Applying to Gogokid is easy! All you need to do when applying to Gogokid is four simple steps, which makes applying to Gogokid the easiest application process ever! It only took me a couple of hours to complete all of the steps.
I started teaching online in June of 2016 and since then I have worked at four different online schools. That’s why I know Gogokid has the most efficient application process. It is quick and painless, but they give you all the tools you need to succeed at the company.
The four steps you will take when applying to Gogokid include setting up your interview, doing a demo, filling out your profile (video, photos, passport/license, transcripts, etc.), watching a few training videos (easiest training videos ever by the way), and doing a mock class with a mentor teacher.
My favorite part about the process is that you get to work with a mentor teacher in their teacher portal. Most companies don’t give you access to the real teacher portal until you start working at the company. However, Gogokid wants you to learn how to use the portal with a real live teacher. All of the other companies focus more on how you teach, which is great, but they miss the step that includes the logistics of the portal.
Due to the fact that Gogokid provides training on these logistics right after you finish the training and paperwork, you really feel prepared! It helps cut down on nerves because when you are teaching on a new platform that is unknown to you, you can get super anxious and concerned about all the things that could go wrong. However, when you have a one-on-one live training, you have nothing to worry about! I really appreciate Gogokid including that in their application process.
When I taught my first class I definitely felt prepared and more confident than at any other company I have worked for thanks to that live training class in their portal.
Now let’s dig into the steps for applying to Gogokid!
The first step for applying to Gogokid is to apply on their website. If you haven’t already applied, you can use my referral code: REZFQXRA. The main requirement is that you have a bachelor’s degree.
Set up your interview (Referral Code: REZFQXRA). When I applied in September of 2018 the interview slots were very limited. They are interviewing from Beijing so expect the times to be late evening or early morning hours. The first time I looked at the options there were none that were reasonable for me, but then I checked back a day or two later and a slot opened up that worked for me. So keep checking if you don’t see a slot right away.
The interview is 15 to 20 minutes long. They will ask you basic questions and you will have to do a 10 minute demo. To prepare for the demo you will have access to materials. They also provide you with the type of qualities they are seeking for prospective hires before the interview.
After the interview they send you an e-mail letting you know if you were hired or not. I was told they would respond within 24 to 48 hours and I heard back within 12 hours. I interviewed at 10:30 pm and got the congratulations e-mail at 5:30 am. If you are hired you will move forward with setting up your profile and doing orientation. You will also have to send in paperwork (degree, identification, and a teaching certificate if you have one). On your profile you have to create an introduction video, upload three pictures of yourself, and write a bio. For orientation you have to do 2 videos (25 minutes total) and 2 quizzes.
Once you complete everything from number three you will be able to open up your availability to teach. One of your first lessons will be a trial lesson, but it is actually a mentor session. The mentor is a fellow teacher that will guide you through the tools in the teaching portal. You will also do a mock lesson so you can get feedback on your teaching. It is very relaxed and super helpful. I wish every company would do this because it made me feel so much more confident going into my first lesson.
Please be advised, if you have manycam or camtwist and you attempted to delete them, but they are still defaulting as your main camera, plan to resolve that issue before your first lesson. Otherwise you won’t be able to switch your camera. Check out my video on this to learn more.
If you have any questions at all, please leave them in the comments or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you finish applying to Gogokid, you have to let me know if you agree. Be sure to tell me about your experience in the comments. Read the post and let me know if there was any other reason why you think the Gogokid application process was so easy.
