education industry is completely different. You will need to learn again from scratch or adjust yourself from the beginning to provide our students’ needs.
As Koreans, we appreciate your interest in K-Drama and K-Pop. It may help you to get some attention from Korean students, however, not all Koreans are into it. It is mostly the interest of young Korean women. K-Drama and K-Pop are just one piece of our Korean culture and you will need to learn more of it as you work in Oncub.
It does not matter how much information you currently have about Korea as long as you are open-minded to gain more knowledge about it while working with us.
It is unnecessary, our Korean students are able to understand basic English. However by listening to our podcast, “Do It Like Me”, you can learn more about the simple expressions that we think that may be helpful for your teaching especially if the student is a beginner.
