The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Why it Always Pays to get an Education

Read this today which should give us all a reminder that an education is important and while it is expensive, it’s never a waste of money in the long run.  There are a few posters on Dave’s that think otherwise.

There was once a time when men with limited education could count on good blue-collar jobs that paid well enough that they could lead comfortable middle-class lives.

Those days are largely gone and such men — many left jobless in the recession — are wondering what the future holds and what kind of work environment awaits them. In a particularly bleak assessment, the cover story of the summer issue of the ‘Atlantic’ magazine, entitled ‘The End of Men,’ concludes that men may not be well suited to the 21st-century economy.

“What if the modern, post-industrial economy is simply more congenial to women than to men?” it asks. Strength and stamina are no longer the keys to economic success, the article observes. Instead, social intelligence, communication and the ability to focus, typically female traits, are today’s prerequisites for success.

More women than men in the North American workforce now:

As well, the article notes, for the first time in the U.S., women hold a majority of the country’s jobs. Well, guess what? For the first time in Canadian history, there were more employed women (7.1 million) than men (6.9 million) in 2009, according to Statistics Canada.

Don’t think that just because you have a F-4 visa, you can come to Korea and live comfortably.  You can definitely find work but if it’s teaching you find, it will be illegal without a degree.  And there are definitely people that do it which just creates further hurdles for people who are teaching here legally.  I do know of a few guys here on F-4s that are teaching, doing privates, correcting essasys, and editing, but they seem to work harder for much less pay than those who have steady jobs.  Basically their choices are extremely limited.

In conclusion, get your degree; it’s never too late.
