The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Foreign Talent-Hunting Program to Start in 2010

with 4 comments

I mentioned several times before (here, here, and here) that it’s quite difficult for foreigners to work in professions other than teaching.  I think the new measures mentioned here may not immediately open up new doors for foreign talent (other than teaching) but at least it’s a good start IMO.

However, there seems to be a lot of strings attached:

The Ministry of Justice plans to give foreign professionals advantages in gaining permanent residency or F-5 visas, if their potential and present contributions are deemed essential.

In addition, those who purchase real estate in designated areas such as the special economic zone of Jeju Island or live in those areas for five years or more will be eligible for the privileged visa status.

This may be a good idea (kind of like a WorkNplay for non-teaching gigs) but I have a hunch that it may be geared more towards migrant workers seeking factory (or DDD) gigs.
