The most common problem of the application process in some ESL companies is the fact that we have to wait for a week or two to start opening slots and teach.
I know most of us are aiming to get hired as soon as possible (especially to start in the current cutoff and receive salary on the next payday).
NativeCamp is a Japanese ESL company which just recently offered home-based teaching positions.
It has its own teaching platform which is very easy to navigate and use.
NativeCamp has an application portal where applicants can log in and out any time they are available to finish the whole application process.
Most companies require applicants to wait for at least three (3) days or more for the applicants to start the hiring process or even to start teaching.
They will schedule you for an interview, demo lesson, and training and/or orientation, which typically last for many days depending on the applicant or the facilitator’s availability.
It’s a hassle for some because it’s undeniable that days are wasted.
Therefore, if you want to take a shorter wait, this company is for you.
Are you ready for the blast? Here it is.
These are the five easy steps to get the job. However, before we discuss each step, know where to find the hunting ground first. You may click the link for the online application form:
Application Process on NativeCamp
Now let us discuss the application process one by one.
- English Proficiency Test
This will decide whether you can go on the next phases or not. You have to get at least 75% score. The test is composed of forty – (40) items.
You do not need to worry because it is easy especially if you have a little knowledge about grammar rules and vocabulary,
- System Check
Unlike other ESL Companies, NativeCamp does not schedule applicants for a System Check via Skype. Their own system will provide the first phase of the check.
Therefore, you do not have to write reminders on your phone or to put sticky notes in places where you can easily see them to remind you of your schedule.
Again, just log in on your applicant page any time you think you can have the System Check. Stay online for ten (10) minutes and if no one from the HR gave a ring, try again after several minutes for they might be busy conducting System Checks to other applicants.
Below are the things that you will check:
Be reminded that there will be a short interview during the check. It is just a brief introduction of yourself for the HR staff to see for themselves that there are no background noises on your work place.
So check your camera, headset and see to it that the teaching place is conducive for learning.
System Check is from Tuesday to Saturday, 10:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m.
If you passed this stage, you can proceed to the next step.
- Learning Kit
Here, you will have to watch the sample demo lessons and read the guidelines in conducting classes.
The videos would be your guide in conducting the demo lesson so familiarize the lesson flow and the lesson material to ace the demo with the NativeCamp staff.
- Demo Lesson
You are almost there.
Go online and wait for the staff to call you.
As soon as the staff calls you, proceed immediately to your demo.
