Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Salaries on the Increase?

leave a comment »

Was doing some competitive analysis of several hagwons and public schools and noticed that salaries at some of the big named academies in Korea have increased their salaries for English instructors from the time I did the same study about 6 months ago.  Bear in mind that it wasn’t much but at least 3 of the schools that I looked at had their base salaries increase by at least 100,000 KRW per month.

Granted it wasn’t all the schools that I looked at but there wasn’t a decrease in salary anywhere.  Chain schools tend to be more strict about negotiating salaries as they tend to have ranges that are in line with education and experience.  Hopefully this is a sign that the economy is finally turning around, which may ultimately be bad for us recruiters (and schools).

Last summer was a breeze in terms of reaching the numbers but not all recruiters were being paid in full.
