"Footprints can help you get overseas faster, and better prepare you for life as an English teacher in a foreign country."
Steven Courts - 1st Review
"The past six and half years have been the best experience in my life! There are so many things that have made my experience unique and special. The students, the cross cultural friendships that you make, the sights…I could go on and on, and in the end, you know what you really discover that has made your teaching abroad experience so unique and special? You discover yourself."

"I remember a moment when I had an urgent question and it was late afternoon and I thought they won't answer and if they do, they won't be happy I'm calling so late in the day when it's time to go home. But, I got the opposite response. Footprints Recruiting was warm, nice, helpful and asked if I had more questions."
Brianne Beets - Testimonial #2
"Footprints Recruiting gave me the tools to not only find the right fit for me, but also gave a very basic breakdown of the steps and types of documents I needed to work abroad."
Erin Wylie - Teacher Testimonial
"During the interview process, Jamie sent great resources and information about the visa process. There was nothing negative about the experience and I have already recommended Footprints to my friends!"

"My experience with Footprints has been wonderful. My recruiter, Jamie, was incredibly diligent about keeping me in the loop about job openings or where I was in the application process. Whenever I needed to get in touch with him he would always get back to me the same day."

"The consensus is: for anyone who is thinking about coming to Korea, don't make it a maybe just do it. You won't regret it."
Jeremy Cain - Review #2
"If I may, a massive heartfelt thank you to all of you guys at Footprints for making everything about this whole experience such a breeze."
"Coming to Korea is certainly one of the best decisions I've made and I thank Footprints Recruiting for being so helpful in the process. I've been asked by several people that are intrigued in teaching abroad and I always mention Footprints because you all really made it as simple as possible and walked me through step by step."

"Thank you to Sean and the Footprints team for dedicated service with a smile."
Jeremy Cain: Review #1
"Korea is everything I expected it to be and more - challenging, rewarding, hectic, exciting, relaxing; you name it, I've experienced it. It's ridiculous how quickly the time passes while you're here, to think I'm already close to three quarters of the way through the year."
"Footprints Recruiting is one above the rest out there, where follow-ups and updates are lost in the battle for recruitment fees. I will definitely use your assistance in obtaining a position that suites me, in the future. I can see that you care and see that [each applicant who] applies [is] as important as the next, regardless of age, experience and credibility. I applaud and cheer for you. Thanks again!"
"Life in the UAE is interesting. Each day is a challenge as well as an adventure. I am very happy to be here and I am very thankful for Alison and Sean's help along the way."
"I had a very positive experience with EPIK (through Footprints). The school I was placed at was a reputable public school in a very nice neighbourhood. If I could do it all over again, I definitely wouldn't think twice."
Ruben Pagan - Testimonial #1
"I always recommend going through a recruiter, especially Footprints. English Program in Korea (EPIK) provides teachers with a 9 day orientation that made adjusting to Korea incredibly easy. We learned about Korean culture, language, the school system, food, and teaching strategies to prepare us for the classroom. Everyone is so friendly and down to earth, you meet so many people that are in the same exact situation as you and sharing that experience is already one way to connect."
"A massive heartfelt thank you to all of you guys at Footprints for making everything about this whole experience such a breeze. It's almost too funny when I'm talking to other teachers who applied independently - the looks on their faces as I tell them how I had no troubles, got everything sorted on time, and had everything laid out for me in black and white."
"Sean was the most delightful person to deal with. Thank you for preparing us for this opportunity and for supporting us throughout. Once again I extend my utmost gratitude and look forward to the next step in our journey together... a very excited South African."
"You do have to love Footprints Recruiting though. I've never seen another recruitment company reply so fast and work so efficiently."
“I like the fact that I am working for ADEC and not for a private school not just because ADEC seems to be a great organization but also I am part of this great reform they are doing for the future generations. Thanks for all your work and help! I am happy I went through Footprints."

"Finding a job overseas is overwhelming; there are so many options and it can be difficult to tell which companies are legitimate and which ones are too good to be true. Footprints made the process much less daughting."
Kim Owens - Testimonial #3
"I went through other agencies before arriving to Footprints. I knew from the start it was a great choice. I was rejected from other agencies for no apparent reason, I got the run around, didn't receive calls back....it was a nightmare! From the start Footprints has been extremely helpful!"
"I am absolutely loving it here in Al Ain and feeling really really lucky. We are seriously so happy here and so happy with Footprints!"
Steven Courts - 2nd Review
"Footprints Recruiting really does their research before placing you and there are no unpleasant surprises. I plan to use them again when I leave for China one day."
Emma Bell - 2nd Review
"Applying to teach in a foreign country and obtaining a visa can be stressful, and Footprints made the whole process so much easier."
"Thanks again for everything you have done, your guidance has been invaluable”
"Absolutely love the generosity in this Footprints Teachers in Abu Dhabi group. For a group of unacquainted individuals from all over being so kindhearted to others makes me feel I definitely made the right decision! #FOOTPRINTSROCKS!!!"
"Thank you so much for all your help and support throughout this process. I am here in Abu Dhabi and quite happy with the way things have turned out so far. It has been a pleasure working with Footprints, and I look forward to contacting you prior to my next job search."
"My experience with Footprints Recruiting has been great! Even after I got to Korea and started my new job, my recruiter, Jamie, was e-mailing me to make sure I had settled back into life here and the new job."
"Footprints, Alison, Bob and Sean, I really need to tell you that you are the most wonderful, helpful and friendliest "bunch" of people and I feel privileged to be working through you! Thank you so much for all the support and important information that you shared with us! I'm glad and thankful that I was able to find and stick with you! Thank you!!"
Review from John Bull
"I would like to thank Jessica and the rest of the Footprints staff for prepping me for this adventure. Strong communication and telling me "the real story" allowed me to come to the UAE with my eyes wide open." That has not been the case with my peers who state their recruiting agencies "misrepresented" or "never told me about that." The advice and counsel given by the Footprints Team has been spot on and very useful in this journey. I am nearly 90 days in to this journey and am completely satisfied with my decision and experience thus far! Thanks again, "

"I am truly having a blast! It's been awesome. It was very rocky at first, however the adversity has helped me to learn how to cope in any situation. In addition, this experience has help me bond closer to my husband and children. We love the UAE and so blessed to be here.

I had my interview with ADEC this morning in Abu Dhabi. I feel that it went well. Thank you so much for all of the helpful information and interview questions you provided leading up to today. Preparation is so important and I just wanted to let you know that you provided the right tools for me to do that. I also had the pleasure of meeting Ben after the interview.
