Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Daegu Pedophile

with 4 comments

It seems that I haven’t posted in awhile.  If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that this time of year is the busiest recruiting season so consequently I’ve been absolutely swamped.

Probably the biggest news in the ESL industry in Korea these days is the creepy 55 year old teacher who molested little boys in Daegu and then fled the country.  This just adds fuel to the fire of all the incidents regarding sex assaults against minors but this particular incident will again put another black eye on the reputation of foreigners (especially English instructors) in Korea.  Nothing irks me more than sex offenders, especially the ones that prey on little kids.  There’s only one solution for these guys.

The word that we’ve been hearing from immigration is that all potential E-2 candidates must now get a national criminal check (FBI) instead of the state background check that currently suffices.  The guy accused actually had a F-2 (yes, he ditched his wife in Korea) so I’m assuming that they will be checked too.  It won’t kick in until next year.  There suppose to post a notice this week so I’ll update once I hear more about it.

Once again, one loser makes it harder for everyone else.  I’d be willing to place a bet that this guy doesn’t even have a criminal record back home.  Remember when they made everyone get a criminal background check for the E-2?  The guy who taught in Korea and then fiddled with little boys in Thailand didn’t have a record as well.
