Hi everyone,

Was wondering if an apostille is necessary for university degrees (BA and MA) when applying to university jobs if I go in from an E2-D10-E2 visa switch? I'm considering applying for uni jobs in Fall 2013, and am wondering if the apostille is only required by immigration, or if it's required by universities as well...

Likely not, since you are transferring. Yet the Universities can have their own requirements at times for job applications. Sometimes they really do like to see the lamb skin and a nice sealed transcript.

Plus you can also expect some UNlateral thinking.

University: Oh we want the apostilled degree.
You: I do not need it, I can just transfer.
University: Ok! We understand.... So can we have the apostilled degree.
You:I do not need to have one... (explanation is given and lot more words).
University: Oh! You are too hard to deal with. We will go with someone easier! The offer is refused.

Good Luck, maybe some one else can give better advice.

How often does this happen Skippy? Should I just get my degree apostilled just to be on the safe side?

Another set (CBC and degree copy) with apostilles for immigration = no.

Each university has their own list of documents they require when they hire new staff. They MAY ask for them. They may not.

In my experience they usually ask for: your original undergraduate degree, post graduate degrees/certificates, sealed transcripts, list of publications (if appropriate/relevant), certificates of employment and/or letters of reference.

What's a certificate of employment? Is that after I complete my first year, and thus would not be something I bring to a job interview?

Proof of prior employment.

Employee name
Employee ID (passport/ARC number)
Employer name
Employer contact info
Job name
start date
end date
brief job description
Employer signature/stamp/seal.

Plus search the board it as been described a few times before.

google: site:forums.eslcafe.com/korea "Certificate of Employment"

As Tom said, it is used as proof of experience. Sometimes a reference letter can be used in liu of.

My uni asked for a recent FBI CBC. I'm getting it apostilled just in case. It only takes a couple of weeks extra, and costs about $10.
