Another e-mail from EPIK today stating that there is a potential date for orientation : ) Now it is not just hear say from Dave ESL cafe for me, but from someone who knows more about my job.
Here is what was sent to me from a consultant from KorVia in South Korea:

So…I know that EPIK training lasts for more than 1 day so having this tentative schedule makes me feel better about having a job- also it confuses me! So I arrive on the 18th good to know, JeonJu University is not close to Busan at all so that is funny.
I am however very happy to know that I am considered to be on their mailing list as having a job! 🙂 Jeff and I are near each other on the mailing list and maybe that is a sign that we will be near each other in Busan…the 2nd largest city in South Korea, oye vey. I feel like we will be alright, we both have so much that we want to accomplish while in Korea and it will be a great experience for both of us together and apart.
More to come once we find out more… Joyce did ask us for our addresses so EPIK is sending us our contracts soon. Well the e-mail says by mid July- oh my! So much for getting our documents in early to get the process rolling…!!! I am hoping that our timely manner will place us near each other in Busan. It is all coming together! Ahh I have started to pack away things and give things away.
