The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Fresh Graduates Earn W2.2 Million on Average

This from the Chosun Ilbo.

Lot higher than the overall average salary and these figures from 2005 (I know, old data).

Pretty much on par with hagwon salaries of native English instructors (2.0-2.2) for fresh graduates. I know that you may say that native instructors get free housing which would amount to another 400,000 to 600,000 KRW per month (avg.). Keep in mind though, that many mid to large size firms hand out performance bonuses on a quarterly basis that could equal up to one month’s salary and sometimes even more.
